V40 is at the heart of character and Volvo lives in their souls. V40 has complete safety features, sophisticated chassis design, and interior facilities. For the 2004 model, the v40 accepts three color options, Terra Gray, Cherry Red and Virtual Blue. A new Limited Sports Edition package is also available, only 2,500 units of this package will be offered.
However the V40 features a variety of Volvo qualities and a satisfying quality feel for the interior. Stylish sedans and versatile carriages continue to build on their first-year reputation for offering Volvo virtues at affordable prices. For 2003, a powerful 1.9-liter four-cylinder engine received an increase in power of up to 170 bhp at 5,250 rpm, up 10 horsepower from 2002. A fat torque rating of 177 ft.-lb. from 1,800 to 4,800 rpm it remains unchanged. Standard 5-speed adaptive automatic transmission electronically controlled adjusts the performance characteristics of the S40 or V40 with your personal driving style. The four-wheel independent suspension and the latest generation anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution (EDB) provide exceptional stopping power. The Dynamic Stability Assistance feature, which monitors and compares the rotation speed of all four wheels and uses the engine management system to reduce torque when detecting loss of traction, is an available option offered through the Climate Package.
As members of the Volvo family, in terms of safety, the V40 has all the good standards including the Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) with side airbags and Curtain Inflatable (IC), the Whiplash Protection Seating System (WHIPS), front seat belts with a pyrotechnic pre-tensioner, ” smart “dual-stage front airbag (SRS), Volvo safety cage construction plus ISO-FIX child safety seat attachments.
Like the luxurious S80, the V40 comes with an Environmental Product Declaration certified by Lloyd’s Register of London, England. This declaration states that these models meet environmental standards during the car life cycle – a cradle-to-grave approach to environmental management.
There are not many differences between buyers of S40 and V40. Both have good quality with orientation towards friends and family oriented. They consider the Volvo V40 a sedan with a long roof and not as a traditional wagon vehicle. They tend to be young entry-level buyers (25-35); single or pre-family couples with household income of around $ 75,000, as well as retired empty people.
