The word

Volvo S40

Both the S40 and V50 models (and previously the C30) are available with a 1.6L diesel engine capable of CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km and fuel consumption of 3.8L/100km (62mpg US).

The Volvo 1.6-liter diesel engine meets Euro 5 emissions regulations, the first to do so thus far. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox with start-stop.

And so ...

These improvements are part of Volvo's overall DRIVe badge system, rewarding their vehicles that have the best environmental performance in their lineup.
