Heico Sportiv offers owners of the facelift Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe a new power and exterior kit.

HEICO SPORTIV has a new tuning package for the facelift Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe. The tuner believes a strong base is already in place from the stock car which has eco-friendly technologies like stop/start with a brake-energy recovery system and a fuel consumption of 3.9 litres per 100km.

"This is our basic starting point for proving that ecologically friendly action and the pleasure of driving don't need to be mutually exclusive," said HEICO SPORTIV general manager Holger Hedtke. "In doing so, aerodynamically optimised components such as the radiator grille or under-floor intentionally remain untouched."

Power and torque increase from 80kW (109 bhp) and 240Nm to 92kW (125 bhp) and 280Nm respectively. The 0 - 100km/h sprint time is quoted as 9.2 seconds. HEICO SPORTIV says theirs is 2.1 seconds quicker than the factory car. It also has a 200km/h top speed.

The car's exterior features a HEICO SPORTIV front spoiler, sport rims in 18 and 19-inch size in three colours, and a stainless steel double and quad pipe exhaust system. Other performance enhancers include a differential lock and a sports suspension lowered by 30mm.

Interior accessories include aluminium or leather-covered handbrake, door pin set and gear lever grip.
