Volvo S40

Volvo S40

Volvo's entry-level model is incorporated in the enviable position of lacking any direct rival; no other manufacturer in Europe creates a comparable car sedan with this type of combination of enjoyment, safety and comfort.

Handling and ride of the newly-arrived car is great in all variants, and also the build values are exceptionally high, the vehicle feeling just like a true executive model despite its modest price.

Engines run from the smooth 1.8 litre four with 125PS to the excellent turbocharged five cylinders pumping out 200PS, and there's also a great - if raucous - diesel engine.

An activity variant with harder suspension and additional body detailing, and two 1.6 litre models (one petrol the other diesel) may also be along within the next few months.
