The Volvo V40

Choose your companion

No ordinary hatch

The V40 is everything you expect from Volvo in a package perfectly suited to life in the city and beyond. Simply choose your individual expression, whether it’s the sporty R-Design, exclusive Inscription, or luxurious Momentum.

Distinctive design


Not only is the V40 shaped to stand out from the hatchback crowd in a subtle and sophisticated way, it includes finely executed details such as the distinguishing black-glass tailgate panel and our new-generation, signature ‘Thor’ LED headlights.

Volvo V40 Hatchback Momentum
Urban style

Momentum’s modern Scandinavian design experience brings a distinctive road presence with features such as the striking Black/Diamond Cut alloy wheels and T-shaped LED headlights, while the interior ambience is complemented by contemporary, high-quality materials.

Easy parking

Park Assist Pilot is like having someone park your car for you. It tells you if a parallel parking spot is the right size for your V40 and then takes over the steering to slot it in. If you want to park yourself, the Park Assist Camera and front/rear sensors allow you to manoeuvre with confidence.

Volvo V40 Hatchback Momentum
Vision 2020

Our preventive and protective technologies such as City Safety autonomous braking are designed to help us achieve our goal that, by 2020, nobody should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo. And because we consider other road users, too, there’s our world-first Pedestrian Airbag.

Home away from home

The R-Design is your most dynamic V40 – in the way it looks and the way it drives. It’s where sporty design meets increased power and thrilling handling.

Volvo V40 Hatchback R-Design
Sport chassis

Because driving is at the heart of R-Design, the lowered sport suspension has been tuned for sharper handling and steering response. Strut braces further stiffen the chassis to reduce body roll through corners.

Drive-E power

The R-Design’s T5 engine epitomises the spontaneous response of our petrol powertrains, using advanced turbocharging to pack a powerful, 180kW punch.

Stylish wheels

The 18-inch Ixion IV Matt Black/Diamond Cut alloy wheels give your V40 R-Design a superior road presence that puts it in a class of its own.

Urban style

Cross Country

Welcome to a modern Scandinavian design experience that brings a distinctive road presence with features such as 17-inch alloy wheels and T-shaped LED headlights, and an interior ambience complemented by contemporary materials and technology.

Volvo V40 Cross Country Momentum
Commanding view

We raised the Cross Country’s ride height, which gives you a more commanding view of the way ahead – which is useful both in town and when you’re in the countryside.

The all-wheel-drive T4 Momentum features Hill Descent Control, which allows the Cross Country to tackle downhill gradients by taking over acceleration and braking. This keeps the speed to a minimum and avoids the car sliding, while Hill Start Assist makes moving off on hills easy and safe.

Rugged yet elegant

We covered vulnerable areas with a durable black bodykit to protect them from stone chips. Add gorgeous styling touches such as the Cross Country grille and the front skid plate and side scuff plates, and you have the best of contemporary Scandinavian design – just with added attitude.
