Volvo have come an extremely long way way since the days of the 'boxy' 240 and 740. Their recent sporty and more streamlined looks have been bestowed across the series and certainly this V40 D2 is no exception.The V40 can trace its looks back to the 480, when Volvo were daring enough to depart from their normal 'tank' persona to a fairly radical chiseled look. Through the proceeding decades, and after a complete re-think of the Swedish brand's exterior design, the 480 went through a couple of design changes, with new designations, until the reborn iteration which is the V40. Notwithstanding Volvo's industry-leading safety design and build ethic, where their drawing board begins with passenger safety and the V40 is absolutely no exception. Along with clever technology which keeps you as safe as possible in many vehicular incidents, the V40's interior is sleek and beautifully minimalistic. Along with the the new look and safety features, this ES D2 specification has an estimated - and whopping - 83 mpg (yes, you read that right). Other features include: 3x3 point rear seat belts, ABS, alarm, alloy wheels, audio remote, body coloured bumpers, CD radio, climate control, driver, passenger and side airbags, electric mirrors, folding rear seats, front electric windows, heated mirrors, height adjustable drivers seat, isofix child seat anchor points, power steering, rear electric windows, remote locking, service indicator, steering wheel rake adjustment, steering wheel reach adjustment, traction control, engine start/stop button, steering wheel controls.
