When you hear the name Volvo you may be forgiven for immediately thinking of their big bulky SUVs or sleek sedans. However, Volvo has just introduced its first small premium SUV, the EX30.
It is a small SUV that does big Volvo things. Let us explain to you what that means.
Design-wise, the EX30 follows Volvo’s design language that’s scaled down to a smaller size. It has a long wheelbase, large wheels and equal overhangs that bring balance to the exterior. It also features a digital rendition of Thor’s Hammer headlights, a clamshell bonnet and two-piece taillights.
How small is small? Well, at just 166.7 inches long, the Volvo EX30 is just over a foot shorter than a Honda Civic hatchback! It is, however, impressively wide at 72.3 inches (80 inches with the mirrors) and reasonably tall at 61.1 inches. Despite sharing a model name with the larger EX90 electric crossover, the EX30 looks more like a hatchback.
