V40 vs. Passat
By jseattle on
Vehicle2003 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewWe 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
