A sexy highway cruiser
By Diren Yardimli on


2001 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


The V40 is not the station we have come to expect from Volvo. It's neither as masculin nor as bricky as a conventional Volvo (which made me think twice before buying it). Yet the design is slim, clean and as sexy as can be for a station wagon. Its seats embraces you, its steering is solid and secure, its engine sounds confident. Neither the sporthy whiiim, not the cheap sound of most commercial engines. On the road it easily glides through the traffic, easily reaches 200 km/h (even though the official max. speed is 195 for the 1.8).

Best Features

As with most Volvo's its the safety aspect. Airbags, air curtains, whisplash protection are some of the aspects, but more than that it's the way it makes you drive the car that is the true secret behinds its safety. This is a car in which it is very difficult to forget focusing on the road.

Worst Features

CD player lacks shock resistance.
