In preparation for said grand event, Volvo has recently released the official photos of its new car.
Volvo C30's design is evocative of the C30 Design Concept which was revealed at the Detroit Motor Show early this year.
Said car retains the sporty and aggressive character of Volvo.
It also features an exceptional frameless glass tailgate, solid stance and the broad shoulders that have become Volvo's hallmark.
According to Fredrik Arp, President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation, "the new C30 is an ambitious new car for Volvo.
It is a car that aims for a group of young singles, or couples, with intense urban lifestyles.
These people prioritize excitement in design and driving characteristics, and this car should suit their varied tastes perfectly.
" "The new Volvo C30 plays an important role in our push towards a volume of 600,000 cars a year.
We are broadening our model program to make it possible for new, younger customers with an intense, urban lifestyle to choose a Volvo with the right appeal as early as possible," Arp added.
In addition, Steve Mattin, design director of Volvo noted, "the C30 has plenty of muscles in a sporty and compact package.
Anyone who recalls the Volvo SCC (Safety Concept Car) or the classic P1800ES will recognize the exclusive and convenient rear tailgate.
The distinctive tail lamps ensure that no one will be uncertain about which car they are following.
" All-new Volvo C30, which is the smallest in Volvo's model range, has 218 horsepower to the front wheels.
It is powered by a turbocharged inline five-cylinder engine that produces 236 pound-feet of torque.
It also has four sport bucket seats positioned comfortably inside the car, 160-watt stereo system, and other Volvo car parts and accessories that imply Volvo's excellence and style.
