Volvo V40 Cross Country review – Volvo presented few new models at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and I have to say I was quite impressed with the new Volvo V40 Cross Country.
There are some obvious changes that make this capable light off-road vehicle stand out from the base V40 estate. I myself particularly liked the macho exterior styling and the compact size of the car.

The  2013 Volvo V40 Cross Country has bigger ground clearance and is offered with in front and 4×4 version as well. This combination make it better car for slippery surfaces and winter conditions but heavy off-roading is not going to work with the Volvo V40 Cross Country.
 The 2013 Volvo V40 Cross Country is offered with the choice of three petrol and three diesel engines with 254hp for the most powerful 5-cylinder T5 engine. This engine is coupled to the robotised 6-speed Powershift gearbox. A 6-speed manual is offered for the less powerful engines.
Here is a short video  review of the 2013 Volvo V40 Cross Country:

  • This is one of the best cars we have reviewed in 2012. Volvo V40 Cross Country has very nice exterior design, looking modern and macho but keeping the compact sizes of the basic V40 estate. The interior is also very comfortable and instruments are quite intuitive. The materials used in the V40 Cross Country are good quality and plenty of tech options are available. Very nice car.
