Why is there no mention of the C30 in the 2007 Model Year Overview in the News section?? Shouldn't this car be out by the spring of next year? <p>What's taking them so long to get a rebodied S40 on the market? If this car was out already I probably would've bought it instead of the replacement 855 I just got.<p>Maybe it's going to be a 2007.5 like they did w/ the S40... I'm getting impatient...

I still don't understand why this car is taking so long to get to market. The basic hardware is already in production... I see Audi A3s all over the place, so I definitely think there's a market for "premium hatchbacks." <p>In general, I really think Volvo needs to get the lead out on getting products to market while the segment is hot (the XC90 was pretty late to the SUV game too).

The A3 has been around in Europe for years and has just now made it's way to our shores.<p>Be glad that we are getting the C30 at all.

The A3 isn't selling in big numbers. I don't know where you see them, but up here in Scottsdale in the heart of the supposed market for this car w/ 2 Audi dealers in town I almost never see an A3.
