Volvo V40 2016

The 2016 Volvo V40 range of configurations is currently priced from $19,977. Our most recent review of the 2016 Volvo V40 resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Alistair Kennedy had this to say at the time: Around 80 per cent of all sales in the Australian small premium new car segment are shared between the big three German brands. Volvo gets a meagre 8 per cent with the V40 which is surprising because, in our view, it’s the most attractive car in the field, is packed with safety equipment and is great fund to drive. We’d highly recommend taking one for a test drive before making a final decision.

This is what Alistair Kennedy liked most about this particular version of the Volvo V40: Packed with safety features., Great styling., Fun to drive.

The 2016 Volvo V40 carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.
