Volvo XC40 Bookings Now Open
Volvo is all set to launch their premium compact SUV the XC40 in July. Pre bookings for the Volvo XC40 is now open across Volvo dealerships across India. The Volvo XC40 can be now pre booked by paying Rs.5 Lakh and the deliveries will commence after launch thats scheduled for July 4th. The Volvo XC40 is the European Car of the Year 2018.
We have driven the Volvo XC40 and our extensive readiest review is up and kicking. Initial lot of 200 vehicles have been allowed for India as the XC40 is an CBU that would be fully imported. Volvo would be offering the XC40 in only one fully loaded R Design trim. We expect Volvo to price the XC40 extremely competitively as it goes head-on with the three Germans – Mercedes GLA, BMW X1 and the Audi Q3 that dominate the Premium Compact SUV segment currently. We expect Volvo to price the XC40 between Rs. 40 Lakh to Rs. 45 Lakh price range which should be an fantastic pricing for a product that come heavily loaded with tons of safety and comfort features.
The Volvo XC40 was launched late last year and India becomes one of the first countries to get the Premium Compact SUV. The Volvo XC40 joins the XC60 and the XC90 to complete the trilogy of the Volvo SUV range. Volvo has been fairly busy lately with their sales seeing a positive raise and demands soaring for their models here.
The Volvo XC40 comes powered by the 4-cylinder 2.0L D4 Diesel engine with 190Hp of power and 400Nm of torque under its belt. The transmission unit on this one is an 8-speed automatic unit. The XC40 also gets the Haldex all wheel drive unit transforming this into an mighty mean off-roader when needed.
The typical Volvo design language is evident on the XC40 and it looks a sure head turner with Thors hammer inspired headlights and robust styling. The overall styling is typical SUV and the drive style too feels like one. Watch this space for all the latest news on the Volvo XC40
