For 2017 Model Year, Volvo Cars has redefined its top-selling Volvo V40 and Volvo V40 Cross Country that are part of its newest offerings. Key exterior updates on the vehicles include the new LED Thor’s Hammer headlights that provide a bolder appeal similar to the new XC90, V90, and S90.
The V40 and the V40 Cross Country are the first models in the segment to be installed with all-LED features in the United Kingdom (UK) as part of its standard offering. The Volvo Iron Mark is also upgraded to have a more striking look together with fresh grille meshes.
According to Volvo Cars UK Managing Director Nick Connor, the V40 is the car maker’s best-selling vehicle in the UK. With the modifications specifically made for Model Year 2017, Volvo Cars has made the vehicle more appealing to potential buyers.
Other updates on the V40 and the V40 Cross Country include eight new wheels and five new finishes. The V40 range is available in new Amazon Blue and Denim Blue colors, as well as in the Volvo classic colors Mussel Blue, Bursting Blue, and Luminous Sand shades.
Volvo Cars has also equipped its latest offerings with improved and more innovative engineering as well as with reduced carbon emissions with its D2 manual powertrain.
For all trim levels and wheel options, the vehicles emit only 89 g/km of carbon. The structure of the trim was also modified as inspired by the new XC90. The V40 comes in several versions: Momentum and Inscription, along with the R-Design and the Cross Country. Volvo Cars also adapted the City Weave upholstery of the Volvo Concept Estate.
The interior panel trims will be available in Black Grid Aluminum, Milled Aluminum, and Stealth Aluminum. The R-Design and the Inscription trim options come with new tread plates. Moreover, the key fob was also integrated with the new Volvo logo.
