Volvo shows off updated V40 in CPT: See these awesome shots

Volvo has (finally) launched a new version of its V40 and V40 Cross Country hatch. The new car is being introduced to media this week at intimate settings in/around Cape Town.

Volvo, through an official press release issued this morning, promises that the new V40 and V40 Cross Country places emphasis on the individuality and unique personality of the driver in every respect. The Swedish design and uniquely Scandinavian approach to life means the Volvo V40 is different – much like the individuals to which it appeals. The V40 offers a classy, yet sporty and connected driving feel with the ability to go anywhere, according to Volvo. But don’t take our word for it, see these awesome shots from Brent Ellis, Media Relations Manager for Volvo SA.

The car will be available with 17″ or 18″ wheels and high profile tires for more comfort and off-road capability – for the CC. The tires are also designed to reduce road noise while protecting wheels from rocks and curbs. Inside the car, Volvo will offer leather seating in Charcoal, blond or amber interior colour schemes are available from launch , alongside a new, timelessly trendy City Weave arrangement – inspired by the elegant Volvo Concept Estate.

City Weave sees a blond/charcoal interior matched with a unique tweed-like textile pattern on the seats, and a two-tone blond/charcoal steering wheel – the ultimate expression of trend-setting retro design.
