2017 Volvo XC40 – Modification under the Hood
The speculations have it that 2017 XC40 will have both petrol and diesel engine, with hybrid versions for the two. The diesel engine will be a 2.0-liter five-cylinder engine that produces over 140 hp and over 200 lb-ft worth of torque. As for the gas engines, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is the most suitable, producing 180 hp and over 230 lb-ft torque. The hybrids have higher efficiencies with the twin plug, T5 engine.
The diesel engine is powerful between the two when combined with the all-wheel power distribution system. With an option of 5-speed manual or 6-gear automatic transmissions, the vehicle is capable of having smooth rides, regardless of the terrains. In the case of the hybrid engines, power and stability of transmissions especially during short accelerations is remarkable.

The test versions of the XC40 are already out, but the developer shows no sign of releasing the vehicle earlier than mid-2017. Maybe the redesigning and competition from other brands is making Volvo take time in creating a perfect vehicle.
For pricing, the vehicle has features that compete with models such as Range Rover Evoque and Audi Q3. From such a class, the prices expected to start from $31,000, for the lower versions and over $40,000 for the hybrid versions.
Volvo has redesigned its models over the years and the Volvo XC40 2017 is a polish of previous models.

The pricing is fair, considering the advancement of features in this 2017 Volvo XC40.
