In our opinion the D2 Volvo V40 comes out ahead due to the fact that it offers a refined and smooth ride, along with good performance, and it offers great CO2 emissions and tax is good too.
There is a huge choice of trims available; all come packed with equipment, including the entry level version. We recommend going with the SE trim as it adds in equipment such as automatic wipers, cruise control and electronic door mirrors that fold. The R-Design version of the Volvo V40 offers a sportier look thanks to the body kit and the addition of larger alloys.
You have a wide choice for optional extras, many are offered in packs bundled together, and this allows you to save money when weighing them up against individual options. You may want to forget about the Cross Country range as the price tag is boosted for nothing more than rugged looks.
