VOLVO C30 review

NGC verdict 27.04.2010

This 4-seater sports coupe is easily my favourite 'green' car to date because it is enjoyable to drive, yet naturally economical without any effort from the driver. And gratifying improvements are possible with care.

Build quality seemed good and the C30 looks good too, well, except for those aerodynamic wheels. Pricey though.
