Both the new XC40 and XC60 will arrive here sometime early next year drawing design inspiration from their bigger sibling XC90
Volvo might not be as strong as the other luxury car brands like Mercedes-Benz in India but the Swedish marque is trying to take the game up further with new products and making the right moves. While the brand has earned appreciation with the models like XC90, S90 and V90 Cross Country in the domestic market, it is gearing up to launch two more cars here.
These two luxury cars from the brand are going to be the XC40 and the new XC60. The exact launch time is not disclosed yet, but Volvo will be bringing both these models very soon in the tightly contested market. Both these SUVs are expected to arrive in domestic market sometime in early 2018.
Both the 2018 Volvo XC40 and the new XC60 come inspired by their bigger sibling XC90’s design. Speaking about the XC40, it is underpinned by Volvo’s modular CMA platform and upon launch it will lock horns with rivals like Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Range Rover Evoque. It gets Volvo’s signature new front grille and Thor’s Hammer LED daytime running lights, just like the new XC60 and XC90 as well.
The 2018 Volvo XC40 comes with a range of powertrain options that including plug-in hybrid technology. Also, it carries several advanced safety features following the Swedish brand’s strategy of ensuring no deaths involving Volvo cars by 2020. On the other hand, the 2018 Volvo XC60 too becomes pretty attractive with its refreshed appearance and it could enter India before the XC40 – possibly by the closure of 2017 or early next year.
This SUV features the automaker’s signature front grille and Thor’s Hammer LED daytime running lights. While designing this car, Volvo has emphasised on enhanced luxury and comfort for the occupants. It boasts several high-end new technologies along with a new touchscreen infotainment system, a fully digital instrument cluster. Also, it comes with a range of fuel-efficient powertrain options as well.
