Durable and comfortable the V40 is now a cheap car with a decent badge that makes real sense as a budget buy.
The V40 was a competitive junior executive estate when launched and still retains an aura of quiet respectability. Surprisingly good to drive and the T4 is a bit of a rocket.
Diesel V40s seem to be cheaper in the secondhand market place - mainly due to the high mileage and usage patterns of Volvo estates. Go for a nice, lightly used petrol in an unfashionable colour and grab yourself a bargain!
There is little to distinguish any variant of the V40 in terms of spec. You could pay a couple of hundred more for a T4 but price will most likely be dependent on condition and location as much as anything else.
Pay £3000 for a low miles 1.8 petrol Volvo V40 at 6 years old with around 65,000 miles on the clock. If well maintained it will go on forever.
Depreciation is likely to be steady on these cars and highly affected by specification and mileage. There is no best time to buy.
