Volvo S40 coming to the US?
A few Volvo execs are supposelly pushing the brand to sell their new small S40 in the US.
Same people who are responsible for bringing us the V60 wagon next year.
“The V40 is a great small vehicle, and we would love to have it here”. Says Mr. Tassos Panas from Volvo US.
Sure. So do I.
But 1st they would have to homologate it. Which isn’t cheap. Although it is scheduled to get the new family of 4 cylinder engines next year. And the engines are US ready, since they will also be used in their other models.
So why no.
They are mostly scared of not selling it. Since everyone still thinks the US market doesn’t like hatchbacks.
It would mostly compete here with the Audi A3. Which sold less than 10 000 units in the US and Canada last year…
