Early Thoughts: 2013 Volvo V40

The 2013 Volvo V40 is a beautiful car!!! This car will compete against the Audi A3 and other entry level luxury  vehicles from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Infiniti. The car will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

In Europe the V40 will have the option of a 1.6L turbo-diesel inline-four producing 115 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque or a turbocharged 2.5L I-5 producing 254 horsepower. Other engine choices include a 1.6L turbo inline-four, and a 2.0L turbocharged diesel. The V40 will also be equipped with Volvo's brake energy regeneration and an engine start/stop system. The City Safety system and Pedestrian Safety function will also be options.

The Volvo V40 should hit European showrooms this summer. It has been said that this vehicle will not make it's way to the United States. But I hope that is not true. Volvo would be a CRAZY not to bring this car over here. I feel that Volvo needs more models in their lineup and this would be a great addition. I have to say that Volvo has outdone itself again with their designs.

Check back for more details when the Volvo V40 is unveiled.
