Swedish manufacturer Volvo, have revealed prices and specification for a range of new engines available for the XC40.
Fresh off the back of winning What Car? Car of the Year 2018 award, Volvo have looked to capitalise on the success of their compact SUV by revising and expanding the models available engines. The current selection of a T5 petrol, D4 diesel and T5 Twin Engine Plug-In hybrid will be expanded by the introduction of two more petrol’s and a diesel.
New Volvo XC40 Engines
Kicking off the petrol range will be the new T3. This will be powered by a turbocharged 1.5 litre three cylinder engine, which in theory is the same as the plug-in hybrid engine but without the additional electrical assistance. It produces 154bhp and 265Nm of torque which will translate into a 0-62mph of 9.4 seconds. Economy-wise the T3 will achieve 45.6mpg and will initially be twinned with a six-speed manual gearbox with an eight speed automatic made available in the future.
The other new petrol engine comes in the form of the T4. This will be powered by a more powerful 2.0 litre unit. The T4 comes with an automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. This provides a beefy 187bhp and a sharper 0-62mph time of 8.2 seconds. Economy figures come in at 40.9mpg.
Volvo XC40 Spec
The new D3 diesel model provides versatility and is on sale as a front wheel drive manual or an automatic available in either front or four wheel drive. The 2.0 litre diesel engine delivers 148bhp and 320Nm of torque. This enables the XC40 to be propelled from 0-62mph in an impressive 8.2 seconds, and when you combine this with economy figures of 58.9mpg (when choosing the manual) it’s evident that the D3 really is an all-round performer.
