Nice review, and good quality photos. Interior looks almost like in mine, expect for the colouring and digital instrumentation. Beautiful wheels you have there too. :thumbup:

Absolutely like the wheels. They were advertised as 'grey' in the brochure which made me assume they would be much darker. Wish i'd ordered some now!

Nice blog post!
For the first time, I tried to sit on the back seat yesterday, and you're quite right, there is a great visibility because of the backseats being moved closer to each other.

I haven't really noticed the glovebox, but I do like the illuminated gear leaver, I would prefer that to cold aluminium. Otherwise I agree, I too have a small family of 3, and this car suits us perfectly, in and out of town!

Thanks guys!

Jens-Peter, nice to know you also share my opinion that the car is suitable for a small family, based on your experience.

When it comes to the gear knob, I actually don't mind the cold feeling of an aluminium one. It could also be mostly covered with leather, with aluminium details only, to minimise this feeling. I would prefer that to the plasticky feeling of the one in the V40. I think it would also look better.

My Peugeot 406 had a leather gear knob, but the bulb on top had a plastic disc, thus I suppose this is the reason the one in my V40 made no impression (good or bad) to me. Of course leather offers a special feeling, if I have to judge from the steering wheel, and I would prefer that. Anyway, illumination is something new and unique.
Hand glove compartment? Yes, there is something "cheap" and extralight there, it reminds me of an after market cover I had installed on my Fiat Tipo !
