The Dirt Road

The littlest Volvo, a quicker Quattroporte, and more...
BY TONY QUIROGA
April 2005


The littlest Volvo: Something smaller than the S40 sedan will be arriving at Volvo dealers by the end of 2006, confirms Hans-Olov Olsson, the CEO of Volvo Cars. Likely to be dubbed the C30, the diminutive Swede will be a front-drive hatchback coupe powered by either a four- or five-cylinder engine and built on the same platform as the S40. Styling will be reminiscent of the Safety concept car shown in Detroit in 2001 and the 3CC concept shown in Shanghai last fall. The little Volvo is part of an ambitious plan to increase sales from 460,000 to 600,000 by the end of the decade.

It is a Focus ST170 to be more precise...the one that those smelly, hairy armpitted Euro-freakos are getting...but not us. (No offense to any smelly, hairy armpitted Euro-freaks
)

We get a Volvo...and you know what? I don't care...because we still get the car, and I am just glad it isn't going to be in the price range of the rest of the Volvo line.

If I have the cash in the next few years (which I probably won't until I get my degree) the Ford Fiesta and this Volvo will be joining my 05 Focus.

No it is not a Focus ST170, the ST170 is the SVT Focus you can buy in the US. The MKII Focus ST is what you are refering to as the Volvo S30

I said a Focus ST170, not the Focus ST170. But you are correct...I should have been a bit more clear on the fact.

A focus ST170 is not made anymore, so you meant the ST170. 170 refered to the horsepower rating, the new car would be ST220. Just admit that you're wrong.

Hrmm, if your going for performance....for $24k why wouldn't you just get a Evo, or a WRX STi. Cause I beat those will knock the pants of that volvo.

I Don't know it looks ok, but it seems to use up alot of space with the funky hatch.... For my little focus I bought a table and 5! chairs and loaded them into it. You probably can't do that with that car....

I'm waiting for the R version (well, hoping).

OK, I'm hoping for any tight compact. Mid-engine would be sweet.
Need to get a few miles more out of the ST and a new roof on the house
