Volvo V40 Hatch

Starting from £22,510

A stylish compact hatchback, the Volvo V40's clean, contemporary lines and powerful, sporting character make it ideal for everyday life and driving enjoyment.

The Volvo V40 has been designed to express who you are.  Going beyond the everyday, the V40's Scandinavian design heritage makes it the individual’s choice, but it doesn’t need to shout to be noticed.

That’s because it’s a Volvo, designed to fit seamlessly into lives that demand more. It is compact and nimble, but feels like a much larger car inside. The wide shoulder line sweeps back and up from the headlamps into the rear door, giving the car a strong, planted look. And inside, you’re surrounded by beautiful materials in a cabin designed for comfort and light.

Clean, contemporary lines and a powerful, sporting character make the V40 a car to be enjoyed, every day.

With its V-shaped bonnet and strong shoulders that stretch from just behind the headlamps, the new Volvo V40 cuts an imposing figure on the road and at the kerbside. Its distinctive Scandinavian design reflects your individuality, while its dynamic nature is made clear by the car’s sporty character. With LED headlights that share the same striking design as the new XC90, you have a compact Volvo that makes a big impression.
To match those striking LED headlights, four new front grilles with either chrome or black gloss bars depending on trim level, further emphasise the car’s dynamic intentions and modern, stylish look. There are also plenty of colours to choose from, including new Volvo colours Amazon Blue and Denim Blue.

Add an extensive range of alloy wheels with new designs, and you can now personalise your V40 like never before.


The V40 is inspired by the all of the things that make a Swedish home so welcoming – comfort, light and the best of natural materials and craftsmanship.  Cool on the outside and warm on the inside.

Volvo V40 Light Interior

From the moment you open the door you are welcomed by a cabin full of light and space, a place where you are surrounded by innovation and which has been designed to ensure that you enjoy every journey.

Craftsmanship is a crucial element in Volvo Cars’ design and it is reflected in the way materials have been used in the V40. Fine-quality leather with beautiful stitching adds detail without cluttering the overall effect.

Making the most of natural light and with soft illumination in the cabin, the V40 has an interior that will leave you feeling relaxed and soothed. It’s your home away from home.

Volvo V40 Driving Position

Drive-E Powertrain

Every V40 engine is a Drive-E powertrain, so every V40 gives you responsive power with low fuel consumption and emissions. Volvo's advanced powertrains mean you can enjoy driving without sacrificing efficiency.

The V40 has a powertrain for everyone, from the ultra-efficient D2 to the powerful T5. These light, compact four-cylinder engines use low-friction technology to make every drop of fuel work harder and go further, so a full tank lasts longer and has less impact on the environment.
Drive-E is about more than powertrains and Volvo has applied the no-compromise principles to their transmissions too with the six- and eight-speed transmissions having been perfectly matched to the engines, while helping to maintain excellent fuel economy and refinement.

Ground-breaking technology makes the Volvo V40 diesels quiet and smooth ensuring that journeys are relaxed and enjoyable. Their innovative i-ART injection technology measures precisely the right amount of fuel for each cylinder, making the engine run more efficiently. Every V40 diesel, from the 120hp D2 to 190hp D4, uses i-ART, so you always benefit from a refined, frugal experience.

With their spontaneous response from the moment you pull away Volvo's petrol powertrains will always give you the performance you need, when you need it. Advanced turbocharging means the compact engines pack a powerful punch, a principle which applies to all their powertrains, from the 122hp T2 to the 245hp T5. 
Choosing a Volvo V40 is the easy part. And now all you need to do is select the equipment level that’s right for you.

Special Features

Sensus Connect

Stay online when you’re on the road with Sensus Connect, technology that connects you and your Volvo to the rest of the world. Because everything Volvo does is designed around you, Sensus’ intuitive interface will have you online in seconds*.
The optional Sensus Connect is at the heart of your online world, turning the V40 into an internet-connected infotainment hub at the touch of a button. Voice control allows you to operate Sensus Connect without having to take your eyes off the road or your hands from the wheel. Call up music, find a radio station or have texts from your phone read to you as you drive.
Connect your devices to the web using Volvo On Call which turns your V40 into a wi-fi hotspot. You’ll benefit from stable, reliable reception because your data connection comes through the car’s aerial.
It’s all part of the Sensus experience – one that enriches every moment that you spend in your Volvo.


Giving you the best listening experience whichever seat you are in, the V40 is available with Premium Sound by Harman Kardon, makers of high-quality audio equipment. With up to 10 speakers and advanced sound enhancement software you will enjoy the highest quality, every time.
You also get a huge choice of streamed music and access to your favourite radio stations with Sensus Connect’s range of entertainment apps. Connect your devices to the V40 and listen to your own music collection at any time.
Sensus Connect also helps you find your way simply and efficiently with its intuitive navigation technology, as well as offering you apps that help find parking spaces and petrol stations. It will even share your location with your friends. And you will never suffer from outdated mapping as Sensus Navigation includes free map updates.


Perfect parking, every time. The optional Park Assist Pilot is like having someone park your car for you. It tells you if a parallel parking spot is the right size for your V40 and then takes over the steering to slot it in.
For parallel parking it requires a space just 1.2 times the length of your V40, so it can tackle even the tightest of spaces. All you do is put your V40 in gear, brake according to the screen prompts and the car will steer itself into the space. If you want to park yourself, the park assist camera and front and rear sensors will help you fit into the space with confidence.
Your Volvo is even watching out for you when you’re reversing out of a space. The optional Cross Traffic Alert can spot vehicles approaching behind your Volvo at a distance of up to 30 metres, and warn you of cyclists and pedestrians at shorter distances.
