June 14, 2013 it is, when the much anticipated Volvo V40 Cross Country will make its Indian debut at the company's new showroom in Gurgaon. Volvo's Indian car line-up includes S60, S80, XC60 and XC90, the V40 Cross Country will be the most affordable Volvo car ever to lure young professionals. Volvo V40 Cross Country is basically an off-roading capable version of the V40 hatch, so, it enjoys image of being both an off-roading competent vehicle and luxury hatchback. This will also help Volvo to position the V40 against both the compact Crossovers (BMW X1, Audi Q3) and upcoming luxury hatchbacks including Mercedes-Benz A-Class and BMW 1-Series.
The company hasn't revealed the pricing of the car, we are expecting it to be priced somewhere around Rs. 25 lakh, which will help it lure more buyers and achieve the company's aim to enhance its numbers in the country. The India bound Volvo V40 Cross Country is likely to have a 2.0-litre D3 Diesel motor under the hood, which mated to a six-speed AT gearbox, honks 163bhp of power. The Volvo V40 Cross Country is a combination of impressive driving dynamics, interior comfort and a rugged character with low emissions, highly safe technology and impressive fuel efficiency, making it a great product overall.
When it comes to features, the V40 Cross Country has Start/Stop as standard across the range along with Bluetooth hands-free communication and wireless music playing and city safety auto-braking. Moreover, The V40 cross country is also known for having world-first pedestrian airbag and pedestrian detection technology. However, many of the aforementioned features have been given in the global version of the car, will they be offered with the Indian version as well, is still unknown.
