Volvo V40 Cross Country for India

28th Sep 2012 8:42 pm

The new V40 crossover is likely to hit showrooms by March 2013. We expect the 2.0-litre D3 diesel motor to power the Volvo here.


Volvo has confirmed its new V40 Cross Country will make it to Indian shores by March 2013. This new contender in the premium crossover/soft-roader market will compete with the likes of the BMW X1 and Mercedes B-class.

Based on Volvo’s new five-door V40 hatch, the next-gen Cross Country gets a range of cosmetic tweaks for a more rugged look, including new bumpers and side sills with contrasting inserts. There's a new front grille, rear 'skid plate' and new daytime running lights. It also sports a 173mm ride height, as well as a beefed-up appearance, characterised by an alloy-style body kit. The V40 Cross Country brings a unique combination of rough terrain ability and elegant design.

When it comes to India, it is likely that the 163bhp 2.0-litre D3 diesel motor, coupled to a six-speed auto ’box, will power the V40 Cross Country. Prices and specifications are yet to be revealed but we expect the feature-rich V40 Cross Country to carry a sticker price in the range of Rs 30 lakh.
