Choose/ find me a Volvo 😍


#1

Bored of my Freelander’s rough engine and wank sound system so decided I’d quite like a Volvo V40 to replace it.

Drawn to the interior comfort of Volvo’s and the 70+ mpg and performance of the diesels. Quite like the sound of Cross Country models too with softer suspension etc.

Don’t want a new one, an example witharound 25k miles is fine.

Not very knowledgeable about the specs if I’m honest but the main thing I care about is decent stereo, anything else is a bonus - which spec should I go for?


#2

Brown interior is obvs :heart_eyes:


#3

Yes.

Nope.

Nope.


#4

Isn’t legroom an issue with these?


#5

Specs seem to suggest all the diesels >70mpg - obviously manufacturers claims can be overstated.

150bhp and 190bhp is plenty for me.


#6

Only if you have clown like proportions and omit to pull the seat back.


#7

Consider Discovery Sport before jumping ship from RR. Better refinement and improved NVH.
I, personally, find the Ovlovs to be excellent but I would chose the V60 as the load space in the V40 is “hatch-back” sized.


#8

And are you really sucked in by manufacturer’s MPG claims ? You struck me as reasonably intelligent :thinking:


#9

My first thought was Disco Sport but I’m not inclined to drop £25-30k on one right now.

The load space of the V40 won’t be an issue as part of the plan is to also buy a VW T5 and have a custom conversion done to it (replacing the T2 I’m afraid).

Nope it should still return about double what the FL manages.

:wink:


#12

I know, I know. But wifey wants to go touring in Europe - we’re not doing that in our Bay I’m afraid.


#13

Go on, go on go on go on go on…


#14

Unless you granny it round at 56mph behing a lorry on the motorway all the the time you’ll never get 70mpg. Look at honest john for real world mpg, more likey, with a weedy D2 engine is a high 50s average.


#15

Feck, that is gorgeous ! Want.


#16

However, I win the entire feckin’ interweb ------------------------

:heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:

I thang yoo :grinning:


#17

That is beautiful

That’s an ugly bus (and I don’t care if it can go from 0-100mph in 3 seconds)


#18

Has the suspension failed or is @FatCuntTroller adjusting the seat out of shot?


#19

Neither. @FatCuntTroller is actually driving it. It is so huge he can’t see above the dashboard.

Fact

It’s absolutely lovely. Look at those lines, classic.

Eminently practical too :+1:
