Volvo’s entry-level compact sedan (which shares a platform with the Mazda3) gets a few key updates for 2007, including standard stability control on all trim levels, some interior tweaks, and the availability of factory-installed Sirius satellite radio. The standard engine remains a 2.4-liter DOHC in-line five-cylinder with turbocharger and intercooler. It is rated at 168 horsepower. T5 models come standard with a slightly larger turbocharged and intercooled 2.5-liter engine offering 218 horsepower. A six-speed manual or five-speed “Geartronic” automatic with manual/sport shifting capability are the transmission choices. Buyers may choose either front- or all-wheel drive on both models. All trim levels come standard with both traction and stability control for 2007. Anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, driver and passenger side-impact and full-length curtain airbags, and Volvo’s OnCall emergency services/telematics system are also standard. The S40 scores highly in NHTSA side-impact testing (5 Stars) and earned 4 Stars in front-impact testing for the driver and 5 Stars for the front-seat passenger. Though it can be pricey relative to other small sedans, the S40 does offer a high level of standard safety equipment along with sporty driving/handling characteristics in an attractively styled, modern package.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
