The Top Gear car review:Volvo V40
Running costs and reliability
No faulting the diesels’ economy. The 1.6 D2 does 78.5mpg, while even the new D4 manages 74.3mpg and 99g/km despite its 190bhp power figure. That’s staggering. With an inclusive standard spec coming with even the ES – posher trims simply add to the luxury – this is a car with few apparent flaws and strong appeal. Volvo has at last got it right.
