    Volvo V40 launched at Rs 24.75 lakh

    Volvo has just launched the V40 hatchback at Rs 24.75 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the Indian market. The V40 is the standard version of the V40 Cross Country currently sold in the country.

    The V40 appears to be quite similar to the Cross Country, but misses out on the body cladding and raised ride height of its sibling.

    The V40 is available in two trims – Kinetic and R-Design – both of which are powered by the 147.5bhp D3 diesel engine from the V40 Cross Country mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. In terms of features, both trims get Volvo’s City Safe system along with ABS, traction control, and airbags – front, side, curtain and pedestrian as standard. Other features include dual zone climate control, powered front seats with memory, mood lighting and parking sensors.

    The R-Design trim additionally gets some visual differentiation like a blacked-out grille and air dam, new alloys, panoramic glass roof and a new paint shade. In terms of features the R-Design gets the addition of keyless go, park assist and rain sensing wipers.

    The Volvo V40 will rival the likes of the Mercedes A-class and BMW 1-series in the market.The car is currently built and imported from Belgium in the form of CBUs with no plans for local assembly in the near future.

    Volvo has also announced that only 300 units of its new XC90 will be offered to customers in India this year. The original plan was to make 500 units available, but a strong international demand prompted the company to cut down on the allotted amount.

    Prices of Volvo V40 (ex-showroom, Delhi)
    Volvo V40 Kinetic – Rs 24.75 lakh
    Volvo V40 R-Design – Rs 27.7 lakh

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.
