The XC40 SUV is available in a single variant, the R-Design trim, at an introductory price of Rs 39.90 lakh, ex-showroom (India). Volvo has already started accepting bookings for the XC40, for an amount of Rs 5 lakh.
The smallest SUV from the Swedish car manufacturer carries forward the company's signature upright design language. Volvo hopes that their new SUV will help provide a good push in terms of sales figures for the company.
The new Volvo XC40 will be powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine. It produces 190bhp and 400Nm of torque. This power is transmitted to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Exterior features on the new Volvo XC40 include a new distinctive black front grille, updated headlamps with a smoked effect and Thor's hammer LED DRL. The R-Design trim also comes with a dual-tone paint scheme. The XC40 also gets a blackened roof and A-pillars as standard across all colour choices.
Inside, the cabin receives black upholstery with lava carpeting and door inserts. Other standard features on the new Volvo XC40: nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system, smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, three-spoke steering wheel with leather stitching, virtual instrument cluster and a panoramic sunroof.
