Volvo‘s new V40 has now added to very cool variants – the sporty V40 R-Design and the rugged V40 Cross Country. R-Design is essentially the sporty performance division (no quite Polestar performance but you get the idea) and with the V40 they have added new five spoke 17″ Ixion wheels, redesigned front bumper and rear diffuser as well as adding some R-Design branding inside. Prices for the V40 R-Design will start at €29,645.
The V40 Cross Country as you can imagine offers a different look and follows in the wheel tracks of past Cross Country Volvo models at offers a more off-road look. The standard Cross Country ES comes with City Safety Technology, DSTC (Dynamic Stability Traction Control) system and Pedestrian airbag, electric windows, ECC (Electronic Climate Control). Prices for the V40 Cross Country will start at €29,995. Both models are available to order now and will be on our roads in January 2013. We will be testing the standard V40 first here on 50to70 in the coming weeks.
