I didn't find any objectionable blind spots, though the side mirrors could be a bit larger.

While the 2011 Volvo C30 includes all the usual safety equipment that we've come to expect, even in small hatchback models, over the past several years—like electronic stability control, side airbags, roll-sensing side-curtain bags, and anti-lock brakes—the C30 comes with a few more features that aren't so common.

The C30 includes Volvo's IDIS (Intelligent Driver Information System), which delays certain functions, such as a phone call when the driver is engaged in a more complicated maneuver (heavy braking, turning, and so on). A rear obstacle detection system is also available as an option. Other options not otherwise available in this class are a blind-spot alert system (Volvo's BLIS) and a lane-departure warning system.

Although the federal government hasn't crash-tested the C30, its safety looks to be one of the best, among small hatchbacks. It's an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick, earning a top 'good' rating in every test category, including the new roof strength test.

Conclusion

The 2011 Volvo C30 offers top-notch occupant protection, plus several features you won't find in any other hot hatches.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
