Geneva motor show: Volvo V40
22 Feb 2012 16:40

The new Volvo V40 has been revealed ahead of its unveiling at the Geneva motor show next month.

Leaked images of the new model which is expected to replace the S40 saloon and V50 estate have appeared on various websites. The images which appear to be genuine show the five-door hatchback has a similar look to Volvos S60, V60 and XC60 models.

The V40 is expected to go on sale later this year and will give Volvo a much-needed rival to the Audi A3 Sportback, BMW 1 Series and VW Golf.

More details are expected to be released closer to the Geneva motor show.
