Volvo S40 faces makeover - pics

Volvo S40 to get fresh look

Catching spy-shots of the Swedes is always a tricky thing! Our spies made it anyway and caught this prototype of a facelifted Volvo S40 during a lonely ride through the cold, cold night far above the Arctic Circle.

What we can see is the more profiled nose of the car as well as modified air-intakes on the lower part of the bumper.

The black bars below the headlights are fake and the actual shape of the tiny spoiler lip on the lower edge of the front skirt as well as the door sills are yet hidden by black tape ? a clear hint that modifications will be done here, too.

The rear bumper, on the other hand, seems to be characterised by additional reflectors in the future ? likely because there?s not enough room anymore in the taillights which themselves will be re-designed.

We don't expect much to change under the bonnet, but interior might be getting a slight makeover.

The chic centre console, however, will definitely not be replaced!
