After a host of reports on the new next generation Volvo five- door series, the company has yesterday released the first official photos of the V40 Five- door hatchback which have widely spread on the internet.
There are no specific reports on the V40 which forces us to a little bit think about its body. well, the white sheet covered seems to have swoopy styling which is greatly affected by the design of the S60.
The V40 is planned to be built as the base form for the upcoming generation of the three- door C30. In addition, the company was set this V40 five- door to be able to face against its competitors such as the BMW 1 Series and the Audi A3 Sportback.
The two models, C30 and V40 are expected to be available with the latest range of four cylinder diesel and gasoline engines completed with a new direct- injection and turbocharging technologies.
Unfortunately there is no further information in the V40 hatchback’s specs and details officially, yet according to an automotive magazine which quoted the statement of Stefan Jacoby who is Volvo’s CEO, the Volvo V40 Five- door Hatchback will remain be named as V40 not V30 as the rumors said. Stefan Jacoby also said that the V40 will have its global outing at the upcoming Geneva Salon which will be held in March next year.
Wait for further details on the V40 to be announced at the upcoming days.
