The new Volvo V40 Cross Country brings the unique blend of capable ruggedness and expressive elegance up to a new altitude by establishing the Cross Country name in the premium C-segment. Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy & Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Car Corporation said "the new V40 Cross Country is built on the heritage that started with the V70 Cross Country back in 1997. It is designed for those who want a sense of adventure in their everyday life."
The Volvo V40 Cross Country combines class-leading driving dynamics, interior comfort with low emissions (99g/km CO2 on D2 models), impressive fuel economy and pioneering safety technology. Start/Stop is fitted as standard across the range, together with Bluetooth hands-free communication and wireless music playing, plus City Safety auto-braking technology and the V40's world-first pedestrian airbag. The V40 Cross Country is also the only car in its class to be available with Pedestrian Detection technology.
The V40 Cross Country will be built alongside the standard V40 and R-Design models at Volvo Car Corporation's production plant in Ghent, Belgium. Prices will be announced and orders taken in early October, with production starting in November. Customer deliveries are expected to start during January 2013.
