Volvo V40 Cross Country coming to India

 

 

Date of Launch 14th June 2013, Expected price: Rs. 27-30 lakh [Updated 27/05/2013]

 

The Paris Motor Show this year is shaping up to be a much desired conjecture especially with international auto manufacturers the likes of Volvo, who have already made their presence felt in India, and are now looking to exploit new segments and unchartered territories both internationally and more so within their own creative circles.

 

More importantly for India, the big news straight from the glossy show floors at the ongoing Mondial de l’Automobile is that the Swedish car maker has confirmed that it will indeed be bringing its V40 Cross to India in the first or second quarter of 2013 with an unveiling early that year.

 

This third variant of the V40 model which was recently launched at Paris according to Volvo India officials is targeted against the Mercedes B-Class and the BMW X1 and believe it or not will in all probabilities be priced slightly lower than both these entry level luxury vehicles which hover around the 23-27 lakh price range for the their base variants.

After paving the way for a totally new segment with the V70 Cross Country when it was launched in 1997, Volvo is looking at starting a new chapter with the all-new Volvo V40 Cross Country almost 15 years later.

 

Although elegant in appeal and style the Cross Country mind you is a far more rugged and sportier version of the original V40 model and features unique details such as silver roof rails, 19-inch alloy wheels, a honeycomb mesh grille and upright day-running lights, a contrasting rear bumper and integrated skid plates that set it apart visually from the toned down standard version of the V40 model series.

The all-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
