The new Volvo XC40 has been launched in India at a competitive price of Rs 39.9 lakh (ex-showroom). The vehicle has been in the headlines from the last few days as it is the Swedish manufacturer's most affordable SUV. The new Volvo XC40 comes based on the company's CMA platform that is has shared with its Chinese parent company Geely. It is only possible due to the new platform that the new Volvo XC40 carries its own distinct identity and it does not look like a XC60 or XC90 that has been shrunk. Volvo cars are always known for keeping it high when it comes to safety and the XC40 is no different either. The car is the first in the segment to have radar-based safety features.
