Volvo XC40 facelift launched at Rs 43.20 lakh

The 2022 XC40 mild-hybrid is available in a single B4 Ultimate trim.

Volvo has announced the launch of the XC40 facelift in India at Rs. 43.20 lakh (ex-showroom).

The 2022 XC40 comes with a few exterior changes, including a redesigned grille, new front and rear bumpers and reworked LED headlamps that retain the Thor’s Hammer design. The SUV also gets new 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior of the new XC40 is largely the same. It features a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay connectivity, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof, cabin air filtration system and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

The biggest change, however, is the engine. The 2022 XC40 comes with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine paired with a 48V mild-hybrid system. It produces 297 BHP and 300 Nm and comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Volvo claims that the mild-hybrid setup along with the auto start/stop function helps deliver a fuel efficiency of 15 km/l.

In terms of safety features, the XC40 comes equipped with 7 airbags, three-point seat belts for all three rear seats, Pilot Assist System and a blind-spot monitoring system with steering assist; among others.
