Volvo C30 Polestar Review + Dyno Test



Matt gives a thorough review of the Volvo C30 Polestar, and, suspecting the manufacturers are providing more horsepower than they let on, takes it to Hennessey’s dyno to check.

    Volvos are a unique breed, held tightly by those who like riding unicorns.

    Unique I like it! Too bad there is some 40 year old ass hat here in Plano, Tx with one who tries to race my c63 everyday on the way to work in full traffic weaving in and out of cars. Ruined these for me now every time I see one i think jackass

    Dam i was soooo wanting this thing to be good. The R-Design ones look cool and i almost brought one but the interior is average looking and decided on the Renault Megane RS265 instead. Good video and keep it up

    Wrong tyres, doesn't know how to use the keyless start, wrong strut brace.On decent tyres the C30 will rotate waay before it understeers.

    I have a 2011 non-polestar, with some modest upgrades. I think you should ride a few turns with me, and I believe the opinion you have of his car will change.

    The strut brace on my 2010 d4 does not bend like this. Mines solid.

    I have a C30 T5 with a polestar tune. It's no Golf R32 but it is a lot of fun. Smooth and good on gas. the only thing I don't like are the seats, yes the seats. Not as comfortable as you'd expect from a Volvo.. I've replaced it with a S60 seat now.

    most of the usefullness of a strut brace comes from its longitudinal, not traverse rigidity. that said, smaller volvos have for a long time been crappy, starting with the small hatches from 80ies (244 i guess), all through shitty 480, C40 of the late nineties. volvos start with size/class of the current S60

    The V40 Polestar looks really good too

    I like the one that Clarkson drove that had 395 bhp

    this guy always sounds so negative in all his reviews

    it's a shame. This could have been a great great car and it's definitely one I have always been interested in because of the turbocharged engine and the design but I can't believe how little they did transitioning it over to a pole star our design model. it's a good start but not enough hopefully Volvo will learn from this

    Such a missed opportunity. Volvo should have thrown on 18's, summer tires, and a real strut brace. Curious as to why you think the C30 doesn't rotate well, I've found (and my friends back me up on it) that my family's S40 T5 does rotate oddly well for a FWD sedan. Perhaps throwing it into a corner while trail braking was too much for the tires? Hmmm…

    Smokers are offen more uneducated. Driving with all season tyres may explain that.
