Though XC40 will be available in diesel variant only, the carmaker would consider offering the option of a petrol engine on customer preferences.

“90% of customers demand a diesel engine in this segment, hence we took the decision to offer only a diesel,” Charles Frump, MD, Volvo Auto India was quoted in a report.

In R-Design trim, the XC40 gets equipment such as 18-inch alloy wheels, wireless mobile phone charging, a 750-watt 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, Volvo’s 9.0-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a powered tailgate, and heated front and rear seats.

As is usual with Volvo, the XC40 comes equipped with advanced safety kit in the form of lane-keeping assist, blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control, pilot assist, emergency braking, ESP, traction control, hill descent control and eight airbags.
