Thanks motmot!
Love the Thor headlights & the de-bulged DSP radar... About time for that...
As for the rest... Nothing startling & not even sure I like the XC90 grille on the V40 or any of those wheels...
Maybe they'll grow on me... maybe.

without seeing the pre facelift side by side with the new I will hold judgement, as at the moment only the headlights and that grill!! seem to drown out the rest in the first pictures, also be nice to know how much has been removed.

As mentioned apart from the lights and grill not changed at all which is a bit disappointing

There are new wheel styles and some interior tweaks (different upholstery options etc) but it is just a facelift and not a new model - there were never going to be major changes.

I like it on the standard V40, but prefer the old design for the CC and R design personally.

I like the black around the windows on the first few pics. One of the articles suggests that's a new option. The grille looks different in each of the pictures as they're all at different angles - so hard to make a judgment. The lights are better than I had expected though - a bit subtler than they are on the new 90s.
