After it was officially presented to the public back in March during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Swedish based automaker Volvo is once again placing the V40 model into the spotlights, by announcing its British debut during the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

According to the car manufacturer, besides the V40 hatchback, Volvo will also bring the V60 plug-in diesel hybrid at the same automotive even in the United Kingdom.

As a quick reminder, the Volvo V40 has already been priced in the UK, where the model can be bought from 19,745 GBP on the road, for the entry-level version.

For these money, customers will get the 1.6 liter diesel engine which is developing a total output of 112 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 199 lb-ft (270 Nm), mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission. The entry-level version of the Volvo V40 is also getting a start/stop system which is helping the hatchback’s fuel consumption (78.5 mpg / 3.6l/100km) and CO2 emissions (94 g/km).
The Volvo V40 will be available in the UK in three trim levels, the ES, the SE and the SE Lux, and its customers will get a choice of five engines, two petrol burners and three diesels.
