First launched back in 2007, the Volvo C30 is a vehicle that straddled the boundary between a sporty coupe and a hatchback, and it was eventually discontinued by the Swedish manufacturer in 2013. It’s a four-seater compact car with the subtle sense of style that distinguishes many smaller Volvo vehicles, rivalling many more prestigious alternatives with its slick design and comfy interior. It’s an appealing choice for a younger buyer who doesn’t need to squeeze too many extra people or bags in the back.
