New Volvo V40 Images And Video Leak Ahead Of Geneva Debut

We’ve known since December that Volvo was planning the debut of its all-new V40 at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Thanks to an inadvertent leak via Facebook earlier this month, we already got a good look as to how the new V40 would be styled.

Now, more images plus a new video have hit the Web, revealing the V40 from almost every angle and including a look at the interior for the first time.

Under the hood should be Volvo’s new-generation four-cylinder engine that we saw debut in the XC60 Plug-In Hybrid Concept. Displacing 2.0 liters, the engine should output close to 200 horsepower thanks to turbocharging and direct-injection technologies.

Unfortunately, as we reported a few months back, it isn’t likely that the new V40 will be U.S.-bound. In Volvo’s eyes, customers on these shores don’t buy hatchbacks or station wagons, instead favoring sedans, crossovers and SUVs. That’s a shame, since the V40 looks to be the right blend of style and comfort to appeal to a wide range of buyers.

While we may not get the V40, rumors are that Volvo is working on a crossover variant, to be called the XC40. Details are scarce, but expect the XC40 to carry similar lines to the V40 while offering a taller seating position and available all-wheel-drive.

We’ll bring you live shots of the Volvo V40, plus all the official details, as part of our 2012 Geneva Motor Show coverage.
