Volvo Philippines launches all-new V40

9 May 2013

The all-new Volvo V40, a modern expressive car, with characteristics from larger Volvos wrapped in a sleek, compact package, is now in the Philippines. This five-door, five-seater luxury hatchback combines trendsetting design with class-leading driving dynamics.

"The all-new Volvo V40 is a bold expression of challenging the conventional. With great focus on the luxury look and feel of the car, it offers you a more engaging and personalized driving experience. With keen attention to detail, the Volvo V40 also reflects Volvo's promise of a car that is designed around you," said Loi Concepcion De Guzman, AVP for Marketing Services.

The Volvo V40 features a new fully graphic interactive dashboard with personalized layout and information that enhances the intuitive and uncomplicated driver experience. With the Volvo Sensus, all in-car infotainment settings are presented on a five-inch color screen in the upper part of the instrument panel. The integrated screen makes it easy for the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road. All the functions can be operated from the steering wheel or via controls located directly below the color screen.

This Volvo hatch also boasts class-leading driving dynamics thanks to focused attention to a number of vital areas.

The chassis is designed to offer the agile, connected experience that creates true driving pleasure. The rigid body and low center of gravity promote an alert, quick-responding character that focuses on the driving experience, yet without compromising ride comfort.

In combination with the automatic six-speed Powershift transmission, the all-new Volvo V40 will be available locally with a four cylinder, 1.6-liter GTDi T4 engine with 180 horsepower and a maximum torque of 240Nm, including a 30Nm overboost.

It is available at an introductory price of P2,288,888.
