Volvo has revised the front and rear styling of the C30 lower-medium hatchback.

The facelifted Volvo C30 will be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show next week and also includes the option of new sports suspension and sports styling kit, which will be offered separately to the R-design model which has yet to be revealed in facelifted form.

The engine line-up remains unchanged and still includes the 72mpg 104g/km Driv-e model. The revised C30 does not get new 175PS 2.4D or 205PS D5 because the new engines have not been engineered to fit the C30.

Prices for the facelifted car will be revealed nearer the revised C30’s on sale date early next year.
