The V40 is the last Volvo to be designed by British designer Peter Horbury before he moved to Volvo's parent Geely.

The Volvo V40 Cross Country is a version of the V40 which rides 40 millimeters higher and has a rougher bodywork.
Because it's not a real SUV it will be called V40 Cross Country instead of XC40. The Volvo XC-additive will only be used in the for SUVs. Cross Country serves as indicator for all-road versions of hatchbacks and station wagons. The maximum rim size is 19 inches. The front is recognizable by its matte black honeycomb grille and lower bumper with daytime running upright. On the side skirts are plastic and the back is characterized by a 'skid plate' containing the inscription "Cross Country".
The Volvo V40 Cross Country debuted on the Paris motorshow of 2012. And will be on the market in 2013.
