Volvo S40

The Volvo S40 made its debut on the United States market just in time for the dawn of the new millennium in the 2000 model year. This top of the line, compact sedan boasts attractive exterior looks and a carefully planned interior. It has remained a top choice among executives who are looking to celebrate their success in a vehicle that is big on comfort, style and fuel economy, backed by a solid reputation and combined with a high degree of safety. The S40 seems to capture the sentiments of each of these characteristics, offering consumers a perfectly packaged touch of luxury. The S40 was originally built with a four speed automatic overdrive transmission and was a initially offered in one single, comparably equipped version. Standard features of the S40 included air conditioning, cruise control, power controls, and AM/FM radio with tape deck, and optional compact disc, power sunroof, and leather seating. The 2001 model year meant several enhancements and a brand new five speed, electronically controlled transmission. For 2003, the CD player became part of the standard equipment. For the 2004 model year, a chic Limited Sports Edition trim style was added, and available exclusively during this year. It included a higher level of standard equipment and both front and rear spoilers. The second generation S40 was introduced for 2005, with an original, redesigned looked, more advanced safety equipment, as well as the addition of steering wheel mounted controls. Currently, purchasers of the Volvo S40 have three trim style options, the 2.4i, T5, and the T5 AWD. Heated seats, navigational aid , and an innovative keyless drive system have joined the list of available optional features. Safety is of the highest caliber in the Volvo S40, and it has received exceptional reviews from both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Driver, passenger, and side head curtain air bags, antilock brakes, electronic brake assistance, and traction and stability control systems are now a part of the standard safety equipment. The Volvo S40 affords consumers the opportunity to own a taste of extravagance in a completive priced vehicle, fully loaded to meet the demands of contemporary lifestyle.
