Default Volvo V40 spotted

Volvo's small car spotted on the street for the first time. The Audi A3 and Merc A Class don't want to see this picture, I'm sure! Though the Swedish are yet to make a mark on our India. Can this be the one for em?

What a beautiful looker that is!
Lovely vehicle indeed.
Wish that Volvo succeeds to a greater level here because their cars are superb.

The most gorgeous competitor of the A3/A Class IMO. Would be interesting to see how the consumers responds.

Absolutely love the way this looks. Volvo's designs have become less boxy over the years. From the XC 90 to the XC 60 and now this!

Prettiest Volvo I've seen till date!

Is it just me or does the rear look like the BMW X1??
I think its the snout that gives it the all appealing look. Love the alloys too.

The car looks stunning. Seems it was developed based on Ford Focus, when Ford owned Volvo cars division.

If launched in india at even 28 lnas ex-showroom it will be a sales hit. A CKD can be brought in early to get the early-bird advantage over Merc A Class.

Some-how - i personally like this vehicle.

I think this is now silently been launched.

http://www.cardekho.com/india-car-ne...untry-8771.htm

http://www.carsalesindia.com/news/Vo...nched-961.html

The above links seem to suggest the availability of this stunner at 20 lakhs (ex-showroom I guess)

Volvo should also get their C30 to india. They definitely need to advertise better. They have such amazing products but no publicity!
