I'm also led to believe that the suspension on the R-Design "standard" unless opted for the lowered version, which I didnt thankfully.
Maybe I'm lucky in regards to rattles, as there are none, well none that I can hear over the general loudness within the cabin from road noise ect.
I really dont think the V40 is at all refined when it comes to engine/gearbox noise coming through into the cabin either, not just road noise.
Would I buy another Volvo, well I dont know, possibly not, but if I did and it was to be another V40 then the styling inside and out would need to be updated a bit more, and I would definitely test drive it far more than what I did when I bought this one before making a final decision.
I do think the V40 feels fairly well put together, I just dont think its a quiet & calming car to drive, and I'm not totally unhappy with mine, but I think for the money spent there were other marques that I could of and possibly should of looked into.
