How exciting to go to the Geneva show! I look forward to seeing your photos.

In the meantime, here is Volvo's official press release. There are quite a few interesting details, so set aside 10 minutes or so to read through it:

Well...I'm back from Geneva...what an experiance! Backstage passes to the Volvo 'green room' at the show and the biggest surprise was VIP passes to a private party with our own V40 to look at away from the crowds, C30 electric and 'Concept You' in the flesh! What a machine.

Bad news - I didn't take hardly any photos. Partly down to the whole thing was proffesionally videoed (interviews and all sorts - cringe!), partly beacuse the car itself has been snapped plenty of times but MOSTLY because you just have to see it in person...its just a stunning car.

Beautiful dials and instruments, amazing quality feel, words can't descibe how nice this car is. Really good space in the back (for adults I might add) good size boot (sorry trunk) Can't wait to test drive. Inside scope is - volvo are working on the R Design version of the car which will apparently have its own indiviual colours and spec. I'm trying to get involved in the test drives that are happening before being relased to the public at the Goodwood race track to really try the engines.

I tried to be objective towards this new car, after looking at the latest focus, golf a3 and 1 series..this truly blows them out of the water. The bmw is sooooo bland and boring, the golf...is still justa golf nothing special, again a3 still plain and boring (inside and out) then there's this! Such a nice place to be!!

Stay tuned for the Volvo UK promo video featuring yours truly!! Over and out

Thanks for the insights GusGecko! Too bad our forum isn't big enough yet to really comment much!

Very cool that you're in a promo video for Volvo. Is it posted anywhere online it?

An acquaintance of mine recently appeared in a Ford ad, and is now being offered all sorts of ad gigs as a result -- maybe you're the next spokesman for Volvo? ;)

Haha highly unlikely, not with my dodgy acting skills...its not online yet, its all being edited I guess. I'll post it on here when its on youtube etc.

When this car is released and more people know about it, this forum will be flying I'm sure

Hi,
Can you tell me if you have more informaitons or photo about the cargo beacause I need to order a new car and I have a child and I'm afraid that the cargo is too small ?

Thank you
Best regards

I does have a pretty decent size boot/trunk/cargo if that is what your refering to. Pretty competetive with the rest of the cars of this size.
