The V40 has received positive reviews all round and it's not too hard to see why. The interior is smart and opulent with a few clever Scandinavian design touches such as the "floating" centre console which brings a real upmarket feel to the car. The driving position is very good with plenty of steering and seat adjustment and there bags of space in the front and rear. On the road it is refined and smooth and every engine is more than capable of doing the job, in the corners it remains flat and controlled with minimal body roll for even more driving pleasure. Thankfully as it's a Volvo you get excellent levels of safety equipment and reliability is likely to be very good.
