The Cross Country is a sturdier edition of the latest Volvo V40, and is a big competitor for cars comprising the Audi Q3 and BMW X1.
The Cross Country bags a variety of cosmetic tweaks for a tougher appearance, comprising innovative bumpers and side sills with complementary inserts. There is an innovative front grille, rear ‘skid plate’ and new daytime running lights.
Aadded ground permission is rendered by a 4cm increase in ride tallness, whereas the V40 Cross Country pockets modified alloys and black door reflectors as well as roof rails.
The Cross Country will be obtainable with the identical series of engines as the regular V40. All editions will accompany a stop-start arrangement; the D2 diesel model gives off just 99g/km of carbon dioxide.
Top-spec 2.5-litre T5 models will be obtainable with four-wheel drive and a hill descent control system.
The Volvo V40 Cross Country will hit markets during late 2012.
Valuation and complete specs are yet to be disclosed.
Each and every model in the V40 Cross Country series receives stop-start as standard in conjunction with City Safe auto braking, Bluetooth, Pedestrian finding and the very intelligent pedestrian airbag.
The order book for the innovative Volvo V40 Cross Country unwraps by the coming month with initial UK deliveries proposed for January next year.
