A Couple New Zealand Reviewers Pit the 335i against a Volvo C70

The Volvo reviewer feels the C70 is enough car for him and for most people. He is probably right. The C70 is a nice car but it doesn't match the sophisticated driving dynamics of the 335i.

What's interesting is the comparison of "the boots" (trunks) of the two vehicles. I thought BMW's was bad, the Volvo requires the top to be lifted back up to get underneath the space below the folded top. At least Volvo has a button that's easily accessible in the trunk to make this simple, but still it shows an interesting difference I had not seen in other reviews of the Volvo C70.

Not a lot new here, but an interesting perspective on two competitors in the hardtop convertible market.
