When the C30 three-door hatch came out, everybody praised it for its uniqueness, character and personality. With its floating dash and comfortable suspension, it was different enough from its Ford Focus brother. The T5 version with a 2.5-liter five-pot was especially well received, but it never captured a fare slice of the European market. Now though, Volvo will have more practicality, and perhaps even fresher styling in from the new V40, which is basically like the C30’s five-door big brother.
We’ve already shown you the rear end of the V40, Volvo’s new C-segment contender with five doors. But now, thanks to some magazine scans scooped by, we can show you the whole thing. It’s got a very interesting upward kink towards the back of the traditional ‘shoulder’ character lines, which exude strength and safety.

The V40 will reportedly be 4.5 meters in length and will be available with optional AWD. The engine range will be made up exclusively of four-cylinder units: a 1.4-liter and a 1.8-liter. The platform and engines will also be used for future Volvo models, namely the C40, S40 and XC40.

The Volvo V40 will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6th.

Update: Giving credit where credit is due
