Volvo C30

Volvo looked to its heritage when it came to developing the C30 - which was the first Volvo hatchback since 1997. The standout design feature was the glass tailgate, inspired by the Volvo 1800ES and the later 480.

Unfortunately, like its predecessors, it was a slight case of form over function with the C30 looking great but being far from practical or user-friendly - an ugly and awkward boot cover was not a highlight, nor was the fact it was a three-door only. But as a fresh alternative to the usual Audi A3 and the like, the C30 proved quite popular.

What about the Jaguar X type 2.5 Auto all wheel drive?
Great to drive surely a future classic.

I'd put the Citroen C6 alongside the Vel Satis - same idea, different flavour
