Spy photos showing much of the shape and design of this all-new vehicle.

Here are the latest spy shots of the upcoming 2012 Volvo V30.

These photos of the five-door V30 were taken at a distance but do reveal much of the all-new model's overall design. Front and rear fascias appear to be classic Volvo and some of the shots reveal a little of the inside also.

We know that this is going to be a very important product for the Swedish brand. Volvo is decidedly taking itself down-market to compete in the volume-brand sphere and this C-segment offering will go up against the likes of the Volkswagen Golf.

The 2012 Volvo V30 is expected to debut sometime early next year.
