    Volvo C30 For Life — R design so cool have 1.6D very frugal on long journeys. So comfortable and quiet. Boot small obviously as its a coupe, plenty of kit and fun to drive as it has lowered suspension. Not a popular car so thats why I bought it. Get plenty of looks

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Style and road sense

    Cons: turning circle poor due to safety equipment

    Bachelor / No Kids Car — Great overall car if you're single or a couple with no kids. nice space in the back if you fold down seat also, if not too tall plenty of room for back to seats. I also dig the usb port in the armrest and out of the way, have my flash drive installed and just blasting the music away.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I've driven her for a few days now. Love the power from the torque, first car I've owned where I can really experience it. Love the bluetooth and sunroof, and love the sound system.

    Cons: Breaks are a bit aggressive, also when driving with the windows down a loud whistling occurs from passing towards the back seat, no automatic door unlock when put into park. may sound trivial but after having that in my past 3 cars including the 05 Yukon its an amenity that is surely missed.

    In A Sea Of 2 Door Coupes The C30 R-design Does Stick Out. — I purchased this car almost on the unique looks alone. Both the interior and exterior set it apart from other sub $30k coupes. The R-Design package made this car for me. I would not have probably been attracted to it otherwise. The additional styling, the blue accents, and wheels all made it appeal to me. Aside from the R-Design specifics, the waterfall center console is very unique and added to its appeal. The rear hatch has an angle that limits the cargo load by quite a bit more than you expect until you really need the space. Plus if you don't tint the windows you can really see everything in the rear hatch compartment. Performance was quick and zippy and handling over train tracks and such was surprisingly good. Unfortunately an 18-wheeler changed lanes into it, so I sold it after the repair work was done. This was when it was less than a year old and less than 9,000 miles. It was good timing because my 10 y/o son starting complaining at the lack of room in the rear seat. Flash forward to 2013, I would likely purchase a used certified BMW or Audi coupe over this.

    Pros: Both interior and exterior styling

    Cons: Backseat room, angle of rear hatch limits cargo
