The 2017 Volvo V40 and V40 Cross Country models have received the new face of Volvo.

The two models have received trim updates across the range, with new front grille meshes that feature the updated and more visually striking Volvo Iron Mark. The refresh also outfits the V40 with the new “Thor’s Hammer” headlights that have become iconic in the new Volvo 90 Series cars.

The model will also be available in five colors that are new to the V40: Amazon Blue, Denim Blue, Bursting Blue, Mussel Blue and Luminous Sand.

Inside, it takes a cue from the award-winning Volvo Concept Estate by incorporating a new upholstery called City Weave that is available along with a new Charcoal/Blond steering wheel option. There are also new interior trim options that include milled aluminum, black grid aluminum and stealth aluminum.
