Volvo spec changes lead to price rises

VOLVO has increased the prices of its S/V40 SE models after modifications to its specification line-up. The top-of-the-range CD variant has been scrapped throughout the entire Volvo range, with the SE becoming the top spec car and taking on CD-level equipment.

On most models, SE spec is an option, but the 125bhp 1.8-litre S/V40 are only available as SEs, leading to price increases of £1,850 (10.8%) from £17,130 to £18,980 for the S40 and up £1,100 (5.9%) from £18,630 to £19,730 for the V40. Prices are on-the-road, but do not include road fund licence or first registration fee. The upgraded SE gains electronic climate control, illuminated driver/passenger vanity mirrors, red wood trim and a CD radio-cassette. Cruise control is added to the S40 SE but was already standard on the V40 SE.
