At the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show, Volvo will be unveiling the all-new V40 and they have done a pretty good job of keeping it under wraps. It was only yesterday that they released their own teaser on Facebook and the first time they acknowledged the name the model was going to carry. They also released a silhouette to give a little more substance to the announcement.

Unfortunately for the Swedish brand, the cover may well have been blown following this alleged image of the V40. French magazine L'Automobile has got hold of what appears to be a low resolution image of the unreleased model showing it from a rear three-quarter position.

The V40 is Volvo's answer to the Audi A3 Sportback and the BMW 1-Series, it is due to be launched across Europe in the summer with prices starting at around €26,000.
