Volvo has released new details of its high-riding V40 Cross Country this week, ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show this month.

Throwing out the expected XC40 name, the V40 hatch-based Cross Country retains the familiar lines, but gains a jacked-up suspension package and off-road styling features.

The Cross Country joins a host of hatches to get the crossover treatment, including Subaru's Impreza-based XV, Suzuki's SX4, and the Scout version of Skoda's Octavia wagon.

The Cross Country's mechanical system is largely identical to the regular V40, with an all-wheel-drive system fitted to the top-shelf 187kW 2.5 litre turbo petrol T5 model.

In front-wheel-drive only, the Cross Country's other engines include a 157kW 2.0 litre version of the T5 engine, along with a 132kW 1.6 litre turbo petrol.

Transmissions for the petrol engines include a six-speed auto for the T5 model, and six-speed auto and manual options for the T4.

Diesel engines include the 130kW five-cylinder 2.0 litre D4, and a 110kW 2.0 litre D3. Both are available with six-speed auto and manual transmissions.

There is also a small 84kW D2 1.6 litre engine, available with a six-speed manual and fitted with stop/start technology.



Volvo Australia has confirmed its interest in the V40 Cross Country. The brand's local arm is currently working through engine, transmission, specification and pricing details before locking in a local debut.

Watch for more details on the V40 Cross Country to come at the Paris Motor Show later this month.

The regular V40 is expected to go on sale in Australia either late this year or early in 2013.
