Disadvantages: Terrible fuel economy
I fell in love with the styling of this car from the moment i saw it.
It looks completely different to most cars on the road, when you drive it heads turn to check it out. The interior doesn't disappoint either. I'm very picky about how a car looks when you are sat inside it, Volvo have completely got the styling perfectly right with the C30. Everyone one who sat it the car had something good to say about it. Everything from the steering wheel to the mats look and feel like a quality product. The centre console was the deciding factor when i bought the car.
Unfortunately the car is let down by its terrible fuel economy. I bought the 1.6 r-design c30 and for a full tank of petrol the car would only manage 300 miles. I was so disappointed by this that in the end i sold the car after 3 years just because i could not stand seeing the fuel drop so quickly. I wish i had bough the diesel version because it may have then been closer to being a perfect car.
Summary: Buy the diesel version
