The Volvo V40 is mechanically identical to the S40 model, but has (in traditional Volvo style) been further developed into a compact estate car, offering the same comfort, safety and performance levels as the S40, but with the added flexibility obtained through an estate car body.
Like the S40, the V40 is available in a very large number of versions, adapted to the individual requirements of the customer who enjoys Volvo characteristics in a compact car.
