Volvo Debuts 2013 C30 Polestar Limited Edition
The 2013 Volvo C30 Polestar Limited Edition includes a turbocharged, 2.5-liter, inline 5-cylinder engine generating 250 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, increases of 23 horsepower and 37 lb.-ft. of torque more than a standard C30 T5 R-Design. Volvo says that despite the added engine output, the C30 Polestar Limited Edition's fuel economy ratings are unchanged at 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway with the manual gearbox and 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway with the automatic transmission.
Painted Rebel Blue and riding on unique 17-inch aluminum wheels with a matte-black finish, the Volvo C30 Polestar Limited Edition is equipped with "Polestar" badges, a numbered plate on the dashboard, choice between Black or two-tone Black-and-Calcite leather seats, and all of the standard equipment that comes with the C30 T5's Premier Plus trim level. Buyers can upgrade the C30 Polestar Limited Edition with a navigation system and a 650-watt Volvo Premium Sound System.
Volvo says the new 2013 C30 Polestar Limited Edition may become an "enthusiast magnet" when it arrives in U.S. Volvo dealer showrooms in October 2012, with a base sticker price of $32,445 that includes the $895 destination charge.
