Volvo V40 Gifted With 190 HP Diesel Engine With Average Fuel Consumption Of 3.3 l/100 km
|   Thursday, April 10, 2014
Volvo sets out to improve its range in 2014: the V40 model is to receive a diesel version, which looks fantastic paper, and upper segment models get an optional Inscription package, that raises the level of materials and quality, both interior as well as on the outside.

The month of May will be an important one for the Volvo V40. The compact belonging to the Swedish brand will receive the new diesel engine range Drive-E, developing 191 horsepower.
Covered by the D4 logo, it is part of the new Volvo engine family developed in-house. This engine manages to lower the level of emissions for the manual transmission version to just 85 grams of CO2 / km, and has an average fuel consumption of 3.3 liters / 100 km.

An analysis of direct competition in the segment shows that the nearest competitor as far as fuel consumption goes in the diesel engine section, is the 2.0 l TDI unit, making 170 horsepower, found on the Audi A3. However, the difference between the two models is almost a liter (3.3 liters / 100 km vs. 4.1 liters / 100 km).

"Their outstanding take-off and responsiveness, combined with a smooth engine sound, will make the nimble V40 cars even more fun to drive, without compromising on modern customers' demand for superb fuel economy and minimised CO2-emissions," stated Michael Fleiss, Vice President Powertrain at Volvo Car Group.

Volvo officially announced the launch of a higher equipment level for the models XC60, V70, XC70 and S80. This is called Inscription, and is presented by the Swedish manufacturer as a package that improves both aesthetics and quality inside and outside of the four models concerned.

According to the official press release provided by the Swedish manufacturer, the Inscription package is composed of a number of additional premium elements, such as Soft Leather upholstery, leather-covered dashboard, floor mats specially designed to match the new top materials for the interior and embroideries with the Inscription logo.

Also, those interested to raise the quality of their new Volvo ambience, can enjoy a series of insertions made of special materials, like wood or on dark colored ceiling, the latter exclusively for the XC60 model.

On the outside, the Inscription package is characterized by the appearance of three new shades (white pearl Crystal, Silver Electric and Black Amber) and the availability of a new series of wheels measuring 19 or 20 inches.

Another novelty covering all models of Volvo's range is that they can be ordered with aggregated systems under the Sensus Connect umbrella.
They cover car Internet connectivity using a mobile data subscription. This system opens interesting options for the driver in developed countries, such as the possibility of online payment of parking, looking for points of interest around the destination set in the navigation system, or listening to music via online radios.

Also Sensus Connect now includes Connected Service Booking system that lets you know when it is almost time for servicing, and even make your reservation at the online service.

Music played by Sensus Connect will be of high quality due to Premium Sound package, signed by Harman Kardon: up to 12 speakers and 5x130W amplifier.
