Volvos typically drive like ****
I would not be surprised if this one did as well

Built on the Mazda3 platform, so I expect it to be pretty darn good in the twisties. If I remember correctly, it should be a T5, I think it is pushing 220hp stock, which is kind of low because this car suffers the same thing as the 3, it weighs close to 3000lbs.

C30

Volvo prices C30 from $22,700

Volvo announced this morning that its upcoming C30 hatchback will be priced from just $22,700 when it goes on sale in the U.S. this October. Keeping in mind that doesn't include a destination charge of $695, the pricing is clearly aggressive for this premium brand and makes the C30 Volvo's least expensive model. The base price will net you what Volvo calls a C30 Version 1.0 that comes standard with the turbocharged T5 five-cylinder producing 227 horsepower, a 160-watt stereo, 17-inch wheels, chrome exhaust tips, power windows and remote locking. Step up to the C30 Version 2.0 and you'll be paying $25,700, but will instead get a 650-watt stereo with 10 speakers and Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, 18-inch alloy wheels, a bigger roof spoiler and the handsome sport body kit . You'll also be able to "special order" a C30 with your choice of 17 exterior and 12 interior colors, as well as 30 more accessory options.

Both cars, by the way, come standard with a six-speed manual transmission. Ordering up an automatic will add $1,250. Other accessories include a navigation system for $2,120 (comes standard on Version 2.0) and Bi-Xenon gas discharge headlights for $700. Choosing any "special order" item will ding you with a one-time $300 charge, unfortunately. While the new C30 is clearly priced aggressively, the long list of optional "special order" items means that your cost out the door will rise rather quickly.

I like it! Cant wait to see the R version in the future.

Let's hope there's an R version. ;) Volvo's depreciate like crazy, I'd like to pick up one of these in the future as a daily driver IPD is going to have field day with this car.
