V40 up­dated

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Launch - HUONG - THOMAS

THE Volvo V40 hatch­back has been up­dated in T5 In­scrip­tion form, and its price is un­changed at RM180,888 (on-the-road with­out in­sur­ance, in­clu­sive of 6% GST).

It comes in four ex­te­rior colours in­clud­ing a new Lu­mi­nous Sand as well as Ice White, Onxy Black and Os­mium Grey.

As be­fore, the af­ter-sales pack­age in­cludes a five-year, un­lim­ited-mileage war­ranty and five-year Volvo On Call road­side as­sist.

In­scrip­tion de­notes the high­est trim level (Ki­netic, Mo­men­tum, and In­scrip­tion) within the Volvo prod­uct range.

This new up­date brings the pop­u­lar V40 hatch­back vis­ually closer to Volvo’s new 90 Se­ries cars.

High­lights in­clude the new In­scrip­tion grille mesh cradling the new Volvo Iron Mark and the ‘Thor’s Ham­mer’ head­lights, and a new In­scrip­tion “rank mark” which was first in­tro­duced in the XC90.

In the cabin, Milled Alu­minium re­places the Shim­mer Graphite in­lay and a new In­scrip­tion tread plate was added.

The new Volvo Iron Mark up­date is car­ried on the steer- ing wheel, Sen­sus dis­play, and the key fob.

The V40 T5 In­scrip­tion main­tains its 2.0litre turbocharged Drive-E pow­er­train which out­puts 245hp and 350Nm of torque, man­aged by an 8-speed gear­box.

This trans­lates to a 0-100kph sprint in 6.3 sec­onds.

It also re­tains its seg­ment-lead­ing ac­tive safety sys­tem, City Safety – Volvo’s um­brella term for Au­ton­o­mous Emer­gency Brak­ing (AEB) or Col­li­sion Avoid­ance and Mit­i­ga­tion tech­nolo­gies.

The V40 comes with Volvo’s award-winning CleanZone tech­nol­ogy which en­sures that out­side air is ef­fec­tively fil­tered be­fore en­ter­ing the cabin, re­mov­ing harm­ful pol­lu­tants.

“In Malaysia, the V40 is our best-sell­ing model af­ter the XC90. We hope that the new up­dates in the V40 T5 In­scrip­tion will make this very suc­cess­ful model even more at­trac­tive,” said Volvo Car Malaysia manag­ing di­rec­tor Len­nart Stegland.
