Volvo XC40 review

Volvo is a brand that has stood for the most remarkable engineering. It is a designer that has gone out of the range to build cars for all segments. It has built the most stunning machines to arm the roads, blending style and speed, form and function for perfection in every amount. Established in Sweden in 1927, this car maker has stood for glory in the industry for almost a century now, refining and honing its craft to the highest of precision. Volvo has touched all barriers, but the one thing that the audience have long awaited from this manufacturer is soon to hit the streets. The Volvo XC40 is an all new model awaiting launch in India. The specialty of this machine is the fact that it is an luxury crossover SUV.

It is to hit Indian streets somewhere in late 2015, and it has already garnered much response from the auto enthusiasts. The machine was originally unveiled in 2012 at the 2012 Paris show, and it galvanized a greatly healthy response, prompting Volvo to take its production to the next stage. The machine will be competing against many other luxury SUVs, which are slated for a launch in India. Land Rover is soon to boost itself to the next level with the DC100, and Bentley is taking it to the next stage with the Bentayga, while Rolls-Royce is also planning an SUV. As a result, luxury car brands are locked in a titanic race towards unveiling the best luxury SUV crossover, and Volvo is keeping itself tight with this rat-race against its competitors who hold their own in the lion's share of the market.

Although the vehicle is only to hit the roads for the first time in a few months, speculations run high surrounding the vehicle, and it is geared up with the most energetic excitement surrounding it, as a result. The bodywork of the SUV is meant to draw inspiration and appeal from the stunning looks of another great Volvo car, the X40. Furthermore, it is rumored that it will have both petrol and diesel engines. The petrol trim is supposedly a 1.6-litre engine, while the diesel trim is a 2.0-litre power train. The inside of the machine is also expected to house the same functions and elegance as the V40, but sure to get additional features.

Talking of specifics regarding performance, the car is kept under wraps with all its features and aspects, but a few speculated rumors and figures have been dropping our way. As mentioned above, it is to come in two engine formats, like a 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 2-litre diesel engine. The diesel engine is likely to be turbocharged, with five cylinders. It is said that this mill goes with a displacement of 1948cc. Additional figures regarding this engine include a power of 147hp, and a torque of 350Nm. All of this is supposedly guided with the flawness shifting of a six speed automatic transmission. The diesel engine is to give a mileage value of 14.7kmpl. The engine also boasts great performance, sending the car to a top speed of 205kmph, and crossing naught to 100kmph within 9.3 seconds. The petrol engine is the same as that of the V40. It is said to have a displacement of 1596cc, in addition to a power of 180hp and a torque of 240Nm. It is to deliver a mileage of 12kmpl to 15kmpl. A top speed between 180kmph and 190kmph can be achieved by this mill, along with an acceleration rate of 8.5 seconds. All of this is enabled with the speculated transmission of a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Now, taking the car to a softer side, it is built on the same platform of body as the V40, and this guarantees a rather smashing appeal. The external build of this vehicle gathers a truly pleasurable appeal. It is shaped wide, stiff and is hefty. Its is meant to pose an intimidating and heavy structured format. It carries the same density in its exteriors, except being slightly smaller and more compact, making it unique in many manners. Its robust body condition allows it to hold its own against harsh weather conditions, and rough terrain. The side profile is emboldened by large fenders and prominent, high shaped wheels. The length of the body stretches out wide and impressively, giving it a rather sleek and stylish appearance. The front portion is complete with the signature radiator grille with chrome surround, with the company's emblem atop it. Its headlight cluster is to be incorporated with LEDs and bi-xenon lamps. The front bumper has a wide air intake, along with a pair of fog lamps. Aluminum protective cladding aids the front portion. The roof has a glossy black finish and silver garnished ski-racks. The model's side appeal is to be improved with the addition of a classy set of 17 inch or 18 inch wheels.

Getting to the softer feature, this is a brand that boasts elegance and fulfilled comfort for its cabin room. The Volvo XC40 is built on the same grounding as the V40, which was immense in terms of inner comfort. It is sure to have the most premium upholstery, along with the best of all materials selected to together decorate the cabin space. There are speculations about the specific selections of the accessories inside the vehicle, but we can only shoot guesses right now. It is sure to have a well designed instrument cluster, complete with an infotainment system, a three spoke steering wheel and other necessities every vehicle of the day faces. The center console is said to have a V shaped design, hosting features such as the AC control, the music system and numerous other functions. We expect ergonomically designed seats, large and well placed for comfort and optimum ride pleasure. Other standard features that are probably waiting to unveil themselves include power steering with tilt adjustment, a panoramic sun roof, electrically adjustable seats with memory function, power adjustable ORVMs, a sophisticated music and audio system and loads of other sophisticated elements. Safety is also a seal with Volvo, and there is no doubt that seatbelts, airbags and the firmest body composure will together protect the passengers all through the ride. It is quite possible that the machine is also armed with technological aids such as ABS and EBD for optimum stability in driving, although it is not known at this point.

All of this brought together, Volvo has cooked up one of the finest placements for the automotive market this year. The Volvo XC40 is surest to be a blend of the best features brought together for the most human touch in a machine. Fans and audiences expect a peak in the company's marvel with this all new SUV launch. A new generation of technology and innovation is to be set foot on with the release of this grand machine. The Volvo XC40 is unleashed on the roads sometime later this year, and as it does, the world sits by and watches the clock tick.
