Test Drive Volvo S40 1.6D DRIVe 109 MT5

Volvo is one of the most valued automobile manufacturers in the world because all the cars near its present reliability and top quality manufacturing that reach the highest heights.

Test Drive Volvo S40 1.6D DRIVe 109 MT5
If you want a Volvo car 50,000 euros shall be submitted impeccable when it comes to gadgets, as perceived and not least the top engines.

If we instead a more expensive Volvo equipped with a very economical engine, the features of the brand remain constant basis here. A clear example is that of German marks in the entry-level range is not up in terms of quality of manufacture to the reputation gained very expensive top models.

S40 & Co.

Just this segment Volvo S40 offers a very well developed that offers a fuel economy record and not least a feeling of job well done. If competing models such as the Audi A3 1.9 TDI or Mercedes A180 CDI does not excel at acquisition price of safety or, in this test model has it all.

A Volvo S40 version 1.6-liter diesel engine is a performance car on the road but keep quality manufacturing and a taste of the highest level. From this point of view is that we talk about Seria1 BMW, Mercedes A Class or Audi A3, Volvo S40 car offers the best price-performance-quality segment.

S40 1.6D

Everybody knows that this engine is an option to take into account when we talk about a Volvo, but today's financiar reality makes us re thinking. High price of fuel and charges increasingly higher due to the state are ingredients increasingly harder accepted. The only solution is to purchase a premium car with a small displacement engine and very economical.

An example is the car in this test was equipped with a diesel 1.6-liter and 109 hp. They may seem a little but when engine 240 Nm makes vehicle to move elegantly in urban traffic. Small engine power becomes a problem only if you have evidence led before an S40 engined or gas greater or D5.

Consumption

You'll come to say that the HDI engine, Volvo diesel pardon satisfied with a little diesel, that an average of only 9.0 liters in Bucharest. Even though it may seem at first to be mentioned rather than the mass of the car high enough to empty.

In this environment little extra just to reach 1.6 D somewhere around a value of 6 liters per 100 kilometers.

Inside

Every time we have to test and get a Volvo in the chapter entitled opinions about inner things take the same positive direction. Here everything is consistent whether we look at the dashboard or the car check in terms of ergonomy.

The only reproach made to mark the inside is that a novice driver of brand has to accommodate less crowded systems on the dashboard. The rest, if we skip this detail any interior Volvo be it one of 16,000 euros or as we relate to one of more than 70,000 euro becomes familiar.

Road Behavior

The smallest Volvo keeps within certain limits room feeling your little brother or expensive, a behavior that is extremely comfortable and precise road. Running gear rear multi-link type is effective and allows the car to attack corners with a high enough speed.

Price

The test car cost somewhere around 20,000 euros, VAT included, which makes this original detail has become a serious problem for competing models. At this price level Mercedes and Audi offer too little, and competition in the compact segment as Renault, Opel and VW suffers from the lack of a premium.

It is perfectly correct that if we put something on the S40 optional purchase price of 23,000 euros border just salt, but price and quality can not be fought effectively by anyone at the moment.
