Which used Volvo C30 coupe should I buy?

Despite nine engines being on offer, only a few are worth serious consideration.

The 99bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine is acceptable, but can never be classed as fast, while the 123bhp 1.8-litre and a 143bhp 2.0-litre are swifter, but not exactly sporty. The turbocharged 2.5-litre petrol engine is full of character (it was also used in the Ford Focus ST), but is rather pointless in a car of this size.
