Had a look at the V40 today. First impressions are that its pretty but easily forgotten - certainly doesn't have the impact that the C30 had. The doors are thin and light which is very un-Volvo like and didn't give me much confidence in the build quality. But I am used to two-door cars which naturally have bigger doors. Sitting inside it is very nice and plush with a high-end premium feel and look. The only thing that slightly concerned me was how low the roof was which made the car feel a tiny bit stuffy.

The rear-view mirror is seriously cool with a frameless design that no doubt other manufacturers will copy ASAP.

What it looks like is of course a matter of personal taste. THe doors are not thin or flimsy at all. Please compare them to the rear doors of the S40 or V50. Now there are some un-volvo like doors. The new V40 feels very solid. In every respect, especially driving it. I really enjoyed my drives in the D2 and the T4. Feels so much better than my 2005 S40 2.0D
