i know that volvo uses high density steel in a couple places...not sure if other C1 cars do as well, but this might be another source of weight.

But yah, i have no doubt tha the other c1 cars are a bit lighter, but how much weight differential can there be???

Heavier engine than the duratec, bout a hundred pounds

Extra crash structures: 100-200 pounds

I can't really think of anything else to account for. I mean, even v8 ford boys make fun of the cobra's weight, but this is ludicrous compared to that.

Yeah, but don't forget the EVO and WRX weigh 3200+, so it's not a big deal. The whole frame of reference of a "sport compact car" is changing.

I remember when I had my Mustang Coupe that weighed 3150, and all the sport compact guys used to criticize it for being a big heavy pig.

There's no such thing as high density steel. You're thinking high *strength* steel. It's the same density as regular steel.

Most of the weight probably comes from Volvo's luxury features. Power seats, etc...

the goal Of SHSS and other higher strength grades of steel is to save weight.
