2004 Volvo S40 and V40


The cars: The sporty S40 sedan and versatile V40 wagon have earned a place as the high-value, high-fun introduction to the Volvo line for customers looking for all of the Volvo virtues in a compact size.


What's New?

  • The emphasis is on value for 2004 with the introduction of a new "SE" version that features all of the most popular options in a single, attractively priced package. The SE package includes leather interior trim, power driver seat, leather steering wheel, wood or piano black interior accents, 16-inch wheels, front and rear spoilers, fog lights and much more
  • A new colour - Terra Grey - has been added

Key facts

  • An increase last year to 170 h.p. for the standard 1.9-litre 4-cylinder engine with low pressure twin-scroll turbocharger has made both S40 and V40 outstanding performers. The standard 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission means optimum flexibility.
  • The standard for safety in their category, the S40 and V40 feature standard driver and front passenger dual-stage airbags and seatbelts with pyrotechnic pre-tensioners, Volvo-designed SIPS Side Impact Protection System with side airbags, WHIPS whiplash protection seating, Volvo-pioneered IC Inflatable Curtain protection and much more.
  • A high level of standard equipment sets S40 and V40 apart as premium brand entries, including heated seats, heated power mirrors, headlight wiper/washers, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), central door locking system with immobilizer and key-integrated remote and alarm, "Home Safe" lighting, and more.
  • The S40 and V40 were first introduced to Canada in 2001 but has been a regular feature on European roads since 1995.


Price: $31,495 (S40) and $32,495 (V40)
