Volvo V40 D2 SE Nav - 2012 onwards


Volvo V40 D2 SE Nav
Bodystyle: five-door hatch
Engine: 1.6 D2 turbodiesel
Transmission: six-speed manual
Date of test: July 2012

What is it?

Let's start with what it's not. The last V40 was an estate and so was its successor, the V50, but this isn't - it's a five-door hatchback and it represents a move away from Volvo's oddly contrary product planning of the past. The D2 version of the V40 is the entry-level diesel model, equipped with a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that's destined to sell big thanks to sub-100g/km CO2 emissions and fuel consumption to shame your lawnmower.
