The most popular car in the Volvo range, the V40 delivers a refined driving experience and commendable fuel economy, as well as a superb range of safety equipment. This stylish family hatchback is available in four trim levels, from Momentum to R-Design Pro.
A striking Matte Dark Grey radiator grille adorns the V40’s front end and a sporty spoiler attracts attention to its rear fascia. Smart, lightweight and hard-wearing 16-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable and heated door mirrors, LED headlights, daytime running lights and a high-mounted LED brake light are all standard inclusions.
Inscription grades feature 17-inch alloys, while R-Design trims add colour-coordinated door mirrors and illuminated front and rear tread plates, each adorned with the ‘R Design’ logo. R-Design Pro grades boast 18-inch alloy wheels and tinted windows.
A plush five-person cabin features an adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support. Other standard features include a chrome-trimmed leather steering wheel that offers height-and-reach adjustability. A range of storage spaces include cup holders and a lockable glovebox. Eye-catching chronograph instrument dials and electronic climate control are included too.
Inscription trims add leather-faced upholstery, while R-Design grades feature a sports steering wheel and pedals. R-Design Pro trims come with sports upholstery and rear-row ‘theatre’ lighting.
