Does anyone know the torsional rigidity figure of the MY 2016 Volvo v40?

http://blogs.youwheel.com/2014/04/25...ehensive-list/

I stumbled across this site and figured I'd be interested to know the figures for my car.

Interesting website... is suspect it's similar to a Focus - but would be interesting to see if it's any different being built by Volvo rather than Ford!

Some interesting other results there. Best is a M3 with 40000 - but all the Hyundai's score very very high!

An insight into different manufacturers design specs I suspect!!

Hyundai's definitely feel much sturdier than their Japanese counterparts from what I've test driven, what surprised me the most is the 300% increase from the alfa 156 to the 159...Also amazing how much a sunroof impacts the rigidity, made me feel glad I didn't spec one

Similar to the Focus, however if you want the "Rocket Ship" Ford Focus, you only get 3 doors, whereas T5 V40's are 5 door !

I thought the new RS was 5-door? Manual gearbox, bigger engine and a fair bit more power than a T5 though...
But you can see the family resemblance.
