Test Drive #43 - 2013 Volvo C30 Polestar
This week we took out Volvo's hot hatch, the limited edition C30 from the fine racing folks at Polestar. It is a nimble little car and fun to drive. Also, we're pretty sure the size of the gear selector has nothing to do with the fact that Volvo is now owned by the Chinese.

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.

Snowdrift: Volvo S60 Polestar (with a bit of C63 AMG). And a drag race. - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
They drive a car from Sweden to the UK to avoid the snow. And it snows in the UK. We got to play in it though, and that cool air probably made it good for at least 508hp. It's a small-volume concept for now, but we had a C63 on display to add some perspective (actually, just because it was hilarious in the snow)

Auction Report: 2011 Volvo C30 T5 R-Design Walkaround and Review
Help us grow so we can bring you more videos! Like us on Facebook @ http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline Senior Editor Christian Rosario takes us on a tour of this beautiful 2011 Volvo Hatchback with the undercover auction cam! "The 2011 Volvo C30 isn't your typical "hot hatch." Sure, it's got a powerful turbocharged engine and an available sport-tuned suspension, but this Swede is about a lot more than just speed. Don't get us wrong -- the C30 actually drives nicely and has more dynamic capabilities than most drivers will care to exploit. But with its chic interior and a classic hatchback design that evokes Volvos of yore, the C30 is also the closest thing in this segment to automotive art." (Edmunds.com)
