    I think that's a much smarter idea than trying to compete in the luxury car segment. While Volvo makes fine cars, there is (at least for me) very little appeal in buying one when they cost as much as a midsized BMW or Mercedes.

    Agree, I test drove the V40 and found it similar drive to a Golf I once had and a recent Jetta I had as a rental. When it came down to it I got the much maligned Jaguar X type for not much more bur it performed and felt so much more high end.

    PS I thought the C30 looked good but it is too much.
