Today becomes the fourth time that the new 2013 Volvo V40 has leaked out, it has heavily dipped the anticipation ahead of the unveiling as we have pretty much seen everything already. It started with the rear three-quarter shot and followed with further exterior images that revealed the model from all angles. Worldcarfans are now able to bring you the very first shots of the interior.

Full details are expected to be released within the next few days before the scheduled debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

Upon launch, it will battle against the Audi A3 Sportback and the BMW 1-Series for supremacy in the market. Pricing is set to start in the region of €26,000.

The interior is a bit old fashioned I think. It reminded me of Neil Armstrong's lunar lander...

I like it but if you buy this car and resale it in 5 years, it would be smarter to get a Audi or an BMW.

a word of advice , Volvo : please remove the inordinate amount of chrome-framed accents haphazardly applied to your dashboard elements ... a time-honoured drab feature championed by Volkswagen . the judicious application of chrome finishes especially along the exposed dashboard eliminates reflected glare while driving . in itself , your uncluttered , flush mounted , linear shaped C30 instrument panel layout along with the rest of its immaculately-arranged interior package exemplified sheer , understated elegance ... reflecting the way Leica cameras/lenses are so exquisitely formed . handsome looks combined with sharp handling and performance without compromising safety and reasonable fuel economy could only spell commercial success and achieve broad public acceptance towards your automotive products . with simplicity being the ultimate sophistication to represent your design direction , resist strongly the temptation to turn your cars into origami sheetmetal caricatures , a reckless path taken to excess by Hyundai in its quest for genuine brand recognition within the auto industry arena .

What is actually is, is Volvos new GROTBMW system. It stands for "Get Rid of Tailgaiting BMWs" and when one is too close to your rear bumper, the green light in the rear view mirror shines, and a small missile is dispatched.... or is this wishful thinking??!!

Did you drive them both or are you judging by the pictures?

If it drives anything like the S60, it will be a winner. I have a 2012 S60 and I'm a first time Volvo buyer. What lured me to it over the BMW was the cabin comfort and excellent driving feel for a few thousands less than the competition. Every day, i look fwd to driving my car.

Interior is very different, and that is what people are looking for. I just don't like that gear stick is looking like manual. Automatic shifters are very good platform for design detail. But overall, many people are sick of Audi safe design, and just a few of us like 1series design. Good luck, and hope this company will rise much more.

I'm a little confused - now that Volvo isn't a part of the Ford Company, does it still share platform and parts? The profile and rear lights are very close to the Ford Focus, in my opinion. And Ford certainly seems to be taking advantage of technologies first produced by Volvo (BLIS, Adaptive Cruise Control, etc).

there might very well be some sharing still going on. Not because Ford sold Volvo means all contact ceases between the two companies. But certainly Ford will be guarded with its new tech since they won't want Volvo's new owners to get their hands on it... especially since the Chinese market is now the most important one worldwide

Agreed that the project sharing doesn't tend to cease directly upon the split, I wonder how long the 2 companies will continue to share intellectual property. Volvo is still high on my list of car companies for my next purchase but am unsure of the longevity of the company under current hands.

I have to say I really like this V40. There is imagination in the design which separates it from the poor looking 1-Series and the nice but very safely styled upcoming A3. The interior is another element of contemporary Volvos I like with the floating fascia panel. Very nice.
