A breath of fresh air on the road

ReviewPicked up my C30 after my 2007 S40 was totaled by a drunk driver (luckily I wasn't). The cars styling is so unique and the T5 engine smooth as can be (much smoother and more responsive than the 2.4i in the S40). It's a shame that the fuel efficiency isn't as good as what one might hope, but it is still acceptable considering the performance and overall package. Another negative for some might be the small and rather high opening of the hatch. The C30 is more of a looker hatch than one you would want to haul stuff around in. Just keep that in mind and you won't be disappointed.
Best FeaturesIncredibly supportive seats and powerful, responsive engine. Very precise steering as well. Killer looks that are fresh and unique amidst all of the clones.
Worst FeaturesThere is no excuse for a $30K car not to have a trip computer. The way options must be added is mind numbing with virtually no package options available. Pick up a car off the lot and you are left to compromise with not having all the options you want. Order one and you are left with a wait.
