To get Volvo’s compact sedan with all-wheel drive you’ll have to choose the most-expensive trim level, T5 AWD R-design. The AWD S40 starts at $33,800, not including an $825 destination fee. This model only comes with a five-speed automatic transmission.


Little has changed on the 2009 S40 other than an added R-Design package, which is composed of appearance add-ons. For more information on the R-Design, see this post.
