The new Volvo C30 stands for individualism and ecologically friendly driving. Volvo tuner HEICO SPORTIV is sharpening this profile... in every respect.

“The future of our business model lies in the intelligent combination of performance-oriented products and ecological sustainability,” explains HEICO SPORTIV general manager, Holger Hedtke.

A philosophy that accompanies every step of the new Volvo C30 product development process. With the Volvo C30 Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe, HEICO SPORTIV will be launching the economy model as the basis for the extensive individualization program.

The standard factory specifications of the Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe already offer a wide range of innovative technologies such as start/stop driving with brake-energy recovery, reducing fuel con-sumption to 3.9 liters/100 km* (* Combined, in accordance with prescribed measurement technique (RL80/1268/EWG)). “This is our basic starting point for proving that ecologically friendly action and the pleasure of driving don’t need to be mutually exclusive,” says Holger Hed-tke. “In doing so, aerodynamically optimized components such as the radiator grille or under-floor intentionally remain untouched.”

After all the consumption cutting measures have been considered, the reprogramming of the origi-nal engine control unit generates a maximum power of 92 kW/125 bhp (for the 80 kW/109 bhp model) and maximum torque of 280 Nm (240 Nm). As a result, the Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe does zero to 100 km/h in just 9.2 seconds, beating its series-produced counterpart by 2.1 seconds! A maximum speed of 200 km/h is also attainable, 10 km/h faster than the series version.

Particularly striking are the remodeled design elements at the front and rear. In redesigning these, HEICO SPORTIV pursued its “subtle evolution” philosophy here, as well. The HEICO SPORTIV front spoiler – which replaces the original lower base section of the bumper – consists of fiber-strengthened polyurethane and is fixed using the existing anchorage points.

The same applies to the rear valence which mimics the front spoiler’s laterally arranged air vents and has a centrally placed diffuser element. The rear valence serves to accommodate the HEICO SPORTIV four pipe stainless steel exhaust system.
  

Additionally to these, HEICO SPORTIV also offers a range of further design possibilities.

This Volvo looks very striking on its golden platform. I think Heico Sportiv has been successful in making this Volvo attractive in every aspect.

I wonder if what’s the interior of this Sportiv will look like? Anyway, I have to agree that it is already looking great and awesome on that body paint and with its aesthetic design.

It’s already looked great on its gold body paint, well I can’t see anything wrong on this, though they are right that the design that it had is you can also see on the other car, but I’m still impressed with it.

wake up and pay attention. Most of these designs have been around since before or right when the Audi "shield" nose debuted.

how often do you see a Volvo wagon that can burn rubber like that. i hope the Volvo tuning world keeps expanding.

New design era, but HEICO SPORTIV also break a new ground in the early days of the product developmentHEICO SPORTIV 2010 Volvo C30 Facelift

For a hatchback that runs on a top speed of 124 MPH, I will say fair enough but I want to see a little faster Volvo C30. HEICO SPORTIV did their part just to tweak this car but I’m still looking for more improvement on this one especially the power output.

The Germany based, Volvo tuner - HEICO SPORTIV has released its latest refinement programme, which improves even more
