It's not quite witness-protection surgery, but the nips and tucks do edge the hoony version of Volvo S40's platform mate closer toward Ford Europe's "kinetic" styling ideal as expressed in the latest Mondeo. That by way of some clever sculptural details, including that yonic chasm under its license plate. Still, the 2.5-liter five-cylinder stays unmolested at 220+ horsepower. [AutoExpress via Autoblog]
