Reviews read by the TheCarConnection.com were impressed with the high-level standard and optional features available on the 2008 Volvo C30.

Car and Driver notes that in the C30, Volvo offers lots of standard gear in two trim levels. Version 1.0 comes with 205/50R all-weather Michelins mounted on 17-inch alloy wheels and a softer suspension that won't have you reaching for a kidney belt on pothole-riddled roads. "You'll get sure-footed reflexes paired with no-complaints ride smoothness, at least on the acne-free blacktops." Version 2.0 has higher-rate springs, shocks, and sway bars plus stiffer 215/45 tires mounted on 18-inch hoops. Expect a stiffer, more jarring ride, but those who like to feel the road will opt for this package.

Kelley Blue Book notes that in the C30, Volvo has standard air conditioning with cabin pollen filter, tilt and telescoping steering column, a driver information system, keyless remote entry, and anti-theft immobilizer system all standard issue. The 1.0's 160-watt/six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio package is replaced in the 2.0 by a 650-watt/10-speaker setup that includes a six-month subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio. Both audio systems feature an auxiliary input jack. The 2.0 also gets unique bodywork, chassis, and interior trim enhancements. A navigation system is optional, as is a Dynaudio sound system.

As Car and Driver says, "Volvo offers a long list of ways to make your C30 more expensive, including a custom-build program in which you ante $300 for a special menu that allows you to pay still more for a la carte items."

Conclusion

The 2008 Volvo C30 is loaded with premium standard features, and it can be customized like a tuner car.

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.
