The Volvo S40 debuted in North America in 2000. This was the Swedish brand’s first attempt at getting a share of the compact-sport-sedan market that has always been dominated by German brands. This time, Volvo didn’t have a boxy-shaped car. The S40 was stylish and sleeker. It was also fun to drive. In 2004, a sportier and redefined second-generation S40 was introduced. This time, there was a turbocharged 5-cylinder that came as an option for consumers.

It offered plenty of style, refinement, and comfort despite not being as athletic or prestigious as its German rivals. The T5 AWD R-Design is a favorite in the 2010 Volvo V50 and S40 lineup. It comes with a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that churns 236 pound-feet of torque and 227 horsepower. It’s mounted on a 6-speed-manual transmission and has revs of between 1,500 to 4,800 rpm. According to Car and Driver, the engine has excellent highway passing with little to no turbo lag. The 2.4-liter, 170 pound-feet, 168-horsepower inline-5 isn’t as great as its counterpart. It was described as adequately perfect by Edmunds and unimpressive by ConsumerGuide. The base engine comes with either a 5-speed-manual or 5-speed-automatic transmission. Drivers should go easy on it for smooth gear shifting.

According to Edmunds, the standard setup might impress buyers overall with its mix of vibrancy, comfort, and performance. There’s modest lean in corners as the car is well designed. The all-wheel-drive takes a toll on fuel consumption, offering poor fuel economy. The turbocharged, nevertheless, provides efficiency in the midst of high performance. The manual Volvo S40 gets from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds while the automatic trim hits the 60-mph mark in 7.1 seconds. The manual’s fuel efficiency is rated at 20/26/22 mpg while that of the auto is at 19/27/22 mpg. The automatic 2.4i model gets from 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds and boasts a fuel economy of 20/31/24 mpg. The 2010 Volvo V50 and S40 base models come with 17-inch wheels that make them appear sporty. The turbocharged T5 trims boast of a more aggressive look thanks to their color-coordinated spoilers and side skirts. Following a decision made in 2008, the Volvo logo is now 50% enhanced.

The projector headlights are stylish with the LED rear lights being high-intensity. The interior features extra storage compartments to provide more capacity at the center console and in the doors. The middle-armrest has been improved to provide exceptional comfort. The handbrake is also smaller and unobtrusive. The V50 and S40 provide cool and functional interiors built to impress consumers. With the V50 wagon and S40 sedan, buyers get a mix of luxury, sportiness, fuel efficiency and refinement.

The latest models come packed with tons of upgrades. The 2010 V50 and S40 Volvos are easy to control in tight spots and provide a fun driving in high-speed cruising and on country roads. The sedan offers as much noise as you’d find in other brands. The Haldex all-wheel-drive system also handles well on slippery and wet roads.
