The all-new Volvo V40 is nearing local shores and due to the high amount of order requests, Volvo Car South Africa has decided to release the pricing and line-up of its new five-door premium hatchback.
VCSA has had to break away from the industry tradition of only releasing pricing and final line-up at launch. According to Bram van der Reep, MD Volvo Car South Africa: "We couldn't have received a better indication of just how popular the Volvo V40 is going to be. It is such an exciting vehicle for us and we are delighted that the public seem to be equally eager for the arrival of the Volvo V40."
After its international debut in June this year, the all-new Volvo V40 was immediately heralded by many as the new benchmark in the premium hatch segment. In South Africa, Volvo's new premium hatch will be available for test drives at all Volvo dealerships from 15 October, and will go on sale from 15 November 2012, but orders can be placed now.
Initially, Volvo will be launching with the all-new V40 in T3 manual, T4 manual, D2 manual and D3 Geartronic derivatives. The remainder of the local line-up, including the spectacular Volvo V40 R-Design, will be available from March 2013.
