New Volvo V40 Cross Country

The new Volvo V40 Cross Country will be launched at the Paris Motor Show.

The new Volvo V40 Cross Country will be launched at the Paris Motor Show. Designed to rival the BMW X1, the V40 is a more rugged version of the current V40 hatchback.

The Cross Country gets a 40mm increase in ground clearance, larger alloy wheels and chunkier bumpers.

The interior of the V40 Cross Country is almost the same as the regular V40, save for an exclusive copper interior colour.

The top of the range V40 Cross Country T5 is the only model to get four-wheel drive. It will be powered by a 250bhp 2.5-litre five-cylinder petrol engine and comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox only. The rest of the regular V40 engine range is available with front-wheel drive confirming the model's place as a crossover, rather than a mud-plugging SUV.

The most efficient engine will be the 113bhp D2 diesel, which claims 74.3mpg economy and emits 99g/km of CO2. Two more powerful diesels, with 148bhp or 175bhp, and a 177bhp 1.6-litre petrol will also be offered. Prices are expected to start at around £19,500 when the car arrives in the UK in January.
