Auto Trader Verdict:
Volvo has been so busy launching new models that there was a real danger the V40 would get left behind. This mid-life refresh does just about enough to keep it on the heels of the class-leaders. It's stylish, efficient and good to drive, but still lags behind the competition in a number of key areas, especially cabin space and that dated infotainment system. Fingers crossed both of those things are at the top of the jobs list for its 2018 replacement.
