2008 Volvo S40 Overview

Volvo's little sedan got a big redesign for 2008. On the outside, the S40 gets new headlights, a bigger grille, and new taillights. Inside, you get more interior space, an auxiliary input for an MP3 player, and a Blind-Spot Information System. The S40 features three trims, with the T5 getting 6 months of Sirius Satellite Radio and a bump up to 227 hp. The 2.4i features a 2.4-liter, 168-hp inline five-cylinder engine.

Gas mileage averages out to around 19 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway. All trims have 4 doors and seat 5. The 2.4i gives you a standard 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 5-speed automatic, while the T5 and T5 AWD feature a standard 5-speed automatic. All three trims have 12.6 cubic feet of cargo space.

Overall, drivers like the S40's style, controls, comfort, solid safety features, and smooth handling. On the other hand, acceleration could stand some improvement, and options can cost you if you don't watch yourself. Despite its shortcomings, the 2008 Volvo S40 offers a stylish and capable package at a relatively low price.
