Really like the car, ticks all the boxes for me (except my wife hates it, she thinks it's an old man's car??).
I'm just hanging on until my local dealer gets the demonstrator in before ordering. Spec will be...
V40 D2 ES
Active TFT Driver Display
17” Mannan Alloys
P10G Blonde Leather interior
Rain Sensor with Auto Wiper
In this spec it's £550 cheaper a year to run for me than the equiv BMW 1 series and £900 cheaper than the equiv Audi A3, more if you include the daily London congestion charge. My previous cars are (in reverse order) BMW 1 series, BMW 5 series, Audi A4, Golf GT Tdi. Having BMWs for the last 5yrs I'm just sick of sliding around in the snow, seriously... I prefer to take my wife's Punto on the 70mile commute into London than either of the BMWs if there is snow on the ground.
The one thing I'm lost on is the COLOUR, would appreciate some help on this, I like the red but my wifes Punto is red, my previous 4 cars have been either black, silver or white and I'm looking for something different.
Jens-Peter, Your configured car looks very smart in Caspian blue, that's one of the 4 colours on my short list. Although the colour is a little different on the UK website, it's a deeper blue. I prefer your colour pics, what Volvo website are you using? Your views of the configured car are also far better than I can find on the UK website.
GusGecko: Yes i persume it is. It's the standard on the Momentum. It would have been nice to get the "Ailos", but they costs 20.000 kr (£2100) so I decided to upgrade the audio and get the LED-display package instead.
London_2012: I use the swedish iPad app, "Bygg Din Volvo" (Build your Volvo) http://itunes.apple.com/dk/app/bygg-din-volvo/id514870132?mt=8 and thats where the screenshot is taken too. The car configurator is not yet available on the danish website.
