I use to be a SAAP 95 owner. After 10 great yrs, I was looking for another reliable and stylish car. I did consider the Acura TSX, Mini and Audi GTI. I am so glad I got the Volvo C30 instead. As a previous SAAB owner, I really like the drive of the C30 and the thoughtful European design. And, it costs less than 30K!
Excellent road handling and speed. Comfortable front seats. Super stylish. Waterfall panel display and behind the panel, there is nice storage for your pocket book so you don't have to leave it on the floor.
If I have to list one thing for improvement, I would wish the trunk space be bigger. Hey, I guess for the look, I would have to learn to pack light! :)
