This is one beauty. I have always loved the Volvo styling - and combined with their safety and styling like this, it becomes irresistible.

Let it roll !

Probably the replacement to C30 hatchback, S40 sedan and V50 wagon - the Volvo V40

"These leaked images come courtesy of the Facebook page of Motoryzacyjny – a Polish car mag whose name this blogger, for all his Eastern European shtetl roots, can't pronounce any better than the rest of you – and it shows us what appears to be a rather shapely sports hatch that aims to give the likes of the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series a run for their money."

Volvo has always appealed to our brains and now our hearts. Great looking car and everything else about a Volvo is good. Bring it on Volvo!

Volvo has confirmed that it will stop selling the C30 hatchback by the end of this year.

Volvo acknowledges that the C30 helped the company build its brand image in the States, but says the company must now reshuffle its lineup “to better position Volvo for the future and the next stages of our model portfolio.”



The C30 has never been a volume leader for Volvo, and so far this yearVolvo has sold just 2173 C30s in the U.S. Annual sales peaked at 4299 units in 2008, the car’s second year on the market, but fell to 4266 in 2007, 2906 cars in 2010, and 3471 units last year
