My current status does not allow me to send and receive PM's. I have been a member for over 7 years now but have not posted but have been actively following the forum all these years. Do let me know if there is another way that i can get on the volvo owner's group.

I will post pics a little later during the week because of my work schedule and an impeding visit to Thirumala.

I got a great deal on the Volvo 40 CC T4 because it was a petrol. We come from a family whose diet consists of Diesel. This was picked over the B-class and the Mini Cooper S because
1.) B-class was extremely staid and a big bore to drive.
2.) The guys at KUN exclusive here in chennai were acting pricey to give the car for a test drive.

Hey ninjax, I'm currently contemplating between the V40-R Design(Diesel) & the V40 Cross Country(Petrol) The R Design's ground clearance is not so great & I'm leaning more towards the CC.
1) Does it clear speed breakers & pot holes easily or do you have to manoeuvre around them?
2) Is the Petrol version still available for sale or is stock being cleared? A couple of sites list only the D3 version although the Volvo site lists the T4
3) Lastly, what kind of discounts are on offer?

V40 cross country is available only in D3 version.
V40R Design is in Petrol.
About ground clearance issue, ninjax may give better idea.

Think you've got it the other way around. The V40 is available only in Diesel. The sales guy reiterated that twice; The V40CC on the other hand, has both the D3 & T4.

Have you checked with dealer?
Here CC is available only in D3.
V40 is also in Petrol T4.
Anyway, which one you are finalising??
I am using CC D3 since last 8 months, clocked 25 K Kms & I am loving it.

I'm taking the test drives this weekend, hopefully will decide by then *fingers crossed*! There was a V40 R-Design at the showroom & its absolutely gorgeous, the only downer was the Ground Clearance (~155) It'll pretty much scrape the bottom all over Bangalore's "backbreakers".

If you don't mind, can you please give me a ballpark figure on the discounts being offered on the V40 T4? I'm currently evaluating getting one.

I shamelessly asked for 25% and ended at 10% and got the insurance done outside and saved a lakh on it. I would suggest you start the bargaining from the 18th of the month and try to wrap the sale by the end of the month. I had the advantage of September-6 month closing.

I found the R design ground clearance to be too low for the roads of Madras. The CC would make more sense.
1.) My other drives are the Yeti, the Endy and the XUV so i find the the GC to be a bother. However the GC is not as bad as it looks. normal speed breakers are alright, I have a slight issue with the ramp leading to my house but am working on getting around it.
2.) The petrol is available only on the Cross country and if you are able to find a petrol, kindly bargain the hell out of it as Petrols clearly don't sell easily.
3.) i had a 10% discount on the invoice price and the insurance was done at 50k thereby saving me another 1 L off the total price.

The R design has a 135 mm GC if my memory serves me right. A friend has the V40 D3 and finds the underbody scraping the speedbreakers if he is careless.

The new Volvo V40 is here.
It is quite a looker!
One of the best looking and proportioned car in recent times.

Looks very similar to the existing model barring the Thor hammer style headlamps and a new front bumper. Also the LED DRLs from the bumper have been removed. Wonder when this facelift will hit India.

Hello guys!

I purchased a V40 R–Design a few months back, I thought you guys would appreciate the car as much as I do

Tidbits:

I got the Polestar upgrade (180bhp + ~400Nm)
Senses Connected Touch (rooted)
It has a K&N Filter
Just got a custom exhaust installed, and trying to source a Heico quad sport exhaust

Here is an album of her first track day.

Let me know if you guys want more pictures!

My very short review: The car is an absolute pleasure to drive. The gearbox is definitely not as quick as I'd like, but it puts down power REALLY well, if you know when and where to floor it. The wave of power is downright addicting. It's pretty good around corners. The interior of the R–Design has really soft napa leather as standard, and the Sensus Connected Touch and speakers are brilliant. Nothing like a native Spotify client. If you guys have any questions, ask away.
