The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Volvo C30 provides a stylish look and feel, but that means plenty of sacrifices inside. The 2011 MINI Cooper/Convertible runs the gamut from smart econobox to thrusty sports convertible--all with unmatched driving feel and expertly interpreted styling heritage.
