I’ve rendered these S40 based on the new Volvo V40, with reference to the profile of S60 and rear design of the Volvo You Concept.

This rendering is jaw dropping! Great job in “production-ising” th you concept look. Good job!

It looks pretty cool. Volvo should build a new S40 for the markets were hatchbacks, like the V30, are not the rule like many places in Asia, Latin America, USA, etc.

Thanks Xyoefaton and Jason.

Nice design. There will never be a S40 built because it is too close in size to the S60.

Thanks Anti-believer. There could be an S40, as reported in Carscoop, “… would eventually include the S40 sedan, C40 three-door hatchback and XC40 SUV”

I hate this new Scandinavian design moto for Volvo. Damn ugly. Too much lines, curves. It looks messed up. It looks similar to the the new Hyundai design wave, although Hyundai establishes their cars exterior better. And look at that rear. With rear that high it supposed to be a hatchback. Somehow it reminds me of this one: http://images.awr-cars.co.uk/vehicles/toyota-avensis-hatchback-1-8-vvti-gls-5dr-1911176019-640×480.jpg

John Maloney, President Volvo Cars US:
“We want a base of three strong sedans, where the 80 would be the top, a 60 and maybe something replacing the 40 somewhere down the road; and then three strong XCs, those would be our priorities, XC90 at the top, XC60 and somewhere down the road something more under an XC60”.
So, somewhere down the road Volvo will introduce S40. This fall XC40 (or V40 XC) and after that S40.
I hope the S40 will be similar to your drawing. Very nice!!

Great stuff, looks fantastic! As a Volvo owner I’m a fan of this design you have done. The more Volvo designs you do the better for me.

Great Design, so much better than the V40. I like Volvo wagons because they are practical but this new V40 is awful at the back half, your design is so much better and would be my choice as a liftback.

Thank you VolvoAdventures.

This comment is months in the making, but honestly, Theophilus… I think this is your best rendering yet. I could see myself buying this car over the Chevy Cruze, if only it existed.
