Prices for the Volvo V40 have been revised. Launched here in August 2013, the stylish five-door hatchback is available in three variants, all locally-assembled in Shah Alam. They are the V40 T4 (RM173,888), V40 T5 (RM188,888) and the V40 Cross Country T5 (RM198,888). The new prices are as follows:

Volvo V40 T4 – RM173,888
Volvo V40 T5 – RM190,888
Volvo V40 Cross Country T5 – RM200,888

This means that on-the-road excluding insurance prices for both T5 variants (2.0L turbo five-cylinder with 213 hp/300 Nm) are up by RM2,000. The sticker price for the entry-level T4 (1.6L turbo four-cylinder with 180 hp/240 Nm) remains the same. The Cross Country is a higher-riding V40 with SUV-styling.
