Volvo's first new model to be fully developed according to its human-centric, Designed Around You strategy, the car is the first in the world to feature a pedestrian airbag, an innovation which helps reduce the severity of pedestrian injuries in the event of an impact.
Company car users will benefit from strong Benefit In Kind (BIK) figures, with the V40 D2 at £43 and £85 for 20% and 40% tax payers respectively.
The luxury hatchback will be available in ES, SE and SE LUX trim with Bluetooth fitted as standard across the range. Customers are able to place orders now with production starting in May. Volvo expects the first customer cars to be delivered in September.
With CO2 emissions as low as 94 g/km, the D2 version of the Volvo V40 boasts a combined fuel consumption of 78.5 mpg. Its 1.6-litre diesel engine has 115 hp and 285 Nm of torque and comes with a six-speed manual gearbox and start/stop function. This means V40 drivers will benefit from improved running costs and the lowest vehicle tax bands (starting at £0 and subsequent years' vehicle tax of £0).
The entry level ES comes with a host of features as standard, including Volvo's City Safety technology; the world's first pedestrian airbag; Bluetooth with music streaming; high performance audio with 5 inch colour display screen; Electronic Climate Control; 16 inch Matres alloy wheels; Dynamic Stability and Traction Control; power windows; leather steering wheel and gear knob; and textile floor mats.
In addition, all Volvo V40 Nav models include a fully integrated satellite navigation system with voice-activated control, a 7 inch colour display screen and DVD player. As well as full European mapping, two complimentary annual map updates are also included.Volvo reveals S90 Ambience Concept
