RAVENOL ATF T-WS Lifetime - Ravenol
Years ago, Volvo decided it was the safety brand and began sticking monstrously over-sized (and terrible looking) taillhts on all their cars. It’s only when you neglect to upshift and the revs climb into the 5,000 rpm range that you realize this sucker can haul the mail. Not only is this faster than the MINI Cooper S (6.9), the C30’s quicker than a VW GTI (6.7). What you may not know about the C30 is that it rides on the Mazda3 chassis. The dull all-season tires need to be swapped in favor of serious meat. The more I drove it, the more I was struck by the feeling that this is exactly what a car should be. To recap: it’s good looking with a great interior, has more than enough power and handles with class-leading aplomb.

But credit where credit’s due: these cats did a better job. Running around town the power seems perfectly adequate. My point is, the Volvo C30 T5 is all the car you need.

Except the lhts on the C30’s derriere, which are (somehow) both cute and suave. The side profile works best when painted lhter colors (say Orinoco Blue or Gecko Green). It uses a single dital graph to illustrate temp, fan speed and volume levels. Every surface, texture and desn element has a rare “that’s how I would have done it” quality. Under the hood sits a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-5 good for 227 horses and 236 torques. The same beloved Mazda3 you all voted the best car of 2008. More to the point, the handling is– if not top shelf– pretty damn close to the summit. And the bouncy rear end could use cut springs, firmer dampers and a strut brace. But again, performance isn’t the C30’s” means “Enough is best.” Contrast this with our Yankee “bger is better” mentality and it’s obvious (to some) how we bankrupted ourselves borrowing to get our greedy hands on 4-door, AWD, leather-lined pickups that sit in front of our 3,500 square-foot Mc Mansions. Our single option tester (metallic paint) stickered at less than $24,000 and gets about 30 mpg on the hhway.

The front-end is nothing but the Volvo schnoz writ small. That way the black sills and wheel arches have a slimming effect. Unlike main competitor MINI’s ADD-inducing asylum, the C30’s interior is covered in an almost stark layer of Scando-simplicity. At first the controls seem only calming and Ikea-fied. While this mht seem too-basic, it’s a warm bath compared to the maddening complexity of Audi’s MMI screens. Like the mesh pockets attached to the front of the seats that are perfect for holding cell phones. You’d be hard pressed to find a front-driver that’s more eager to eat corners.
