The Swedish based automaker Volvo has recently announced new engines for the V40 premium hatchback.
According to the car manufacturer, the Volvo V40 can now be ordered with the revised D2 unit, which is emitting just 88 g/km and it’s returning 83.1 mpg (UK). The unit can be mated to an automatic transmission for the first time. A new T2 engine, with 120 BHP, has also been introduced onto the lineup. The 113 BHP D2 automatic is emitting 102 g/km of CO2 and it’s returning 72.4 mpg (UK) in the standard V40, while in the 40 R-Design the CO2 emissions stop at 108 g/km and the fuel efficiency stands at 68.9 mpg.
The manual version of the 113 BHP D2 and D2 R-Design have also been upgraded and they are now returning 83.1 mpg and emitting 88 g/km of CO2, compared to their previous “performances” of 78.5 mpg and 94 g/km of CO2. The new T2 engine, with 120 BHP from the 1.6 liter petrol unit, is available on the V40 and V40 R-Design, with its 53.3 mpg and 124 g/km of CO2, mated to a manual transmission. The Volvo V40 can now be ordered with the Sensus Connected Touch system, which is turning your hatchback into a Wi-Fi hotspot and gives you access to plenty of apps.
