Default Updated Volvo V40 range launched in India

Volvo has launched the updated V40 and V40 Cross Country in India. Prices of the V40 start from Rs. 25.49 lakh, while those of the V40 Cross Country start from Rs. 27.2 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The V40 hatchback is still the most affordable Volvo car sold in the country.

The updated cars come with Volvo's latest Thor's hammer headlights that were previously seen on the S90 and XC90. Both updated models also get a redesigned front grille and a new set of alloy wheels. On the inside, the V40 is offered with 3 leather trims, while the V40 Cross Country gets 5 leather trim options. Features on offer include a digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, electrically operated front seats, rear parking camera, park assist and a panoramic sunroof.

Volvo has equipped the V40 range of cars with various passive and active safety features like a pedestrian airbag, 2-stage front airbags, driver knee airbag, front seatbelt pretensioners, dynamic stability & traction control, anti-lock braking system (ABS) and emergency brake assist.

Powering the V40 is a 2.0-litre D3 diesel engine that churns out 148 BHP and 320 Nm of torque. The V40 Cross Country also gets a T4 petrol engine, which is a 2.0-litre unit rated at 177 BHP and 240 Nm. Both these engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Variant-wise ex-showroom Delhi prices of the updated V40 range are:
• V40 D3 Kinetic - Rs. 25.49 Lakh
• V40 D3 R-Design - Rs. 28.53 Lakh
• V40 CC T4 Momentum - Rs. 27.2 Lakh
• V40 CC D3 Inscription - Rs. 29.4 Lakh

I am so glad to see Volvo still taking safety so seriously even under their new owners from the far east. I am quite certain that almost every other manufacturer would have launched it in India minus the pedestrian airbag if not without the driver knee airbags. I know that there will be doubts regarding the pedestrian airbag firing on the smallest of provocation but the technology will get better and I think it's a great step in the right direction.

In a country with the highest number of road accident deaths, we should really appreciate and encourage manufacturers who give emphasis to safety and do not downgrade their safety equipment list when they bring their vehicles here. Some even downgrade the quality of metal used.

The pricing is great too. If I were in the market for a car in this price range and lived in a populous cities like Mumbai and Kolkata, i'd love to buy this one.

A friend got the preface lift V40 CC for 34lac OTR! Think it was a sweet deal.
Guess the Thor lights takes this to another level with respect to looks.
