The C30 is far from unimaginative - look at the back end and profile!!!!!!!! It's four thousand times more imaginative than the Golf or Focus!!!!!!!
It isn't really cramped, either - the two seats in the back are better than those in the MINI anyway!!!
I love it, and is my second favourite car in its class after the Civic. The Nissan Qashqai comes a close third.
This car is fantastic! I got the base model 1.6 S, and I got it at six months old to 'cost-cut' a bit.
It's my first car, and it's so good I don't see myself changing it in a good five years at least - possibly more. It copes very well with my 40 miles a day to and from my college, it has never let me down, the interior fixtures and fittings are great, and surprisingly I've been able to get 45mpg from it, and I don't drive slowly!
So overall, it's brilliant, apart from the cost (it's a little expensive), and the boot is a little small. However, that doesn't matter to me at all - I could carry 10 rucksacks! I test-drove the Seat Leon, the VW Golf, and the Mazda 3, but this was the obvious choice.
This car is funky, stylish, small, safe, heavy, quick, has a phenominal stereo, superb handling and the interior is like a Swedish millionaire's city apartment.
Against it, it's far too heavy to go round corners at pace, and far too expensive to see other C30s on the road.
Overall, I love it (I still feel protective and loving when I see it first thing in the morning), but still think it could be priced £1500 lower across the range.

My late 2010 1.6 CRDI has covered 43,000 miles in just over 18 months. The good. So far the car seems totally reliable. The interior still looks…
I just traded in my beloved 56 plate ST2 and I regret it. All I can say is buy one, the car is fantastic with the best thing being the noise the…
