Volvo V40 Cross Country India launch soon

Volvo V40 Cross Country India launch soon

The Volvo V40 Cross Country is an entry-level compact crossover – one that will compete with the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3. Also since it is a Volvo, it will also be a bit more affordable than its German rivals. This then is Volvo’s best bet to firmly establish itself in India. This spy pic from South India confirms that Volvo is thinking on the same lines as the V40 Cross Country CBU units have started arriving in Volvo dealerships in India.

The Cross Country is basically a toughened up version of the V40 hatchback with 40mm additional ground clearance. The looks of the car are also altered a bit to make it look a bit more rugged. The crossover gets bigger alloy-wheels with chunky tyres, body claddings, roof rails, skid plate and blackened rear view mirrors. 

The five-seater Cross Country comes with 40/60 folding rear seats for extra space. It is equipped with safety features like pedestrian detection, auto braking and city safety which have won the Euro NCAP Advanced Award. The V40 Cross Country is equipped with AWD and hill descent control for decent off-roading capabilities.

The European spec versions of the crossover are available with four diesel engine options in the range of 1.6-litres to 2.5-litres with varying outputs. However, in India we are expecting just the 1.6-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engine options.

The V40 Cross Country will be launched in India by March. We expect Volvo to price this car a notch above the Mercedes B-Class and below the BMW X1. This will also make it the new entry-level Volvo model in India.
