The 2014 Volvo V40 will be having more optional features as well as emit less carbon dioxide pollutants in the air. The Volvo V40 D2 and V40 R-Design D2 could now be ordered with an automatic gearbox paired with the engine. The standard and R-Design versions boast of carbon emissions (EU Combined, preliminary figures) of just 102g/km (72.4mpg).

The Volvo V40 Cross Country, meanwhile, has carbon emissions of 108g/km (68.9mpg).  As announced at the Geneva auto show, the manual versions of the V40 D2 and V40 D2 R-Design (115hp) now feature reduced carbon emissions from 94g/km to 88g/km (EU Combined), translating into a 4.6mpg improvement in fuel consumption to 83.1mpg.

The manual version of the Volvo V40 Cross Country with the D2 engine has carbon dioxide emissions of 99g/km (74.3mpg). Doug Speck, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Car Group, remarked that by continuously cutting CO2 emissions, Audi demonstrates its leading position within fuel efficiency improvements.

Available on the V40 and V40 R-Design, Volvo introduced a new variant of the four-cylinder, 1.6-litre engine to the range of direct-injected petrol engines. The Volvo V40 T2 engine provides up to 120hp of output and 240 Nm of torque. Carbon dioxide emissions with the manual gearbox are 124g/km (EU Combined, preliminary figures), translating into a fuel consumption of 53.3mpg.

Customers acquiring the 2014 Volvo V40 could choose the Sensus Connected Touch system that features distinct on-line possibilities like voice-activated Spotify.
