With just a few days before the car’s official debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Volvo has finally decided to reveal the official details on the new generation V40. The new V40 will be replacing two existing models - the S40 and the V50 - and will compete with models like the Audi A3 and the BMW 1-Series.

"The all-new V40 is the first new model that is fully developed according to our human-centric, Designed Around You strategy. Charged with an outstanding set of high-tech features it definitely will give our toughest competitors a headache," says Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation.

The new five-door hatchback’s engine line-up starts with the brand’s very first diesel engine that boasts CO2 emissions of 94g/km. The lineup then extends to the turbocharged T5 petrol engine with 254 HP and an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds.

UPDATE 02/28/2012: This review has been updated with the official details and images for the Volvo V40.
