Volvo S40 Classic

The current Volvo S40 and V40 continue in production until June as ‘Classic’ models with a rationalised range which includes a 1.8 petrol engine not yet available with the recently announced all-new Volvo S40 saloon and V50 Sportswagon models.

The prices of S40 and V40 Classic models are reduced from nearly £500 to almost £1,000 and now start from £13,998 and £14,998 respectively (on the road), or with Volvo Advantage finance from £199 a month1 including a deposit contribution of nearly £600 from Volvo Car Finance.

The Volvo S40 and V40 Classic models are available in S, Sport and SE specifications, with a choice of 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrol engines, plus a 1.9 turbo-diesel. SE derivatives have been reduced by almost £1000, and are now priced the same as Sport models which now benefit from Electronic Climate Control and Gas Discharge Headlamps worth £1,400.
