The new Volvo V40 Cross Country is finally here. The Swedish carmaker revealed the first official images and details of their new achievement, the smallest crossover model they have ever built. So far, there were rumors according to which its name was going to be Volvo XC40, but now we know, it is V40 Cross Country. This is actually a more aggressive, taller version of the already existing Volvo V40 compact hatchback. The designers used the same philosophy they used for the XC70.
In the photos we can the chunky black cladding that surrounds the front and rear bumpers. These also feature silver colored protective plates, side sills and silver roof rails. The specialists have also offered a new set of newly designed alloy wheels and the ride is 40 mm taller in comparison with the current Volvo V40. In terms of interior, apparently the carmaker did not do a lot of modification, but only offered more vibrant color sections for the center console trim and for the upholstery.
Engine-wise, the new Volvo V40 Cross Country will be available with the same petrol and diesel units the standard V40 is available with. Actually, there is one that will not be offered. We are talking about the 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder T3 petrol which is capable of generating 148 horsepower. According to the carmaker the top of the range 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-five T5 engine will be only one that can be equipped with all-wheel drive. This one can develop 251 horsepower. The rest of the engines will only be available with front-wheel drive.
Before the end of this month, on the 27th, to be more precise, the Swedish carmaker will reveal the new Volvo V40 Cross Country at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and there are also no information revealing whether the model will be available outside Europe or not.
