The Volvo brand has always been equated with safety. That's still true today, despite the fact that top-notch crash test scores have become as common as cupholders in all manner of cars today.

Realizing that safety alone won't sell anymore, Volvo's added some real style. Today's Volvos exude security through broad shoulders rather than a straight-line boxy shape. There's also a much bigger emphasis on driving enjoyment.

Volvo's latest effort in style is the C30, a two-door compact car. You can think of it either as a mini Volvo or as a Swedish Mini. Either way, it's the easiest Volvo to get into, and it's a pretty cool place to be.
