My favourite car brand of the moment is easily Volvo. I didn't realise just how cool it was until one drove past me the other day. Volvo is very now if you think about it. It's functional, it's design/engineering focused, it's got swedish roots and it's safe. The only bit that might rock the boat is that it may not immediately be considered as a green car (some might say who cares, that's its positioning!) but I care. That thought got me doing a bit of research and found this lovely car C30. Check out its minisite, it totally exceded all expectations. It's aesthetically very pleasing...particularly it's bottom.
On average it does 40mpg. It's as good as any other urban motor. In fact, I think it's rather sexy?
