The C30 performs as well as the S40, a vehicle Volvo touts as being as safe as its large sedans
Motor Trend

The 2008 Volvo C30 has been equipped with some cutting-edge safety equipment. As yet, though, it has not been tested by the federal government.

Motor Trend notes that "in addition to the standard bevy of front, side and side curtain airbags, the C30 protects with seatbelt pretensioners for all four seats, a whiplash protection system, a side-impact protection system, and dynamic stability traction control." Although the feds haven't yet crash tested the C30, Volvo claims that in its own crash testing, "the C30 performs as well as the S40, a vehicle Volvo touts as being as safe as its large sedans," Motor Trend adds.

ConsumerGuideAuto adds that other safety equipment includes anti-lock four-wheel brakes, antiskid system, daytime running lights, and Volvo's IDIS (Intelligent Driver Information System) that 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. Volvo's lane-departure warning system is optional.

Conclusion

The 2008 Volvo C30 is loaded with standard safety features, but it has not been crash tested by the feds.

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.
