Great Driving Experience
In evaluating a car, first you define the mission. No car can be all things. If you want a Corvette, you understand that it can't have the gas mileage of a Prius. This is the T5 C30 with 17 in wheels: A small, nimble car with an appealing and distinctive aesthetic that coddles the driver with excellent ride dynamics and great interior design. It is not trying to be a track car. It is 2+2 GT road car. It gets you through your driving day with a minimum of fatigue and a maximum of bliss. It has the quickness and agility to squeeze through traffic, yet still has a cabin that is quiet and comfortable. Plus, it feels like quality, it is nice to look at, and it is just fun to drive.
Forget Mini check out Volvo
I thought I loved my 2007 Mini S convertible, but 2 weeks after warranty ran out I had to pay $500 on maintenance after I had just spent a $1000 replacing my run flat tires, I decided to get out before I spent well more than that car was worth...I am so glad that I did. My 2011 C30 is refreshing and my passengers love the upgrade. It is the perfect car for me. I am in my early 30's married with no children, so I rarely have back seat passengers (a must for this car). This car so sophisticated with out being boring or stuffy. Fun, fast and fabulous, I don't understand why more people aren't in love... that's okay because I love having a car that makes a statement the individual.
Great Car!
Have had my 2011 Volvo C30 for a little over a month now and overall, really love the car. The styling is amazing, handling great, seats the most comfortable I've ever sat in (heated seats a huge bonus) and great fun to drive. Other high points are bluetooth which works amazingly well, iPod integration, and great visibility. Only drawbacks (and minor at best), huge, oversized key, so-so mileage and difficulty accessing rear seat. All that said, I would recommend the C30 to everyone.
More About This Model

Orange isn't an easy color to pull off -- just ask carrots, Doritos and people with bad spray tans. This fact alone makes our 2011 Volvo C30 test car quite remarkable. The handsome hatch turned heads and garnered compliments from our editors and complete strangers alike during its time with us -- Orange Flame Metallic paint job be damned.

There's ample substance behind the C30's Euro-chic style. Volvo's turbocharged five-cylinder engine provides enough pep to keep the journey fun, and handling is reasonably sharp and responsive. The C30 isn't as sporty as the hot hatches it's frequently shopped against, but it compensates by offering impeccable refinement. More "premium hatch" than "hot hatch," this upscale, well-mannered Volvo will never make you regret choosing it as a daily driver.

The C30's rivals are as different as apples and oranges. The Subaru Impreza WRX is the racehorse of the group, offering performance-tuned reflexes and blisteringly quick acceleration. With its retro-cute styling and vast array of customization options, the Mini Cooper is the pick for those who like their fun-to-drive hatch in an unabashedly adorable, uniquely tailored package.

Perhaps the most direct competitor to the 2011 Volvo C30 is the Volkswagen GTI, which offers comparable levels of refinement and sophistication. In the end, though, the VW looks decidedly less distinctive than the suave, continental Volvo. Buyers in search of a sporty hatch that's as easy to live with as it is to look at will find the C30 to be a cut above the rest.
