New Volvo V40 revealed ahead of Geneva debut

Two official images of Volvo’s new V40 five-door hatchback have emerged online, offering a look at the updated exterior the new model receives.

From the pictures you can see that the V40 conforms to Volvo’s current styling tendencies, with fluid lines sweeping the body and a sharp-looking front end. Grille design remains unchanged, but raked-back headlights have been added along with a panoramic glass roof that blends into the windscreen.

Further details, such as powertrain options, will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6.

Expect the V40 to go on sale here in Australia early next year.
