All-New Volvo V40 Cross Country
The All-New Volvo V40 Cross Country is the perfect companion for spontaneous adventure, with its rugged design cues, increased ride height and a whole range of technological innovations.

Incorporating all the best of contemporary Scandinavian design with added attitude, this Swedish looker, features ergonomically designed seats that feature a unique two-tone design and accent stitching. With the Volvo Sensus, one can adjust the brightness of the interior LED lights as well as choose from seven different theater light modes to create the desired ambience, or switch to temperature lighting, which automatically envelops the interior in colors that match the climate control settings. Aside from that, you can also expect from its class-leading automotive safety benefits, featuring a range of innovative technologies including Adaptive Cruise Control, Pedestrian Airbag technology, Pedestrian Detection with full auto-brake and City Safety, which automatically brakes the car in an emergency at speeds of up to 50km/h. All of these are part of IntelliSafe, Volvo’s complete approach to car safety. It can also be equipped with Park Assist Pilot that makes parallel parking less of a hassle and can park the V40 automatically. Locally available in petrol or diesel, the V40 Cross Country is a nimble, spacious, and fuel-efficient Volvo that gives you plenty of versatility and style.
