Volvo XC40 D4 AWD

Car India - - BULLETIN -

Volvo Auto In­dia have launched their com­pact lux­ury SUV, the XC40, with the D4 AWD pow­er­train in three vari­ants after get­ting 200 or­ders in two weeks for the ini­tial R-De­sign. It is priced at Rs 39.90 lakh for the Mo­men­tum, Rs 42.90 lakh for the R-De­sign, and Rs 43.90 lakh for the top-of-the-line, all ex-show­room.

The all-new Volvo XC40 is the first SUV built on the Swedish ma­jor’s new Com­pact Mo­du­lar Ar­chi­tec­ture (CMA). The plat­form al­lows for scal­a­bil­ity across var­i­ous di­men­sions such as wheel­base and track width. The ar­chi­tec­ture also al­lows for a pure com­bus­tion en­gine, plug-in hy­brid or full elec­tric driv­e­train ap­pli­ca­tion. After win­ning sev­eral ac­co­lades world­wide, its most re­cent achieve­ment was a five-star safety rat­ing in Euro NCAP, mak­ing it the lat­est Volvo to join the five-star club.

The D4 AWD pow­er­train pairs the 1,969-cc in-line four tur­bod­iesel en­gine, mak­ing 190 PS and 400 Nm, with the eight-speed torque-con­verter au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and the lat­est Haldex all-wheel drive. It brings sev­eral class-lead­ing fea­tures such as drive modes with an Off-road mode, Hill De­scent con­trol, ac­tive bend­ing full-LED head­lamps, Adap­tive Cruise Con­trol, a pre­mium au­dio sys­tem with an air sub-woofer, a huge touch­screen cen­tre dis­play, key­less en­try and drive, a power tail-gate, wire­less charg­ing, and a panoramic sun­roof, among other fea­tures in the top two vari­ants, with the en­try Mo­men­tum trim only get­ting a few dif­fer­ent fea­tures; for in­stance, nor­mal cruise con­trol, no ac­tive chas­sis, and dif­fer­ently de­signed 18-inch wheels.
