First unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in 2002, the entry-premium crossover SUV is steadily getting older. It is clear that the second generation model is long overdue. However, for the next model year the Chinese-owned Swedish brand has decided to introduce only a face-lifted 2012 Volvo XC90 version of the car.
The new AWD 2009 Volvo C30 R-Design, a spiced-up, limited edition version of the recently unveiled 2009 Volvo C30 compact hatchback will soon start shipping to dealerships near you. Differing from your normal not only with a more aggressive body kit, but also with a new drivetrain, the vehicle may become an interesting choice for a single person looking for a souped-up hatch and willing to pay a premium over your average French or German two-door pocket rocket.
