Land Rover Discovery Sport

Volvo is to launch the XC40, its entry into the compact SUV segment, with the brand’s first three-cylinder engine, with prices starting at under £28,000.

The all-new 1.5-litre, three-cylinder, direct-injection petrol engine was developed in-house using the same modular design as Volvo’s four-cylinder Drive-E engines. The three-cylinder powertrain (badged T3) comes with a six-speed manual transmission, with an eight-speed automatic option to follow next year.

The new unit has also been designed for integration into plug-in hybrid cars. Hybrid and fully-electric models of the XC40 will be added to the range in due course.

Volvo’s current D3 150hp diesel and T4 190hp petrol engines are also added to broaden the XC40 engine offer.

XC40 customers have a choice of trim levels, including entry-level Momentum and dynamic R-Design versions, the luxurious new Inscription trim level.

Inscription trim offers exterior styling choices with a range of 18-inch to 21-inch wheel options, unique skid plates, side window and grille mesh chrome, model-specific paint colours.

Inside, Inscription adds a crystal gear knob on automatic models and Driftwood decorative inlays, which Volvo previously introduced in the latest-generation XC60 mid-size SUV.

XC40 customers can further express themselves with accessories such as the new exterior styling kit that offers brushed stainless steel skid plates, lower door trim mouldings and integrated dual tailpipes, and the new accessory roof spoiler.

UK prices for the XC40 T3 range from £27,905 on the road, with Inscription versions available from £30,405. First customer deliveries are expected this summer.
