Now, aside from the extra bits of plastic, it also gets a revised grille and front bumper, as well as side and rear skid plates, for when the going gets tough. Under the bonnet, it shares its engine range, with its road-orriented sibling, the regular V40. All engines come with stop start as standard, with the notable being the D2 diesel, which emits just 99 g/km of CO2, and the range-topping T5, which gets Volvo’s excellent-sounding 2.5-liter engine, which sends its power to all four wheels.
Expect it to go on sale near the end of the year, priced around €1,300 above the regular V40 hatchback.
