  • Company car tax from £94 up to £322 depending on spec

Volvo has announced pricing and specification for its V40 R-Design and V40 Cross Country models.

The R-Design P11d values will start at £21,745, and this will net you a company car driver-friendly D2 model which emits just 94g/km of CO2. That means company car tax will be payable at 13% for both this and the next tax year. It equates to a monthly company car tax bill of £94 for a 40% tax payer.

Borrowing styling cues from other Volvo R-Design products, the V40 gets a re-profiled front bumper and a new rear splitter, 17-inch alloys and silver door mirrors. Interior tweaks include unique upholstery, sports floor mats, a sports steering wheel and sports pedals. There’s also illumination in the form of a unique TFT screen and a gearknob, while buyers also get aluminium trim and LED daytime running lights.

If that little lot isn’t enough, you can plump for the R-Design Lux pack. This adds bending Xenon headlights with auto washers, active windscreen wipers, leather-faced badged sports seats, cruise control, keyless start and ambient lighting for the rear of the car.

The most you can pay for a V40 R-Design is £288 per month on the 40% pay scale. This assumes a P11d value of £30,840 – for which you’ll get a powerful T5 petrol engine, semi-automatic gearbox and R-Design Lux Nav trim.

There’s a special R-Design colour available known as Rebel Blue (pictured), or you can choose from six other hues.

The V40 Cross Country is a car aimed at those wanting a more rugged look for their five-door hatchback. You get equipment such as automatic folding wing mirrors with puddle lamps and black mirror covers, 16-inch alloys, rain-sensing wipers, textile upholstery, tread plates and silver roof rails.

As with the R-Design trim, Cross Country Lux will offer even more kit. On top of the SE trim you can expect leather-faced upholstery, active cornering Xenon headlights, 17-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights and reading lighting in the rear.

In SE trim a D2 V40 Cross Country will have a P11d value of £22,045, which means company car tax will be £95 per month for 40% tax payers. The top spec T5 Geartronic Cross Country Lux Nav with four-wheel-drive will have a P11d value of £33,325, meaning Benefit-in-Kind taxation will be £322 per month on the 40% pay scale.

You can order either of the V40 special edition models now, with first UK deliveries starting in January 2013.
