What alternatives should I consider to a used Volvo V40 hatchback?

The Audi A3 Sportback is one of the best cars in the Volvo V40's class; it provides strong yet efficient engines, a beautifully finished interior, and a great blend of ride and handling. The rather firm ride of S Line models on sports suspension is the only major downside.

The BMW 1 Series, meanwhile, is the driver’s choice, offering rear-wheel drive balance and sharp handling. But that’s not all it can offer – good performance, low running costs and a best-in-class infotainment system are further highlights. However, the large hump in its floor does rob some space in the rear seats, while boot space is also compromised.

Even if it can’t match the best in class for its driving experience, the Volvo V40 still has a fine interior and lots of safety kit

  • Smart, high-quality interior
  • Lots of equipment
  • Great safety standards
  • Firm ride
  • Notchy gearshift
  • Too much road noise
