Volvo has announced the V40 and V40 Cross Country can now be equipped with new Drive-E engines.

First up, the T5 produces 245 HP (180 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the V40 - with an eight-speed automatic transmission - to average 5.8 l/100 km (40.5 mpg US / 48.7 mpg UK) and have CO2 emissions of 136 g/km.

The D4, on the other hand, cranks out 190 HP (140 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. When connected to a six-speed manual transmission, the V40 averages 3.3 l/100 km (71.2 mpg US / 85.6 mpg UK) and has CO2 emissions of 85 g/km. The V40 Cross Country fares a little worse as it consumes 4.0 l/100 km (58.8 mpg US / 70.6 mpg UK) and has CO2 emissions of 104 g/km.

According to Volvo Powertrain Vice President Michael Fleiss, “The Volvo V40 D4 offers a massive 80 HP (59 kW) more driving pleasure than other cars in the segment with CO2 emissions at that level. This is yet more proof that the Drive-E powertrains take efficient driving pleasure to a new dimension."
