Volvo C30 and C70
Volvo’s design-conscious C30 hatchback was another victim of 2013. This versatile vehicle featured unmistakable back-end styling with a unique hatch made of glass that extended down into the rear bumper cover. Its interior was just as distinctive and premium.
In ‘Murica the C30 was powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine. It could be matched to either a six-speed manual or an automatic with five forward gears.
But the C30 hatch isn’t the only Volvo that landed on the chopping block last year. The brand’s C70 convertible was axed as well. It featured a complicated though very sturdy retractable hard-top. Two versions of the company’s 2.5-liter turbo five-cylinder engine were offered, though only one transmission was on the menu, the abovementioned five-speed slusher.
