Mercedes-Benz C350 Coupe vs. Volvo C30 T5 'Polestar Conversion'

They may be unlikely competitors, but that doesn't mean this isn't an interesting battle. The Mercedes-Benz C350 Coupe and the Volvo C30 T5 R-Design are the sportiest models available from their respective manufacturers (Monster AMG models not withstanding of course), but they both err on the side of sophistication, and studiously avoid, the boy racer tag. They are stylish, elegant and in the case of the Mercedes-Benz Coupe, downright expensive. The Volvo C30 T5 less so, taking into account its advancing age, but still factoring in its newly available 'Polestar Conversion' that Boosts power up to 184kW & 370Nm. We like the Volvo C30, always have, and that's why we're sitting it such a stiff challenge; putting it up against the rear wheel drive Mercedes-Benz with 224kW & 370Nm. The C350 Coupe also sports some clever new suspension technology called 'agility control,' that increases the damping pressure based on your driving to keep it level and true at any speed, in any corner. Yes, we know the Mercedes-Benz is twice the price of the Volvo, but hopefully the modified C30 T5 'Polestar Conversion' can upset the outcome... Last one up the hill is a rotten egg.

2012 Volvo C30 Polestar Performance Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volvo/c30/2012/ The 2012 Volvo C30 coupe is a lot of fun to drive. Volvo is known for being one of the world's safest car manufacturer. Most of their line-up consists of sedans and crossover utility vehicles and the C30 is the only coupe in their line-up of vehicles. The 2012 Volvo C30 has a base price of $24,950 with the top of the line R-Design Platinum costing $31,850. But you can add a factory performance upgrade called the Polestar package for under $2000 that will Boost performance significantly. Volvo did not hold back when it came to powering the C30. Under the hood live a turbocharged 2.5 liter inline 5-cylinder engine that makes 227 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. of torque. Transmission options are a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. Fuel economy is pretty good for a high performance engine as the 2012 Volvo C30 nets 21 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. The vehicle featured in this car review video has the $1295 Polestar Performance Package equipped. This package is essential an engine tuner software that adds 23 HP and 37 lb-ft. of torque without sacrificing fuel economy. Also the Polestar Package will not void the factory warranty. From a styling stand-point the 2012 Volvo C30 really stands apart from the crowd. This coupe appeals to a broad range of car buyers: men and women both young and old. When you opt for the 6-speed manual transmission the fun factor really goes through the roof. On the inside the interior has a very simple Scandinavian look and feel to it. You can even opt for a 650 watt premium sound system. The Volvo C30 is packed with tons of safety features like Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control, and a Whiplash Protection System. In fact the 2012 Volvo C30 was named a Top Safety Pick for 2012 by the IIHS. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel

2013 Audi S4 AWD vs 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design! - Head 2 Head Ep. 34
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman pits the 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design against returning contender, the 2013 Audi S4. Before hitting the road, the engine placements of both competing sedans are compared against segment contemporaries such the Cadillac ATS & BMW's 335i. Why? Because while both competitors are AWD, they start life as FWD. As a result, both vehicles have unusual engine placements. A mix of limit testing & canyon carving follows as Jonny provides insight on both cars, examining everything from driving impressions to interior ergonomics. Does Volvo's beefed up S60 have what it takes to dethrone Audi's "sleeper sedan?"

And one of the most technology ladened cars is the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C350 which comes with Attention Assist, Blind spot Assist and Lane Keep Assist.
