Volvo Hatchback V40

Let's go on a journey to rediscover the charm of Volvo's premium hatchback, the V40.

It is no exaggeration to say that Volvo, which pushes aside new models from other manufacturers and receives high praise from automobile critics, is proof that it is one of the world's top automakers. Hatchbacks are one of the favorite segments of cars that people like to buy, as they offer a huge boot space, interior space and an amazing look.

The Volvo V40 is positioned as a high-end, compact five-door hatchback. As a standard compact car, the V40 has a length, width, and height of 4369 mm, 1802 mm, and 1445 mm, respectively, and a wheelbase of 2647 mm. The V40 has an advantage in width and height, and the corresponding longitudinal space and headroom in the car will perform better.

The V40 combines Volvo's modern design with classic elements such as leopard eyes, shark beaks, bird wings, and water drops, which are used vividly on the V40's body, which is both dynamic and very personal. The Volvo V40 has more power than a comparable vehicle, and the powerful 213hp T5 engine gives the driver the thrill of becoming a competitor.


Volvo's latest family-style design is further reflected in the new V40. The V40 moves the daytime running lights to both sides of the lower grille, applying more advanced linear LED light-emitting technology, bringing a more technological and personalized appearance.

The side design is very simple. The raised waistline extending from the front to the rear of the car seems to be a simple treatment, but it brings a good overall sports effect, and the low windows and chrome frame decoration also make the whole car appear slenderer.

The all-new V40 at the rear of the car adopts the two-tone design commonly used in sports models, revealing the characteristics of the main sports style. In terms of exhaust pipes, the entry-level model adopts a relatively conservative hidden design, while the more powerful high-end model adopts the mainstream double-sided single-out design, which is sportier.


In terms of interior, the Volvo V40 continues the traditional, refined, and minimalist design style, especially with Volvo's signature floating center panel. It is reported that the new panel pair adopts a slimmer design, and the shape is simpler and more fashionable than before.

In terms of materials, the chrome trim on the doors, instrument panel, center display, air conditioning vents, one-button start buttons, and center console knobs has visually enhanced the sense of sophistication of the interior.

The V40 brings a new electronic instrument cluster comparable to the concept car, which is not only avant-garde and technological but also very powerful. All kinds of vehicle information are displayed at a glance through digital and graphic displays.

In terms of seats, Volvo design has always paid attention to ergonomics and a comfortable riding experience. From the V40 exhibition car seat appearance, fine craftsmanship, superior materials, and presumably good comfort and wrapping, the bottom cutout triangle active safety headrest is also quite sporty. In terms of safety, the WHIPS cervical spine protection system will naturally not be lacking, bringing more comprehensive safety protection to drivers and passengers.


The V40 has six powertrains and three gearboxes; three petrol-powered, three diesel-powered, and it is reported that a hybrid version is planned for the future.

Pedestrian airbags

The latest "pedestrian airbag" is also a safety technology highlight of the car. Compared with the previous manufacturer's safety design, which only focuses on the protective performance of the car itself, this technology pays more attention to pedestrian safety, to minimize collision damage to pedestrians. The V40's pedestrian airbag, which is hidden under the bonnet, automatically bursts to form a cushion in the event of a collision, which can reduce the damage of the pedestrian's upper body hitting the bonnet. Therefore, the bulge of the bonnet is actually to install the airbag, not only to modify the beauty of the body line.

It can detect obstacles at speeds of up to 50km/h and automatically brake, nearly doubling the original 30km/h, effectively covering most urban driving at medium and low speeds.

The automatic parking system is very practical for women, and a series of new technologies for safe driving, such as lane departure prevention systems, automatic recognition devices for traffic signs, and automatic headlight adjustment high beam systems, have been added.
