The Volvo V40 has impressive fuel economy and safety levels which helps make the stylish car a great family choice. It's among the safest cars on the road today with high comfort levels.

Opt for the V40 D4 engine and drivers will enjoy a car that produces 187 bhp and will accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 7.4 seconds. The engine also has decent torque levels which makes it suitable for towing. The D4 will return around 79 mpg and has emissions of 99g/km.

The Volvo V40 offers an interesting alternative in the mid-size family hatchback segment with high safety levels and lots of comfort. The hatchback has a solid build which makes it attractive for families looking for a safe vehicle and it was one of the first to adopt autonomous braking which is where the car brakes automatically if it detects that a crash is about to occur.
The interior is excellent; it is well-designed and made with quality materials so it's a nice place to be for long journeys. Handling on all the V40 models is good and it's an all-round sound choice.
Equipment levels are also impressive with basic trims coming with DAB radio, automatic climate control and alloy wheels along with a wide range of safety equipment which includes a pedestrian airbag that pops up from the bonnet. The Volvo V40 also comes with a variety of option packs which help improve its attractiveness to drivers as well as a range of options including an impressive panoramic roof.
