Emerging victorious in the Entry Level Luxury Car category, Volvo's C30 hatchback richened its Swedish-modern character for 2012 with new Premier Plus and Platinum trim grades plus standard Bluetooth connectivity and a security alarm. In addition to having the lowest fair purchase price in its segment, the C30 enjoys exceptional advantages in maintenance costs and long-term depreciation.
