Much has been made in the comments about how much (or how little) the Volvo S40 and Mazda3 have in common. We think one particular comment by an Autoblog reader named Mike sums up our feelings on this debate: Any comparison between the two must be coming from the unfamiliar. Its true, these two cars share a platform and various components but the job done differentiating them is far from badge reengineering. Their relationship is less Ford Five Hundred to Mercury Montego than it is Audi A4 to Volkswagen Jetta. Were talking more than a new grille and taillamps here. The C1 chassis certainly cleans up well wearing Volvos stubby-yet-strong proportions and Scandinavian interior, but does the S40s on-pavement prowess finally settle any qualms created by its potentially $30k-plus pricetag? The core of the S40s fun factor can be found in its turbocharged 2.5L five-cylinder engine that produces 218 horsepower and 236 ft-lbs. of torque. Going with an odd number of cylinders is again one of those quirky, dare-to-be-different traits for which Volvo is well known, especially considering such engines in the past had a reputation for being unbalanced and thrashy. Those characteristics cannot be applied to Volvos five-pot powerplant, which exhibits little harshness in its operation. In fact, for a sporty sedan the S40 T5 is remarkably quiet with engine noise a distant hum until WOT is applied. Volvos addition of a light-pressure turbo makes this powerplant feel like a torquey V6 under your toes with all of its 236 ft-lbs. of torque available at a low 1500 rpm. Theres a whisper of turbo lag but the turbines relatively small size ensures theres no whiplash when it comes online. Our testers fuel mileage is rated at 20 city/29 highway, which isnt bad considering the extra 130 lbs. added by the all-wheel drive system and various other gravity-challenged safety and luxury amenities. Total tonnage is up to 3,447 lbs. for the T5 AWD model, about 169 lbs. more than FWD T5. Speaking of that AWD system, its a bit of a misnomer as the majority of time power is being routed almost entirely to the front wheels. During our dry week with the S40 T5 AWD the car exhibited all the normal FWD tendencies with understeer occurring when the car was pushed in corners. The AWD system is not a performance feature of the S40 T5, but rather a safety feature meant for sure footing in inclement weather. Though the 130 lb. penalty for its presence isnt severe, those seeking the fastest S40 should opt for the non-AWD model with the six-speed manual. Our S40 came with said six-speed manual transmission, an inclusion about which we were a bit conflicted. Given the choice well always go standard, but the S40s clutch was either instant-on or instant-off, which made enjoying the slick shifting six-speed a rarity.
