The once-conservative Swedes are baring it all at the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show when they bring sexy back at the world debut of the all-new V40. Their latest premium hatchback from Volvo looks like of a love-child of the C30 and S60, boasting more curves and spunk than ever before seen on a Volvo. Intriguingly, they've opted to bring out the five-door version first before the more customary four-door sedan. But when you see just how foxy the all-new V40 is, it's easy to understand why Volvo went with this choice.
Its front end borrows some cues from the more accomplished S60 - mostly around the general area of the hood, grill, and headlights. What sets it apart though is its radically-aggressive front bumper that's ready to cut anything that stands in its path. But as inventive as the Swedes are with their furniture, the all-new V40's squiggly LED daytime running lights sadly fails to impress.
