2018 Volvo XC40 spotted testing

2018 Volvo XC40 spotted testing

The 2018 Volvo XC40 has been spotted testing in Europe. Based on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform, this all-new crossover will be launched in India next year, positioned below the XC60. 

The test mule was reportedly on its way back to the Volvo and Geely’s facility in Sweden, where the brand’s vehicles are developed and manufactured. While Volvo’s new products like the XC90 and the S90 are based on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), the CMA has been developed for more affordable offerings. This platform will also be used by Chinese manufacturers - Geely and ‘Lynk and Co’ for their new products.

However, the spy shots show that the XC40 does carry over the design language from its bigger siblings, including the ‘Thor’s hammer’ headlamps and the traditional grille. Even the tail lamps sport the familiar look. Under the hood, we expect the XC40 to get a slew of three-cylinder and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. 

According to reports, the Volvo XC40 is production ready and will be unveiled later this year as a 2018 model. With a surge in demand for crossovers, the Volvo XC40 will be one of the biggest volume generators for the brand. We can expect an Indian debut a couple of months after it goes on sale in Europe.
