Default Scoop: 2009 Volvo S40 (Photoshop Image)

Scoop: 2009 Volvo S40 (Photoshop Image)


Taking several design cues from the XC60 SUV concept, German magazine Autozeitung has come up with a photoshoped image of the next generation S40 which is expected to come out late 2008 - early 2009. Although nothing’s certain yet, according to a previous report I read on Automotive News who citied a Volvo manager, the 2009 S40 will replace both S40 and S60 models. If that happens, inevitably, the new S40 will grow in length to over 4.5m (matching the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes C-Class & Audi A4) thus closing the gap on today's 4.58m long S60. That means that Volvo will most probably base the S40 on the Mondeo / S-MAX platform and not on the Focus platform as it did with the current model. P

I'm neutral with the front but the side rendering looks nice.

Autozietung photoshopped some Volvoishness onto the next-gen Mondeo concept.

IOW, "this is what we think it could look like."

With that euro license plate where it is, it looks like it has a buck-tooth grin.

I do have mix emotions on this car... on the one hand, it does look nice (there are some things I would like if they cleaned them up on the front, but overall a very nice design - especially that rear end)...

.... BUT, that looks like it rides on the new Modeo platform... which means that once again, FoMoCo is looking after it's other divisions and forsaking it's USDM Ford and Mercury brands.
