The V40 is an interesting car. It's not the station we have come to expect from Volvo. It's neither as masculin nor as bricky as a conventional Volvo. It's design is slim, clean and as sexy as can be for a station wagon. Its seats embraces you, its stearing is solid and secure, its engine sounds confident. Netiher the sporthy whiiim, not the cheap sound of most commercial engines. Its interior is not catchy, but neither is it boring. It's functional and practical built with good material. On the road it easily glides through the trafic, easily reaches 200 km/h (even though the official max. speed is said to be 195 for the 1.8 model). Newer Focus' or Megan's ...

Our volvo V40 is comfortable, the lumber bars in the back of the seats have been great :) the ride has been smooth and comfortable. In regards to looks i have to say it is one of the best looking cars that volvo have produced, it shy's away from the more recognised boxeyness of earlier volvo's and adopts a very nice set of curves and comes in some nice color options also!! the alloy wheels are a bonus and the interior is very satisfactory, it's not to primative and not over the top either!! The cab space of the v40 is very large and comfortable with plenty of leg room for rear passengers and also the rear seats are comfortable too!! The boot space is good but ...

We were looking for a shooting brake that was fast, comfortable and looked good. We considered the Peugeot (dull and uninspiring inside), the Fiat Marea (good but too mass produced), the BMW 3 - too much money for the product - and a number of others. On quality of build, accelaration, cabin comfort and particularly looks (and who says we don't buy cars for emotional reasons?) the Volvo won. After 10,000 kilometres with it driving throuh Italy - where we live - Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic we are more than happy. It holds the road well, corners flatly and cruises happily at 140 - 160 kph. Haveen't worked out the petrol consumption but ... Read the complete review

I've just bought a Volvo V40 1.8 SE and quite frankly I'm amazed. It wasn't my first choice at all and when the tantalizing temptations of Bavaria's finest were taken out of my price range, I started looking at alternatives. As a long term Saab man, but a lack of enthusiasm towards the products currently produced by them, I moved my attentions to Volvo. Of course there was a conflict of interests, i imagine fights between my Suzuki GS500 and the V40 breaking out in the garage at night, but I am pleased to say that for just £5500 I have got a 3 year old V40 1.8 with leather, aircon, CD player and all the toys imaginable and it purrs along like a ...

My name is Brandon and I own a Volvo V40. I used to tease my friend routinely for driving an 'old man's car' but when he decided to leave Blighty for the bright lights of Oz, he offered me his V40... I've eaten my own words several times since, it is the best car I have ever owned and driven. The ride is smooth, engine powerful but easy to drive and I genuinely think it is an attractive model. I am a big fan of road trips and look forward to driving long journeys. Lucky for me that my in-laws live hundreds of miles away. The cockpit is just how I would want it, and laid out better than any other car I've been in - a silly point for some but makes the world of ... Read the complete review
