The facelifted versions of the Volvo V40 and V40 Cross Country will soon be available in the Indian market, expected to launch somewhere around December.
The Volvo V40 and the V40 Cross Country have been on sale in India since 2015, and this is the first change both models will undergo since their launch in India.
The facelifted version of the Volvo V40 was showcased during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The changes are cosmetic updates, for the exterior and interior. The cars will retain its overall design and the most noticeable change will be the ‘Thor Hammer' headlights.
The cabin gets a few updates like a larger touchscreen system, updated digital display for the instrument cluster, and upholstery options.
In India, the Volvo V40 could be offered with a 2.0-litre diesel engine that makes 150bhp and 350Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
The V40 Cross Country will undergo or receive similar updates, and will be offered with the 2.0-litre diesel engine and a 1.6-litre petrol engine that produces 180bhp and 240Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Being entry level models for Volvo in India, the cars could see a price hike, but marginally. Both models will be sold in India as Completely Built Units (CBUs).
