Volvo V40 Cross Country won’t be launched in the United States image

The Swedish based automaker Volvo has recently announced that the V40 Cross Country won’t be launched in the United States.

Most European based automakers are avoiding launching their new models in the United States and Volvo isn’t an exception either. After the Volvo V40 Cross Country has been officially revealed just a few days ago, ahead of its public debut on the 27th of September during the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the model is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker announcing that it has no plans to launch the vehicle in the United States.

The Volvo V40 Cross Country is coming with a new front bumper, a new rear bumper, redesigned side skirts, a front grille with a different design, body-colored rims, a 40 mm increased ride height and some other minor features. Under the hood, the Volvo V40 Cross Country will receive the same engines as the regular version, the five-door hatchback, except for the 150 HP 1.6 liter T3 unit. An all-wheel drive system will only be available for the top of the line 254 HP T5 engine. Additional details on the Volvo V40 Cross Country will be announced at the Paris Motor Show next week.
