The Volvo V40 is a small family car (C-segment in Europe) manufactured and marketed by Volvo Cars from 2012 to 2019.[1] It was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and has been on sale in Europe Between May 2012-2019, and the United Kingdom between August 2012-2019.[4][5]

Models[edit]

V40[edit]

The V40 was designed by American Chris Benjamin, the interior is the work of Pontus Fontaeus, and was the last Volvo to be designed under Peter Horbury, before he moved to Volvo's parent Geely.[6] It is built on the Global C platform with modifications to the electric power steering, and revised spring and damper settings.[5]

The engine lineup at launch are: two petrol engines; a 1.6 litre EcoBoost I4 producing either 150 or 180 hp, dependent on specification, and a 2.5 litre Volvo B525 I5 producing 254 hp, and two diesel engines; a 1.6 litre PSA Peugeot Citroen / Ford Duratorq engine, which produces 115 hp, whilst only emitting 94 g/km of CO2,[7] and a 2.0 litre I5 Volvo diesel engine available in two versions, 150 hp and 177 hp.[8] In some countries, the V40 T5 uses a 2.0 litre I5 (B5204T9) producing 213 hp @ 6000 rpm and 300 nm from 2,700 to 5,000 rpm.

From the model year of 2014, Volvo has begun fitting its in house developed Drive E (VEA) diesel and petrol engines to the V40. As of January 2015, these engines are available in the new V40 D4 (replacing the previous five cylinder D4) and V40 T5 (replacing the petrol five cylinder T5). Also available is the IntelliSafe safety precrash system.

Available in both the V40 and V40 Cross Country bodies, the D4 Drive E includes a four cylinder twin turbo diesel engine rated 190 PS (140 kW; 187 hp) and 400 N⋅m (295 lb⋅ft), a six speed manual transmission tuned for improved fuel economy, pressure feedback from each fuel injector, reduced friction, and a smart valve solution on the cooling system for a more rapid heat up phase after a cold start.

The T5 Drive-E includes a four cylinder turbo petrol engine rated 243 PS (179 kW; 240 hp) and 350 N⋅m (258 lb⋅ft), with eight speed automatic transmission.[9][10]

These new engines replace the older, but identically branded, five cylinder engines. After introduction of the VEA D4 and T5, the 1.6 D2 and 2.0 five cylinder D3 are replaced with VEA 2.0 D2 and D3 engines. The 1.6 EcoBoost and 2.0 five cylinder are replaced with VEA 2.0 T2, T3, and T4 engines. For some petrol automatic models, a de stroked version of the VEA 2.0, with 1.5 litre displacement, is used for T2 and T3

Volvo V40 Cross Country (2013–present)[edit]

The Cross Country is a version of the Volvo V40 with protective body panels, bigger wheels and tyres along with an increased ride height. Its T4 and T5 petrol variants feature Haldex Gen-5 All Wheel Drive as an option, along with hill descent control. The V40 Cross Country is equipped with more powerful engines than the regular V40[11][12][13][14]

In June 2013, Volvo launched the V40 Cross Country in India, and is priced at Rs. 28.5 lakh.[15]

2016 facelift[edit]

A facelifted V40 made an appearance. This new version of the V40 includes the Thor's hammer headlights on all variants of V40, as featured on the XC90 II, S90 II and V90 II. Also added the option opened for straw patterns on the interior seats.
