    It isn’t easy for automakers to keep their upcoming models under wraps these days. While manufacturers would rather build our interest up for a new car with a slow trickle of teaser images until the wraps are pulled back, others would rather just release what few complete pieces of information they can get their hands on as soon as possible by whatever means necessary.

    So it isn’t much of a surprise Volvo’s new V40 five-door hatch has leaked out ahead of its reveal at the approaching Geneva Auto Show. Although there isn’t any official information or specifications, it’s safe to assume the V40 will compete against the likes of the Audi A3, the BMW 1-Series, and the Mercedes-Benz B-Class in the premium small hatch segment. We can also say that the styling is very interesting, with what appear to be a few small cues that nod to the old and beloved P1800ES two-door wagon.

    Since, of course, Volvo hasn’t officially revealed the car yet, there isn’t any word if it’ll be sold Stateside.

    I noticed the P1800 homage right off the bat, but the rest of the car is... well, I haven't been a fan of Volvo's styling direction this generation, and this isn't an exception.

    Very Bland styling, the continuation of DULL, DULL, DULL, but I bet they rant about how Safe it is. :P

    Wonder when we will see the real Chinese input happen.
