An extended offer with further CO2 reductions are the major driveline news on the model year 2014 Volvo V40s. Buyers of the V40 also have the opportunity to choose the new Sensus Connected Touch system with unique on-line possibilities, including voice-activated Spotify.
Prices for the new engines, automatic option and Sensus Connected Touch will be announced during April and then be available to order immediately.
The V40 D2 and V40 R-Design D2 now benefit from being available to order with an automatic gearbox. CO2 emissions (EU Combined, preliminary figures) are 102g/km (72.4mpg) in the standard and R-Design versions and 108g/km (68.9mpg) in the V40 Cross Country.
Announced at the Geneva Motorshow, the manual versions of the V40 D2 and V40 D2 R-Design (115hp) now come with reduced CO2 emissions, down from 94g/km to 88g/km (EU Combined), which translates into a fuel consumption improvement of 4.6mpg, to 83.1mpg. The corresponding figures (preliminary) for the V40 Cross Country with the D2 engine are 99g/km (74.3mpg).
“By continuously cutting CO2 emissions, we demonstrate our leading position within fuel efficiency improvements,” says Doug Speck, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Car Group.
Available on the V40 and V40 R-Design, Volvo Cars has added a new variant of the four-cylinder, 1.6-litre engine to the range of direct-injected petrol engines. The Volvo V40 T2 has 120hp and 240 Nm of torque. CO2 emissions with the manual gearbox are 124g/km (EU Combined, preliminary figures), which translates into fuel consumption of 53.3mpg.
