I recently drove the 2010 volvo S40 though I was looking for the S40 T5 AWD I found the base model to handle exceptionally well. The interior was well styled though I felt certain options should be standard like a moonroof in a premium vehicle. The suspension was a big a surprise as I never thought the base model would be a performer. The engine was a bit underpowered to to my liking (probably since its missing a cylinder odd volvo 5 cylinder engines) hence why I was looking for the T5. Turbo cars seldom have a high reliability rating since the turbos comfort level has to be met for optimum driving or you'll have many trips to the shop (hello Audi are you fixed yet). If you're not looking to break the sound barrier and want a exceptionally good handling point A to B car with great styling then this is a good choice. If your tall you may find the drivers seat on the snug side. I'm 5'7" and I felt like it was molded to my body when i closed the door.

I have owned all american made cars. I test drove this car and I fell in love. It has pick-up and go, handles like a sports car, and feels like a luxury sedan. The price was great. Compared Mercedes and BMWs and found this to be the best fit. I love the curtain air-bags, I feel completely safe. BEST CAR EVER!!!

Review of S40 Volvo

by from Coppell, TX on April 4, 2017

I like the size and style of this smaller Volvo. I wished this this style was still being made. The servicing of this car has been excellent.
