Paris Motor Show LIVE: Volvo V40 Cross Country

The Volvo V40 Cross Country has been officially presented to the public at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, in a world premiere.

The Swedish based automaker says that the Volvo V40 Cross Country is the second body style of the compact vehicle and the exterior design is reminding us of the XC70. The main differences between the regular version of the Volvo V40 and the V40 Cross Country will be the front grille with a different design, the side skirts, the front and rear bumper, the 40 mm increased ride height, the body colored rims and some other minor tweaks.

The Volvo V40 Cross Country is coming with an interior design similar to the one used by the regular V40 and the model is offering new inserts on the center console. The V40 Cross Country will receive all engines from the V40 hatchback, except for the 1.6 liter T3 unit with its 150 HP. All-wheel drive will be offered on the top of the line 254 HP T5 equipped versions, as the company has announced. Additional details on the Volvo V40 Cross Country are limited for the moment and are expected to be announced later on this year, when the model should be launched across Europe.
