Volvo’s offensiveness in India was witnessed with regards to the propone launch of new XC90, and also its confirmation for more international models coming soon, where a one is the V40 hatchback. Yes, that’s right; the maker has introduced only the Cross Country version of the V40 in India which rivals with compact SUV of German brands. But to take the fight on another level, it planned to introduce the V40 standard hatchback that will penetrate Volvo deeper in the market at a price point lesser than that of present entry-level.
However, for the international markets, Volvo had introduced the V40 Carbon, which to go with the title holds roof and mirror caps made out of carbon fiber. This new special Volvo is actually a joint-product of the carmaker and Polestar Performance. To further demonstrate the title, and add spice garnish to the package, black accents are seen across the car where not to forget the tail pipes are blackened, the unique 19-inch set of wheels acts as icing on the cake.
Inside the cabin, V40 Carbon houses various changes, but the carbon made door sills and red seat belts are some significant components among the others.
The engine bay of V40 Carbon will hold two options, T5 and D4. The former produces 253bhp and 400NM of torque, which is almost 25bhp and 50NM more than the standard variant. On the other side, D4 too delivers the similar result with an increase in power of 16bhp and 40Nm torque, totals at 200bhp and 440NM.
Hence, Volvo had confirmed the production of V40 to remain restricted only to 343 units, which will get sold in its home country – Sweden, Netherlands, Finland, France and Japan.
