Congrats man on getting the v40. It's my dream car. Let's see when will the time come. BTW you got the v40 or the v40 cross. Have read that the v40 comes with very less ground clearance.

Please post detailed review. There is no official review on V40 in Team-bhp. Only user experiences will help others to buy and maintain this car well.

...which is one of the most sorted dynamic platforms in the European market. The Golf comes close but the Focus platform takes the biscuit.

XC40 is launching next year - true. However there is no news of the V40 on CMA platform. I think it is going to take a while as they just refreshed it this year.

You are right.XC 40 and S40 will be unveiled in geneva motor show next month and will be available later this year in Europe.There won't be a new V40 soon.

Visited Artemis Volvo here in chennai today. Took the v40 CC d3 for a long test drive. Loved it and long story short, my heart is set on it.

The sales exec told me the price was close to 41 on Road now and said no discounts were happening. Of course I expected this on a first encounter - but I wanted to ask you all what discount I should push for realistically. Towards the end he said if a “corporate” placed an order for enough numbers that warranted a discount he would try and get me some discount by adding my order to the group.

I’m picking it up in December. Advice on how low I can push the price would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Thats how they always start, you can get 10% off on the ex-showroom very easily, as an earlier customer, i can tell you that.

I closed the V40 Cross Country D3 Inscription for 37,33,000 which is 3L cheaper than the 40,33,000 official on-road price. Paid downpayment for booking and will arrange the rest via financing via my company. I'm going to take delivery mid November since I'm travelling till then.


For the exterior I'm going with "Metallic Denim Blue" which is basically really dark blue but I guess it needs a fancy name. for the interior I chose the "Burnt Umber" leather, which is basically a darker version of tan.
