Volvo V40 review


It seems like the season of new launches has started in India with the introduction of the all new Volvo V40 hatchback in the country. This is an entry level luxury hatchback from the Swedish auto giant, which is available in a diesel engine option only. It is nothing but a stripped down version of the popular V40 Cross Country model as it ditches rugged exterior cosmetics like side cladding, a pair of roof rails and skid plates. At the same time, its ground clearance too is reduces for a supple drive experience. Its front bumper is in body color featuring a sleek air intake section for a decent appearance. However, the D3 R-Design trim differentiates itself with its exclusive aspects like blacked-out grille, specially crafted alloy wheels, a new paint shade and panoramic glass roof. Coming to the insides, this vehicle gets a premium interior design borrowed from its bigger sibling. It flaunts a two-tone color scheme that is highlighted by extensive metallic accents. However, the top end version gets a tailor-made R-Design package that renders it an ultra-modern look. Not just its interior design, but most of the features too have been borrowed from the cross country model. Currently, this vehicle is being brought to India through CBU route, which makes it hard for it to be a tough contender against the likes of Mercedes-Benz A-Class and BMW 1 Series.

In terms of specifications, it borrows the same D3 diesel engine from the Cross Country version. Which means, it carries a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine under the hood. This is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission gearbox as standard and is a front-wheel-drive. This vehicle has a range of innovative features including a fully digital instrument cluster, an automatic climate control unit and an advanced infotainment system. It has a commanding driver's position with better viewing angles and an ergonomically structured central console. Like any other company's model, this hatchback too has the most advanced safety and security features to protect its occupants. These include laser assisted automatic braking system, multiple airbags, ABS and several other traction control programs.

Volvo V40 Exterior


This newly launched hatchback inherits the aerodynamic silhouette of the company, which makes it look stunning from all round. It borrows the body structure and chassis along with several exterior cosmetics of the luxury Cross Country, but misses out in terms of rugged features. This hatch has a dual tone rear bumper, while its front one is in body color. There is a small air intake section on the front bumper accompanied by LED DRLs. The radiator grille has a thin chrome surround and is complimented by a company emblem positioned in the center. Another attractive aspect is the headlight cluster with projector lamps along with black accents, which adds to its bold appeal. Not to forget that the expressive slanting forward bonnet is another aspect that emphasizes its aerodynamic stance. On the other hand, the R-Design trim gets a fixed panoramic sunroof as standard. At the same time, there are metallic accents on the A pillars, which can be seen from the frontage. This hatchback has a stylish side facet owing to its low stance and bigger fenders. This exclusive trim also gets a special set of alloy wheels as part of R-Design package. While the door handles along with ORVM caps have been painted in body color. However, the top end version gets the outside mirrors in a glossy non-body color that emphasizes its exclusivity. This vehicle has a unique rear facet thanks to the glossy black finishing on its tailgate embedded with 'VOLVO' lettering. Enhancing this swanky stance is the taillight cluster that has an attractive lighting pattern featuring LEDs.

Exterior Measurements:

This luxury hatchback has a total length measuring at 4369mm and a width stretching about 1857mm (excluding the outside mirrors). Its overall height stands at 1420mm, which is quite low. This vehicle has a very long wheelbase of 2647mm.

Volvo V40 Interior


The manufacturer has introduced this vehicle in two variants among which, the top end trim gets a black colored interior. It is further complimented by the contrast top-stitching given to the leather upholstery. At the same time, it also gets brushed metallic accents all-over that distinguishes it from other luxury models. Its dashboard comprises of a digital instrument cluster along with a infotainment system and several control switches. The seating is very comfortable, thanks to its ergonomic design accompanied by side bolsters. The floor console in the cockpit houses a gearbox along with a storage unit. The space inside the vehicle is lavish and is good enough to host five occupants.

