Volvo has made the curious move of scooping its own model, the new C30
19 December 2005

Volvo seems to have taken to scooping its own cars. This teaser shot of the forthcoming C30 appears on the company’s global website, where a spoof front-page newspaper story tells of a ‘three-door sporty design’ due at the end of 2006.

Expect a concept version of the new C30 three-door hatchback to appear at the Detroit show next month, borrowing heavily from the SCC and 3CC concept cars with what Volvo claims will be ‘an unparalleled level of occupant safety for this class of car’.

A production version of the C30 arrives late in 2006.
