Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT -

ONE OF THE SEA­SON'S most talked about car re­leases is Swedish car­maker Volvo's new com­pact SUV, XC40, also mark­ing Volvo's bullish ex­pan­sion in the lux­ury au­to­mo­bile seg­ment in In­dia. Char­ac­terised by a su­per slick Scan­di­na­vian de­sign, a Volvo trade­mark, the XC40 is styled to per­fec­tion, both on the out­side and in­side. e in­te­ri­ors are de­cid­edly pre­mium, with the un­mis­tak­able bright red ac­cents and the dash­board comes power-packed with but­tons and touch screens that will have a tech-geek rav­ing, in­clud­ing a set of Har­man/Kar­don speak­ers. Un­der the hood, the car is pow­ered by a 2.0 litre, four-cylin­der diesel en­gine with a 0-100 kmph ac­cel­er­a­tion of 7.9 sec­onds. Other safety fea­tures in­clude Volvo's Pi­lot As­sist, Adap­tive Cruise Con­trol, Pedes­trian, cy­clist and an­i­mal de­tec­tion for city driv­ing and Lane Keep­ing Aid.

With these looks and fea­tures, and a su­perbly at­trac­tive price tag of `40 lakh, the XC40 is sure to change the en­try-level SUV seg­ment in In­dia. olvo­
