I remember when I was a kid and my dad used to take me to DisneyLand in the boxy car he owned, he always praised it for the safety features it had. "You can't die in one of these, Mary," he told me every once in a while. Years later, I found that the car he was talking about was actually a Volvo so the C30 just brings back nice memories. I want to thank you guys for this great moment...
I guess it's obvious that I really like this car, albeit I think that 145 horsepower is a bit too much for me. But the exterior design is gorgeous, I rarely see a car with these sexy lines. And the rear side... just awesome! Too bad the rear seats are so space-limited, I'd love to go out with some of my friends every once in a while, but it seems impossible with such a car.
I like the interior though, the orange contours are great. Although I must admit I would prefer them pink... But the exterior color is very eye-catching and it seems to change its hue under the sun's light.
But the thing that makes the C30 one of the coolest car I've ever seen is the safety section. My dad was right, you can't die in such a car. Unless you're insane of course and press the throttle pedal with the eyes closed. Airbags all over inside the car, all kind of techy gadgets and last-generation safety systems are all making me feel like Xena the warrior princess.
There's one bad thing, however. I can't get used to the transmission at all so I don't really understand why on Earth you'd choose a manual tranny instead of an automatic one?
