The technical details of the XC40 are yet to be revealed. The small SUV is likely to draw power from a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. Volvo will also offer diesel engines. The top-of-the-range model will be a hybrid with a 106bhp petrol engine and a 74bhp electric motor.
Volvo Cars’ importer in Hungary unintendedly published all the promotion pictures and movies, when they were supposed to put out a 20 seconds long teaser. The site Carscoop was first to report about the mistake.
Powertrain wise, Volvo XC40 will feature a range of three and four-cylinder engines in both petrol and diesel iterations along with a plug-in hybrid as well. We will come to know the actual specifications only when the car is unveiled on September 21 and we’ll be right there to tell you all about it.
While pricing details can be expected only after the XC40 is announced, the vehicle is expected to compete with the Range Rover, the Audi Q3 and perhaps the Jaguar E-Pace which is yet to launch.
