Volvo has facelifted its V40 hatchback, bringing style closer in line with the new XC90 and S90, adding LED headlights, and reducing emissions to 89g/km.
New grille meshes are fitted, along with the 'Thor's Hammer' LED design that appears to be a signature of new Volvo vehicles.
The exterior update includes the addition of five colours to Volvo’s V40 offer including the completely new Amazon Blue and Denim Blue, as well as three colours already used by other models in the Volvo Cars portfolio: Bursting Blue, Mussel Blue and Luminous Sand.
“The V40 is the best-selling Volvo model in the UK, making it a vital car for the company. With the updates for Model Year 2017, we’re making this already very successful model even more attractive to customers,” said Nick Connor, managing director of Volvo Car UK.
Updates have been made to Volvo's On Call car connectivity app, as well as the introduction of an improved CleanZone air filtering system.
Volvo has also reduced CO2 emissions on its popular D2 manual powertrain to 89g/km, across all trim levels.
