While one Swedish automaker has had a well documented demise over the past few months, another has been quietly preparing its latest model. Volvo will be unveiling the V40 at the Geneva Motor Show next month and leading up to the event they have released another teaser image.

It follows an initial teaser image that was released late last year showing the whole model hiding under a cover.

The latest teaser reveals little more than we have seen already with only a silhouette from a front three-quarter position on show. However, this is the first time Volvo acknowledges the name as V40.

When the Volvo V40 is launched it is due to go head to head with their more illustrious rivals, namely the Audi A3 and BMW 1-series.
