Vehicle

2003 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

We purcahsed the V40 over the Passat for three reasons: 1) no turbo lag in the V40 compared with noticable lag and kick in the Passat; 2) better exterior styling in the wagon configuration; and 3) better interior trim finishes-dash and leather feel. The engine feels like a V6 and is w/o noticible turbo lag and accleration wheel pull on the front wheel drive. Both we felt could have been better on the Passat we test drove.

Favorite Features

Engine, styling and fine grade of leather.

Suggested Improvements

Radio controls are not intuitive.
