Volvo has recently pulled the wraps off the updated V40 and V40 Cross Country which are now coming with even more goodies.
According to the Swedish based automaker, the updated Volvo V40 and V40 Cross Country are wearing the 2014 model year in their names and this means that they will become available for their future customers this year. Volvo says that the additional changes include the optional Sensus Connected Touch infotainment system, which is getting internet connectivity and a 7-inch touch screen display amongst others.
The two models in question can get the new 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine under their hoods, which is good for 120 HP (88 kW) and 240 Nm of torque (177 lb-ft), enough to allow the V40 to burn an average of 5.3 L of fuel every 100 km (53.3 mpg UK / 44.3 mpg US) and to emit 124 g/km of CO2. The D2 engine, with its 115 HP (85 kW), is now emitting 88 g/km of CO2 in the V40 and 99 g/km in the V40 Cross Country when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, while with the automatic, the CO2 emissions stop at 102 g/km in the V40 and 108 g/km in the V40 Cross Country. Additional details on the two models will be announced close to their launch.
