Volvo V30 spied
These are the first spy pictures of Volvo’s crucial new Golf rival, tipped to be called Volvo V30.

The five-door hatchback will sit between the C30 and V50 in Volvo’s range and will share its front-drive ‘P1’ platform with these models (as well as the S40) when it is launched in 2013.

The V30 is tipped to be the first car to get Volvo’s new range of modular four-cylinder VEA (Volvo Environmental Architecture) engines, which will be no greater than 2.0 litres in capacity. This new engine family will consign the firm’s five-, six- and eight-cylinder units to history.

Volvo will also launch a baby SUV, called XC30 and based on an all-wheel-drive version of the P1 platform. There may be two different versions of the XC30: a standard-wheelbase version for Europe and a stretched model for China and, perhaps, North America.

Beefy cladding. Glad to see it doesn't have the new huge triangle vents the other new Volvo's have. Or does it?

Not For U.S.: Volvo Teases All-New V40
The Volvo V40 five-door is on its way to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and Volvo has released the teaser photo to prove it. The automaker published a shot of the upcoming car, under wraps, to tease the model’s upcoming release.

The photo shows a model under wraps, and offers only that what’s beneath the sheet is “The All-New V40.” In an accompanying video, Volvo Cars CEO Stefan Jacoby has little to say about exactly what the V40 will be, but still manages to wax poetic about the finished product.

“I’m really positive with this car,” Jacoby says. “We’re making a big, big step to moving up to our core competitors.”

Volvo V40 Photos Leak Ahead of Geneva Debut
The leaked images reveal that the Volvo V40 will adopt a considerably sleeker design than the old boxy model. A character line runs the length of the car, kinking up over the rear wheel wells. In profile, the five-door V40 looks like a less-tall version of the company’s XC60 and XC90 crossovers. The front fascia and headlights recall the Volvo S60 sedan, while the large glass liftgate mimics the opening on the C30 hatchback.

Volvo has previously said that the new V40 won’t be sold in the U.S. market. Overseas, the V40 essentially supplants the slightly larger V50 wagon. European buyers will reportedly be able to pick from engines displacing between 1.4 and 2.0 liters, with all-wheel-drive optional on all trims. Volvo’s anti-collision City Safety and Pedestrian Safety technology will be on board.

it looks awful

The rear end looks like someone hacked it up. The front look like something from the cars in the genre of Nissan Leaf

The only shot that looks good is the side. Damn--i am not happy, i was looking forward to it

All-new Volvo V40 leaked
These leaked but unofficial images are believed to show the final styling of the all-new Volvo V40. The pictures – which first appeared on the Facebook page of a Polish car magazine – show that the V40 borrows styling cues from Volvo XC60 SUV, most notably the new car’s front and rear light cluster designs. The profile of the five-door hatch also apes that of the SUV, albeit scaled down.

The V40 is tipped to be the first car to get Volvo’s new range of modular four-cylinder VEA (Volvo Environmental Architecture) engines, which will be no greater than 2.0 litres in capacity.

Due to be launched officially at the Geneva motor show in March, the new V40 will be joined by a baby SUV, dubbed the XC40. The V40 is set to replace both the S40 and V50 in Volvo’s line-up, but the future of the three-door C30 is less clear.

It's not bad overall but the rear is too busy for my tastes.
