The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Volvo Cars has launched its first three-cylin­der en­gine in the Drive-E pow­er­train in the XC40.

The 1.5-litre, three-cylin­der, di­rect-in­jec­tion petrol en­gine comes with a six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion, with an op­tional eight-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion that will fol­low later.

Volvlo said the small en­gine was de­signed to in­te­grate with the Twin En­gine plug-in hy­brid cars.
