Best New Small Car: Let’s face it, the styling of most small cars is as dull as dishwater. That’s not the case with the C30, which carries familiar Volvo design elements to a hot looking hatch that’s evocative of the automaker’s old P1800. With a stylish and functional interior, Volvo avoids being too cute while not looking like everything else on the road. The C30’s turbocharged, inline-five pumps out 227 horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque, and with crisp handling and capable brakes, the little Swede is a fun drive. Two versions and a long list of options mean buyers can make a C30 to their liking.
