Volvo V40 Facelift Arrives In Malaysia – Now with Thor’s Hammer Headlights +Video
The facelifted Volvo V40 has been officially launched in Malaysia. The hatchback is offered here in a T5 Drive-E variant with the Inscription trim level.
The most prominent feature of this latest update is the Thor’s hammer headlights, which flank the fresh Inscription grille that houses the new Volvo Iron Mark.
On the interior, Milled Aluminium replaces the Shimmer Graphite inlay and new Inscription tread plates have also been added. The new Volvo Iron Mark update will carry across the entire car including the steering wheel, Sensus display, and the key fob.
In terms of equipment, the new V40 now comes with CleanZone interior air quality system. The technology ensures that outside air is effectively filtered before entering the cabin, removing harmful pollutants that are increasingly common in large urban areas.
The V40 T5 will maintain the Drive-E powertrain consisting of a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 245 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Managed by an eight-speed gearbox, the hatchback sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds.
The car will also retain its segment-leading active safety system, City Safety – Volvo’s umbrella term for Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) or Collision Avoidance and Mitigation technologies.
The V40 T5 Inscription will be priced at RM180,888 (on-the-road without insurance, inclusive of GST). Customers will get to choose from four exterior colours: Ice White, Onxy Black, Osmium Grey, and the new Luminous Sand.
