Swedish luxury automaker Volvo has added three new engines to the XC40 lineup globally. The engines have been added in order to strengthen the position of the SUV in the global market. Out of the three two will be petrol motors, while one will be a diesel mill.
The first engine is Volvo’s first three-cylinder, the T3, being a 1.5-litre, direct-injection engine that makes 153.86 bhp and 265 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated a 6-speed manual as standard, however an 8-speed automatic gearbox will be launched later. The engine is capable of doing 0-100 kmph in 9.4 seconds and the 1.5-litre engine also powers the XC40 plug-in hybrid, which was unveiled earlier this year.
Second petrol motor is the T4 that comes powered by a 2.0-liter turbo petrol which makes 187 bhp of maximum power and gets from 0 to 100 kmph in 8.2 seconds, while the transmission option includes only an eight speed automatic gearbox.
