Re: S40 DRIVe D5 Wins What Car? Green Car of the Year in Britain ([email protected])

That is flat out awesome! The S40 1.6 beat the Supermini Fiat 500 in lower CO2 as well as MPG's. That is awesome and awesome!

GRR!!<p>Not a big fan of those rims, but just goes to show that a #$%load of nice cars never reach our shores. Had myself a V70 D5 when I was in Germany and it was a blast. Besides a bit of clatter when warming up in the morning and a noticeably lower tach, none of my passengers could tell it was a diesel. Only thing was the horrid turn circle. Would have been lovely having me a D5 over here.....Sigh. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

I mean look at the Honda FIT 28 city/35 highway mpg, the thing is freaking tiny. The 2005 T5 I drive adverages around 27-28 mpg mixed driving. I can tell you which one I feel safer driving, which one would you prefer to drive?

The S40/V50 D5 is way more powerful, producing 180 bhp. The <A HREF="http://www.worldcarfans.com/9090107.025/volvo-d5-twin-turbo-diesel-revealed-for-s80" TARGET="_blank">brand new twin turbo D5</A> produces 205 bhp with a 45 mpg average.
