      S/V40, any leaks?

      The very last secret model of this generation, where is it? Wish it be as phenomenon as XC90.

      While XC40 is really close to the CMA concept 1, I wish S/V40 is different than the CMA concept 2. Don't like the raked rear end, which is not practical at all.

      All we know to date is:
      - The current V40 will only be built until February 2019 (because contracts with Ford expire)
      - A new V40 is confirmed
      - The new V40 will be a different kind of vehicle than the current V40
      - The new V40 will be placed in a "growing and global segment"
      - Polestar will present the "2" in 2019 which is going to be a small sedan
      - Concept 40.2 is a small sedan and has a Polestar radiator grille

      If you're looking for some info on the 2020 V40, I think this might help:

      This is old rendering and nothing new. But I like it to be just squashed XC40, which means quite roomy in the trunk.
      Much more practical than the 40.2 concept hatchback.

      And I believe, XC40 design language is so successful they should use it on more models. And there are not many CMA cars after all.

      My future new car purchase will be a smaller and cheaper car, could be given to kids after several years.

      If they plan to start building new V40 next April, better leak some spy shots now.
