Volvo V40The clean-cut Volvo V40 offers the kind of responsive driving that makes it the envy of its competitors. Essex Volvo is proud to offer the fine-tuned new model, as well as the full Volvo range, at its Essex-based showrooms.

A sporty but refined five-door hatchback, the V40 is one of the smallest vehicles in the Volvo range. Its compact frame allows crisp, agile handling, and makes finding larger parking spaces a problem of the past. Motorists can opt for a panoramic glass roof, to give the V40 an even more exclusive appearance.

Inside, you can enjoy an interactive dashboard. Choose between three driving set ups:, elegance, eco and performance, to distribute torque in a way that complements your own unique style. The V40 features an optional Park Assist Pilot, and Adaptive Cruise Control alters your speed to reflect that of the car in front, offering a more relaxing drive.

Performance is where the V40 really excels, and each of the three petrol and four diesel engines is fitted with cutting-edge technology to enhance efficiency. For speed-thirsty motorists the T5 petrol engine uses five-cylinders to achieve 254bhp output, with a rapid 0-60mph acceleration time of just under 6.1 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 155mph, making the V40 one of the fastest in the hatch class. For extra efficiency the D2 diesel unit is hard to beat – it offers combined consumption at an astonishing 78.5 MPG. At 94g/km, CO2 emissions are also impressive, and amongst the best in the Volvo range.

Any high-performance car should have a safety record to match, and the Volvo V40 is packed with gadgets that spring into action in times of need. City Safety takes much of the risk out of urban driving, whilst Dynamic Stability and Traction Control allow you to move smoothly and securely across less well-kept roads. The car is also packed with airbags so, in the event that a collision does occur, occupant safety is optimised.

The full Volvo range is available at Essex Volvo, including the continuously impressive V40. If you would like to find out more about any of our outstanding models, or to book a test drive, please get in touch with Essex Volvo today.
