V40 Cross Country


Recommended Posts

4x4 & 2X4 Tonka Toys are being released by every manufacturer. Your range isn't complete without one in every size......

Volvo are the latest to join the fray, with offerings from Vaux/Ford/Pug/VW (and maybe even Alfa in the not too distant) etc you are spoilt for choice! If they are your thang!


Volvo is targeting the BMW X1 with this new V40 Cross Country, which will go on sale next month.

Based on Volvo’s new five-door hatch, the V40 XC features a 173mm ride height — a 40mm increase over the standard V40’s.

It also has a beefed-up appearance characterised by an alloy-style body kit. A black honeycomb grille and the option of 19-inch wheels on top-spec models are also new.

Despite its off-road pretensions, the V40 XC line-up will have only one all-wheel-drive model: a 250 bhp, 295 lb ft 2.5-litre T5 petrol available with a six-speed automatic gearbox. A 1.6-litre petrol and three diesels make up the rest of the range.

The V40 XC is tipped to carry a £2000 premium over a equivalent V40 hatch, suggesting a starting price 
of about £22k.
