Volvo Volvo V40 T4 review

September 7, 2011

Everyone knows that Volvo brings some of the most sophisticated cars to the scene and that is the case with the V40, a wagon that was debuted for the company in 2000, however only lasted for four years until it will be replaced with the new series in 2005. But, the V40 is still one of the cars that people consider buying when they are wanting something that is going to give them the room that they need and be something that is safe for their entire family.

The performance aspect of the V40 is not something that is going to have people running races with, however, it was not meant for such purposes in the first place. The person will find that they are getting a 1.9 liter four cylinder that is turbo charged that puts out around 170 horsepower, which is still more than some of the smaller sportier cars are putting out today.

One of the things that made this car something that people were wanting to have in 2004 was the fact that the five speed automatic transmission had sensors in it to adjust to just how the person was driving, something that only Volvo had at the time of release in their cars. So just how does it drive for those that get the opportunity to drive this?

They are going to find that this was one car that most people loved to drive, and found that they were getting the performance of a sportier car without having to pay the high price for the car. This is one thing that the V40 had going for it and one reason why it is still one of those cars that people like to this day.

The safety features of the car were also something that people were and still are impressed with, especially the Whiplash Protection System is something that really went a long way in preventing injury as it allowed for the seats to go backwards instead of forward when hit. There is also the safety equipment in use that decreases the amount of power when the car senses that the car does not have any traction. Of course, there are the standard anti lock brakes, side curtain airbags and airbags that are also used in the car.

Those that look into the interior of the car will find that the driver and passenger would get bucket seats, while the back seat used a split rear bench seat that was able to be folded down in order to make more room in the back. The only real problem that people seemed to have found with the vehicle is the fact that the rear doors were a bit small thus they made getting in and out a bit more difficult.

However, most passengers seemed to have more than enough room for those that were riding in the car. Some standard equipment that they would find in the interior is cloth upholstery, remote keyless entry, a tilting steering wheel and of course air conditioning.

Those that were wanting to get some extra options with the car would find that they could choose to use the sixteen inch alloy wheels. Otherwise, they just has wheels that were fifteen inch. The sleek appearance of the car was basically what to be expecting with the Volvo at the time, as most of the cars had some markers about them that were similar, such as the front grille and the back end tail lights.

Today, this car would cost the person around ten to thirteen thousand, depending on the options that they got with the car and so forth. Brand new, the car would easily double in this amount.
