2006 Volvo S40 Overview

Cute may not be the first word that comes to mind in response to the word Volvo, but the S40 begs to differ. As the Swedish carmaker's smallest sedan, it certainly is cute, but a few other adjectives come first: safe, efficient, and upscale. While it's not a full-fledged luxury car, it won't disappoint even the pickiest driver in its comfort and included amenities. The 2006 S40 boasts an impressive list of standard features that enhance both safety and comfort for driver and passengers alike. On the safety side of things, included equipment runs the gamut from side-impact protective beams to anti-submarining seats designed to hold occupants in during a crash. The design of this vehicle has been thoroughly thought out, with its patented deformation zones using an appropriate variety of steel types, to shield its riders from harm as much as possible. Every S40 comes with air conditioning, power windows, power locks, a CD player, ABS, and traction control. Options include leather seats, seat heaters, rain-sensing windshield wipers, cabin air filter, and the Volvo Navigation System. Depending on which options you wish, you may have to buy a package. The options-package groupings were simplified for this model year.
