Our overall rating:
Volvo’s five-door V40 is designed to take on the premium family hatchback giants, including the Audi A3 Sportback and Volkswagen Golf.
Sleek looks, good standard equipment and a broad range of petrol and diesel engines give it appeal, and it sets the standard for safety in the class. The result is a sophisticated-feeling hatch that has real strengths, including low CO2 emissions and a classy-feeling interior.