Interior Comfort:

The best of comfort features are offered in this vehicle, which makes the drive quite enjoyable. Starting with its ergonomically designed seats, they are integrated with headrests and provide enhanced support. The height and angle of its front seats can be adjusted, which also help in giving proper under-thigh support. The heating function additionally makes its passengers feel warm, when driving in freezing temperatures. On the other hand, the split folding function for its rear seat, aids to bring in more luggage inside. It is bestowed with climate control, while the dust and pollen filter assists in purifying the cabin air. An adaptive TFT instrumentation is another aspect, whose color changes based on different driving modes. In particular, the availability of a panoramic sunroof made of dark tinted laminated glass, is a plus point. It not only gives a thrilling feel, but also protects from UV radiation. It has power adjustable door mirrors, which are heated as well. To further add to the convenience, it includes both front and rear power windows, which can be easily lowered or raised just at the press of a button. An advanced music system is also offered, which supports Bluetooth connectivity and has a touchscreen display. In addition to all these, it also includes cruise control function, rain sensing wipers, sliding armrest, sun visors equipped with illuminated vanity mirrors, reverse camera, heated windscreen, automatically dimmed inside mirror, and a few others that adds to the comfort quotient.

Interior Measurements:

This stunning hatch ensures a plenty of cabin space to its passengers considering its interior dimensions. The head and shoulder room is quite good, while the leg space is also quite sufficient. A good amount of luggage can be stored inside and by folding its rear seat, the boot compartment can be further increased. Whereas, a 60-litre fuel tank incorporated in it, is ample for planning long drives.

Volvo V40 Gear

Ed's take: The 150bhp makes the Volvo V40 a quick hatchback. The torque produced at the low end adds more punch to it.


Both the variants, which is equipped with a diesel engine are mated to a six speed geartronic automatic transmission gearbox. This helps it to achieve a top speed of 200 Kmph and can accelerate from 0 to 100 Kmph mark in mere 9.3 seconds.

This model is available in two variants both of which, carry the 2.0-litre diesel mill. It is coupled with a six speed automatic transmission gear box, which delivers power to its front wheels. This power train comes with a total displacement capacity of 1984cc. It carries 5-cylinders, twenty valves and gives a healthy fuel economy. This motor can generate 150bhp peak power and yields torque output of 350Nm between 1500 and 2750rpm.

Volvo V40 Mileage


Ed's take: The V40 returns a fuel economy of about 16km/l as per the ARAI cycle. In real world, it should return about 11-12km/l.

This vehicle features an engine start/stop technology helping it to deliver a maximum mileage of 23.25 Kmpl, which is rather impressive considering its size and stature.

Power of Volvo V40

Braking & Handling

Ed's take: The handling of Volvos has always been good and the V40 is no different. The suspension set-up is also well tweaked for good ride and handling.


The automaker has equipped an electric power assisted steering system, which aids in easy handling. It effectively gives response to the commands and makes its maneuverability an easy task for the driver. In terms of braking, both its front and rear wheels are equipped with a robust set of disc brakes. Moreover, the anti-lock braking system also assists in boosting this mechanism. It is incorporated with a proficient suspension system that assists in keeping it under control and in maintaining stability throughout. Its front axle is assembled with a McPherson spring strut, whereas the rear one is affixed with an advanced multi-link type of system.

Safety & Security

Ed's take: Volvo vehicles are one of the most safest vehicles and the V40 is no different. It also gets auto-stop even when the vehicle is moving at a speed of 50km/hr to avoid any collisions and EuroNCAP has rated it to be the most safest car that is ever tested by this organisation.

This hatchback has countless safety aspects that maximizes protection levels of its passengers. Its frontal structure is designed in a way that it absorbs the impact and reduces effects on driver and other occupants. Safety belts are offered along with pre-tensioners and load limiters, while it has dual stage front airbags along with side and curtain airbags.

Moreover, it has energy absorbing interiors wherein, all the door sides and panels come padded with tough materials that absorb energy and minimizes risk of injury to a great extent. Meanwhile, the anti-submarining protection system ensures its passengers stay safe from sliding under and out of their safety belts in case of an impact.

These include emergency brake lights, reinforced passenger compartment, laser assisted automatic braking, ABS, intelligent driver information system, seat belt reminder, emergency brake assist, restraint technologies, collapsible steering column, private locking and driver support package as well.
