Volvo XC40 Review: India Spec Driven
Posted 24 May 2018 05:22 PM

The Volvo XC40 compact SUV is the Scandinavian company's new baby - in every sense of the word. Being new it gets the very latest development the company has to offer - including a new platform. And it is literally the baby - being the smallest XC badged vehicle the company has ever made. For Volvo this is not a gamble, as investments to the new compact modular architecture are shared with parent co Geely; and compact SUVs are a global sweet spot - hence likely to generate good volume too. But we have told you all of this when the car debuted last year in Milan, and then again when we drove it in Europe during the global media drive. So what you want to know is what is India getting, right? Well I am here to tell you just that! The XC40 will arrive in the first week of July in just one trim, and with only one engine variant. That will be the D4 (2-litre diesel, 186 bhp, 400 Nm torque) dressed in the edgy and racy R-Design trim. The car takes on the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. The Range Rover Evoque, new Lexus NX and a car we still have not got - the Jaguar E-Pace also slot in here.
