The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Volvo C30 still has a stunning design, inside and out, but its performance and practicality can easily be beat. The 2013 MINI Cooper models are small-car standouts in style and driving fun, and with several body styles and three different levels of performance you can pick your level of potency and practicality.
