Like I said in a previous article, this is a comparison that is going to go on forever. But this time, has changed it up a bit by adding the Opel Saturn Astra to the mix with the Volvo C30 and MINI Cooper S.

>So you want something small and relatively fuel-efficient, but it also has to be stylish and fun to drive. If that’s you, then a hatchback is a good choice. Here, two new ones – the Saturn Astra and Volvo C30 – square off against the car that jolted the segment when it was reintroduced for 2002: the Mini.

It’s a great comparison with MINI getting the nod on most of the categories and the win (which we all already knew). Still interesting to see the Astra in the mix.
