This car is fantasic. I have the 5 cylinder 2.4i and I love it! It has more than enough power to speed my car up to equal that of anyother car on the road. I live in the north and it does wonderfully in the snow. Being a Volvo it is extremely reliable, and it perfect for the new driver in our family. It is my 16 year old's car and we feel very secure with him driving this car around. The car just has that safe feel about it: the doors are thick and heavy, there are numorius airbags and rides very smoothly. Interior is beautiful, the car is fully loaded and the sterio is louder than anyone could stand to hear. I believe this is the new luxury car.
Seats are very comfortable. Car is small and handles wonderfully. Audio system is fantastic. Interior styling is outstanding. Fast and Fun.
Only one very small improvement, one of our other cars is a Mercedes and I have grown very used to the smoothness of that. I wish the S40's transmisson were just a tiny bit smoother.
