New XC40 Launch - Save The Date
The new Volvo XC40 arrives in Havant
Cambridge Havant Volvo is celebrating the arrival of the new Volvo XC40 with an exclusive invite only launch event on Thursday 22nd February at its newly refurbished retail centre on Bedhampton Road.
Completing the brand’s global SUV line-up, the new XC40 is set apart by its rugged but stylish looks, raft of safety equipment and command driving position. Jam-packed with some of the best safety features and technology found on its larger siblings, this small premium SUV is far from being simply a scaled down version, but is very much a vehicle in its own right.
The event kicks off at 5.30pm (until 9.30pm) and will give guests the opportunity to experience the new XC40 at close quarters for the first time, whilst enjoying entertainment and food provided by local businesses.
Hosting the proceedings will be Cambridge Havant Head of Business, Nick Hancock, who says: “We are all very excited to welcome the latest addition to Volvo’s portfolio. I’m particularly looking forward to showcasing it to existing valued customers and welcoming car drivers who may not have considered a Volvo in the past.”

THE NEW VOLVO XC60
NEW VOLVO XC60
The first new Volvo XC60 rolls off the production line in Torslanda, Sweden
Production of Volvo Cars’ new XC60 mid-size SUV started today at the company’s Torslanda plant in Sweden. The first customer-bound car, a T5 Inscription AWD in Crystal White, rolled off the production line just before lunch time.
The new car replaces Volvo’s highly-successful original XC60, which in the nine years since its launch became the bestselling premium mid-sized SUV in Europe with nearly a million units sold globally. The XC60 today represents around 30 per cent of Volvo’s total global sales.
“This is a proud day for everyone at the plant,” said Magnus Nilsson, vice president of the Torslanda plant. “We have worked hard in recent weeks and months to prepare Torslanda for this latest new Volvo model, and now we are ready to start delivering new XC60s to customers.”
The XC60 is the fourth model based on Volvo’s in-house developed SPA vehicle architecture, following the introduction of the top-of-the-line 90 series in recent years. The SPA-related investments in Sweden have had positive effects on employment at the company, as thousands of new jobs have been added in production, research & development and other areas.
New comfort and safety technology
The new XC60, one of the safest cars ever made, is fully-loaded with new technology. Steer Assist has been added to the ground-breaking City Safety system. A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.
Pilot Assist, Volvo’s advanced semi-autonomous driver assistance system, which takes care of steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130 km/h, is available in the new XC60 as an option.
The new XC60 offers Volvo’s award-winning T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid at the top of the powertrain range, delivering 407 hp and acceleration from 0-100 Km in just 5.3 seconds.
But it is not just under the hood that the new XC60 delivers healthy performance. The new CleanZone four-zone climate system removes harmful pollutants and particles from outside the cabin to deliver Scandinavian-fresh air on the inside.
Volvo Cars’ driver infotainment and connected services offer, Sensus, and the Volvo On Call app both receive a graphical update with improved usability. As in the 90 Series cars, smartphone integration with CarPlay and Android Auto is also available.
With the new XC60 now on the market and gradually becoming available for order on markets across the globe, Volvo is set for another record year of sales in 2017.
