is only a year old, and Volvo is already giving the car some updates. It has cleaned up two engines, added a smaller engine and added all-wheel drive as an option. 

Starting in May, buyers will be able to order either the T5 engine with 254hp or T4 with 180hp with all-wheel drive. 

Volvo has also cut emissions of the D2 diesel with 115hp to 88g/km of CO2 and 3.4l/100km of fuel use. The V40 Cross Country with the same engine now produces 99g/km of CO2 and uses 3.8l/100km. Volvo is also adding an optional automatic transmission to cars with the D2 engine, with which it will emit 102g/km of CO2 and use 3.9l/100km or 108g/km of CO2 and 4.1l/100km on the Cross Country. 

Volvo is also adding the new T2 engine to the V40. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder direct-injected petrol engine produces 120hp and 177lb-ft and will only be available only with a manual transmission. It emits 124g/km of CO2 and uses 5.3l/100km.

Volvo is also adding its Sensus Connected Touch, Internet-connected infotainment system as an option on the V40. It includes a 7in display and, when stationary, full Internet browsing. It also supports apps like Google Maps and weather.
