Im there on the Sunday, although a couple of hours from where I live, its a lot sooner than other dealers who are closer. If I decide the car is not for me, for whatever reason, it gives me more time to look at alternatives, hopefully it will be ok.

Went yesterday to Brent Cross in London. Was surprised to learn the car they had was the only one in the country that is being toured to round the country. I drive an XC40 so was keen to feel just how much smaller it was than the XC. Found the boot noticeably smaller but not too much of an issue really. Sadly the back seat couldn’t accommodate 3 people anywhere near as comfortably as the XC accommodates 3 in the back. (Grown adults). The car was pre production so not all the known facilities were available for demo. Entertainment system was not fully functioning. The frunk couldn’t be accessed either. The sales person confirmed that it would be January before vehicles would be available for test driving, with first deliveries expected about March for those orders currently being placed. I was impressed by the car’s looks in the flesh, as attractive as the promo ads make it look.
I was impressed overall but I’m not sure it will work for me just down to the rear seating.

Welcome to this forum. Thanks for the update.

Could you please elaborate on what was the rear seat issue?

I was expecting width to be good based on the fact that the EX30 is wider than all other cars in its size class:

The small boot is a known issue - somewhat perplexing but then being RWD is probably the contributing factor. Note it's about a quarter smaller than most cars in the table.

Hi all, I attended the roadshow at TMS in Coventry today and had a few observations to share.

When you book an appointment to view don’t expect to have an hour pouring over the car on your own. I would say that there was 20-30 other people there when I attended. Not sure if all booked on or gatecrashers but if you haven’t booked a time slot I’d visit anyway if your near to a dealer that has the car.

The car is a pre-production and certain trim and fittings could be better and there’s no access to under the bonnet plus limited access on the central touch screen. There is a demo screen for you to play on that looks good and is representative of the finished product.

The EX30 as you are all probably aware is not a big car! I would say to give you an idea it’s about the same size as a Golf and luggage space and rear leg room is limited. I was expecting that but it was interesting to hear how many other people attending thought that size may be an issue.

I think that the birds-eye parking system is a must have as over the shoulder view is very limited. The 20” alloys are set outside the tyre with no rubber at all to protect the rims, a kerb magnet in the making and the alloy repair people will be rubbing their hands together!

The trims and colour swatches do give a good idea of what you can expect and I think the model on display looks great in the launch colours.

If you haven’t already ordered TMS claimed to have received 26 orders over the day I went and they expect all the dealers who are part of the tour to get the same. If your waiting in the North West for the Ryebrook viewing that’s a lot of orders ahead of you in the system.

Overall I was pleased with the overall view and will keep my order in until the test demos arrive in the new year. I don’t think Volvo will have any issues shifting the model and the waiting list will only go up!
