The Geneva Auto Show in early March will see the arrival of the all-new Volvo V40 for Europe’s premium hatchback sector, which combines elements from larger Volvos wrapped in a compact package. The all-new Volvo V40 is described as a modern, expressive car with a Scandinavian luxury look and feel.

The new graphic instrument cluster with personalized layout and information enhances the intuitive and uncomplicated driver experience.

The engine range spans everything from a diesel with CO2 emissions of just 94g/km to the turbocharged T5 engine with 254hp and 0-62mph acceleration in 6.7sec. All engine versions will feature start-stop and braking energy regeneration, whether fitted with a manual or automatic transmission.

As you’d expect, the Volvo V40 features a class-leading safety package, including Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake and several other new features such as the world-first pedestrian airbag, Lane Keeping Aid with haptic auto steering, and a Park Assist Pilot that makes parallel parking easy.

The City Safety low-speed collision avoidance system has been further developed and it now operates at speeds up to 31mph (currently 19mph on other models).

The car will be built in Ghent, Belgium and Volvo expects to sell 90,000 units per year, with 85 percent going to European customers. However, a US representative indicated there were no plans at present to bring the V40 to North America.
