launch of a new model the market is usually a very important event for any brand of cars, however in the Swedish firm, Volvo, are living with much enthusiasm the arrival of their latest models. The reaction is logical and normal, since during a time, their models do not just attract the audience they wanted and since the launch of the latest generation of SUV XC90 have reached to the height of the best premium brands.
however this model has not been more than the tip of the spear of what we expected since the S90 and V90 have confirmed that the darts of Volvo van direct at the heart of the “Three Marys” (Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz). The next model that will see the light is the new compact SUV XC40 and it is exactly that has caught several photographers spy performing the test validation for areas of snow and extreme climates.
The medium that has made public these photos is Auto Express and as you can see the model features a layer of camouflage quite consistent. However, this does not prevent us from see their basic lines of design and as it seems resemble much the concept 40.1 that presented the signature in may of last year. In addition, it will keep as a sign of identity, a profile very similar to the one that has the XC90 and that also will be replicated to good, safe the new generation of the XC60.
All it will, as we already know, spiced by the new modular platform for vehicles small and medium-sized Volvo. The CMA will make this SUV a vehicle very adjustable as it will allow mount mechanical petrol and diesel (all four-cylinder) as well as new hybrid systems, and even some electric version. In addition, do not forget that you also have options of traction at the front axle or to all four wheels.
To finish we need to remember that the Volvo XC40 will give life to the first model the new firm Lynk&Co. If everything goes as planned, the signatures premium will have to put the batteries, because Volvo is willing to go to for all.
