The Swedish carmaker unveiled the facelifted Volvo C30 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009. The front and rear of the C30 facelift take cues from the Volvo S60 concept and the Volvo C70, which was also newly revealed. Further modifications on the front end of the 2010 C30 include new panels for the wings and bonnet. In line with all the other current models, the new C30 facelift now has a larger Volvo logo in the restyled honeycomb grille.
The rear end of the new 2010 Volvo C30 has also been worked on. Buyers for the new car have an option to specify the rear bumper assembly to be in the car's body color or a different one. A new Sports chassis is an option for buyers of all engine variants except the 1.6D DRIVe stop-start model. The chassis is meant to give the car a sharper ride.
