2017 Volvo S40 Will Be Made In Colloboration With Geely

By

Not much is known yet about the upcoming S40 from Volvo, other than what Volvo want us to know or see; they released a concept called Concept 40.1, which we are expecting to be the new 2017 Volvo S40, but no official confirmation actually exists regarding that.

This next generation compact sedan will be one of the first products to be released under the collaboration of Volvo and the parent company, Geely. Only time will tell just how successful that partnership will be, but looking at the styling, they’ve at least got that right.

2017 Volvo S40 Release date

Although some are saying that it will be the 2017 Volvo S40, there are two things that need to said; the first being that it is an assumption that this model will actually be the S40, and the other being that we’ll get to see it in 2017 – some rumors have the model being released in 2018. Assuming that it will indeed arrive in 2017, it definitely won’t be until later in the year.

2017 Volvo S40 release date: late 2017

2017 Volvo S40 Price

Given that we’re only just past the concept stage, it’s enormously difficult to put a price on the base model, but given the competition, we’d guess that the introductory model will sit just under $30,000.

2017 Volvo S40 Redesign and Changes

This is a brand new model in the Volvo line up, from what we’ve see of it, we like it; riding higher than a normal sedan, the S40 is almost a cross between an SUV & sedan – plenty of ground clearance, although being honest, it seems an odd way to go.

2017 Volvo S40 Specs

The Concept 40.1 is built on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform, as is the sister Concept 40.2 (believed to be an XC40). This should mean all-wheel drive capability. Under the hood will be a few different options for powering the vehicle, starting at a 1.5 liter 3-cylinder turbo charged motor which produces a usable 200 BHP, we also know that Volvo will be using a 4-cylinder diesel (although whether that will make it to the U.S. remains to be seen) and a hybrid using the 3-cylinder gas motor coupled up to an electric motor, perhaps with as much as 300 BHP.

2017 Volvo S40 Equipment

Perhaps one of the biggest unknowns is just what equipment will be fitted as standard. It’s a safe bet that the Volvo will have plenty of safety equipment, as an introduction to Volvo’s commitment to have no deaths (as driver or passenger) by 2020.
