Volvo adds Drive-E powertrain to V40
Volvo has announced it will be adding a new efficient engine option for the V40 as part of its model line-up for 2015.
The manufacturer says the move now means drivers can benefit from a "world-class blend of drivability and low emissions", with the 190hp Volvo V40 D4 with manual gearbox emitting just 99g/km of CO2 and delivering 74.3mpg.
Michael Fleiss, vice president for powertrains at Volvo Car Group, said: “The outstanding take-off and responsiveness of the Drive-E engines, combined with a smooth engine sound, will make the cars even more fun to drive, without compromising on modern customers’ demand for superb fuel economy and minimised CO2 emissions.”
In addition to offering a highly economical drive, the new Volvo models will come with updated on-board infotainment and the Sensus Connect navigation system.
Cloud-based services within this technology allow drivers to find available parking spaces and nearby restaurants and to stream their favourite music.
