Three new engines have been added to the Volvo XC40 range, taking choices available for the SUV to five.

The XC40 launched earlier in 2017 with a 247hp T5 petrol engine or a D4 diesel of 190hp, and took the much-prized European Car of the Year award.

The three new units are led by the T3 petrol, Volvo’s first three-cylinder engine and expected to prove a big seller in the XC40 range. The 1.5-litre unit produces 156hp and 265Nm of torque, put through a six-speed manual transmission – Volvo intends to add an eight-speed auto option later.

T3 models go from 0 to 62mph in 9.4 seconds while returning combined cycle fuel economy of up to 45.6mpg and CO2 emissions from 144g/km.

   

Further powertrain additions to the XC40 range comprise the 2.0-litre four-cylinder T4 petrol and D3 diesel engines, both proven in other Volvo models. The T4 is supplied as standard with an automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive, while the D3 can be specified in front or all-wheel-drive forms.

XC40 models can now be purchased in three equipment levels, Momentum, R-Design or Inscription. All three are also offered in ‘Pro’ versions that add extra equipment such as heated front seats, bending headlights, LED front fog lights with a cornering function and a heated windscreen.

With the latest additions, the XC40 line-up now comprises 38 different models, starting with the T3 Momentum with manual gearbox at £27,610 and ranging up to the T5 Inscription Pro automatic at £37,620.
