The Volvo C30 lineup was reconfigured last year, with the addition of a style-centric R-Design model. For 2010, the C30 gets more standard features, but the generally maligned custom-build program that enables various extra features and add-ons—at a much-inflated price—has been discontinued.

For 2010, a number of features that had been optional previously are now made standard; a trip computer, cruise control, and a Bluetooth hands-free calling interface are all currently included on the base C30 T5, while the C30 R-Design gets newly standard fog lamps. MotorWeek points to the "tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with satellite audio controls" that's standard across the model line.

The C30 R-Design model offers a more aggressive look, with different front and rear aerodynamic work, along with all sorts of sporty cues, but it's also something of a real sport package, boasting dynamic chassis control and upgraded wheels with Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires. Other options on the C30 lineup include a moonroof, leather upholstery, a navigation system with real-time traffic, a climate package, and a preferred package with active HID headlamps.

Conclusion

There are fewer options for the Volvo C30 than last year, but standard equipment gets a big boost; it's now a better value.

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.
