The new Volvo C30--a two-door coupe that promises more fun and fuel efficiency--has arrived in the Philippine market.

Viking Cars, Inc., the exclusive distributor of Volvo vehicles in the Philippines, has introduced the redesigned Volvo C30, which comes with a more dynamic exterior styling.

"The dynamic new look further emphasizes the C30's playful appeal to the young and young at heart. Along with the angled lines of the front bumper, the new headlights, drawn offset and up, reinforce the impression of speed and sport," Viking Cars said in a statement.

The Volvo C30's new design is visible in the honeycomb grille bearing the Volvo mark, as well as in the trapezoidal headlights. It also boasts curvier contours in the rear.

Changes in the Volvo C30 go beyond skin-deep. Its 2.0L variant (P1.789 million) comes with a dual-clutch Powershift technology that reduces fuel costs by as much as eight percent.

The Volvo C30 also comes in the 2.5-liter turbocharged T5 variant (P2.389 million), which is equipped with luxurious standard equipment like leather seats, leather gearshift knob with aluminum inlay, leather parking brake cover, cruise control, trip computer, Bi-Xenon headlamps, rear spoilers, twin tail pipes and the Dynaudio Premium Sound System with Dolby® Pro Logic® II Surround Sound.

The C30 comes with Volvo's patented front structure that is divided in to zones using four types of steel with different deformation properties.

"The more the collision forces approach the passenger compartment, the less the material is deformed," Volvo said. "Different steel grades also are used in the rear to help protect occupants in the event of a rear-end collision."

    @Hmmm...almost all euro cars were unreliable after 4years of use in local conditions save for the seldomly used units...@CL just watch out since Volvos take a lot of time to develop so their new cars will live up to the tagline of world's safest cars
