    Surely anyone looking at getting a 3 door A3 should at least look at one of these ?
    I quite like the looks,although I would never consider a 3 door with kids.
    Volvo are usually pretty damned good with their standard equipment too.
    Things like leather and cruise come as standard on certain models,for example.
    Their dolby stereo upgrades are the best I've ever heard too.
    Make the Bose stuff sound like one of those radios that look like a can of coke.

    They don't look bad. I saw some at MPH earlier in the year and I thought (apart from the back end) they look pretty nice.

    They reviewed it on fifth gear a few weeks ago, looks quite nice and a little different to the rest of the offerings.

    Looks nice and it was potentially on my shopping list had I been buying in the new year. The pre-production models all looked very nice, but somehow they look a bit more plain in real life. To be honest though, if I was going to get a Volvo I'd probably be going straight for the S40 anyway.

    Looks like it fell out the ugly tree hitting every branch on the way down imo.

    Mind you, what are the dealers like?

    It didn't do too well in the What Car group test either.

    Came in 3rd behind the A3 in 2nd, and Golf in 1st. (Astra last).
