Benefits of Driving a 2011 Volvo S40 Sedan

Volvo includes lots of standard comfort and technology features even on these entry-level models. Fuel economy for both the V50 and S40 is surprisingly good

What's new for 2011?

There are few changes to either the S40 or V50 for 2011. It retains the distinctive floating center console, all the safety systems Volvo is famous for and the T5 turbocharged engine.

Model Strengths

  • Renowned Volvo safety and comfort
  • V50 has lots of interior cargo space
  • powerful turbocharged engine

Model Review

The S40 and V50 have two available engines. The 2.4L 5-cylinder makes 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. The T5 engine is a 2.5L turbocharged 5-cylinder producing 227 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. The S40 T5 can be had with all-wheel or front-wheel drive. The V50 T5 is only available with all-wheel drive. The S40 2.4i comes with a 5-speed manual transmission, but it can be upgraded to the 'Geartronic' automatic transmission that's standard in the S40 T5 and V50 2.4i. Both T5 all-wheel drive cars come with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
