Volvo V40 Cross Country Coming In 2013
Volvo has just release images and details of the V40 Cross Country. It is a revival of the V70 where the standard V40 will ride 40 mm higher with up to 19-inch rims, a honeycomb mesh grille, upright DRL-lights, contrasting sills and a new rear bumper with integrated skid plate. Inside there will be the Raw Copper exterior launch colour echoed by contrasting stitching. This V40 Cross Country will feature a Copper Dawn centre stack inlay, while the leather upholstery will come in 5 different versions, including the Espresso Brown accent colour. What’s more interesting is that the interior lighting is designed to give it a “theatre lighting” feel which will feature 7 different mood light options. Under the hood, the five-cylinder 2.5-litre T5 engine will have a power output of 254 hp and 400 Nm of torque, including 40 Nm overboost delivered during acceleration. It comes with automatic transmission and acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 6.1 seconds. Fuel consumption is 7.8 l/100 km (EU Combined).
The T5 will also be sold as a 2.0-litre version with 213 hp and 300 Nm of torque for certain markets. There is also the T4, a 1.6-litre GTDi engine with 180 horsepower and maximum torque of 270 Nm, including 30 Nm overboost. Fuel consumption is 5.5 l/100 km. A 2.0-litre five-cylinder T4 engine with 180 hp and 300 Nm of torque will also be available in certain markets.
