Volvo don’t really do things by halves. When they set a goal they tend to achieve it to very high standards. They are leaders in safety on the road and various models such as the XC90 lead their class overall. The Swedish company now plan to take on the Germans in a market that will be hard to break.
This is the Volvo V40 and it shall enter the premium hatchback market later this year. It certainly looks the part with clean swooping lines and a clear elegant stance. Seating five in comfort, the V40 is squarely aimed at the likes of BMW’s 1 Series and Audi’s A3. The Volvo features a rather interesting 2/3 glass roof that provides high levels of natural light in the cabin.
