The V40 Cross Country running costs should be competitive against its premium rivals. The most economical engine is the 115hp 1.6-litre diesel engine returning 74mpg on average.

If it’s an environmentally friendly version you’re after then you want the D2. This 115hp 1.6-litre diesel engine emits 99g/km – that means there’s no road tax to pay making it top of the class for green credentials. A six-speed gearbox and start/stop technology come as standard on this version of the V40 Cross Country. All petrol and diesel engine versions have start/stop and braking energy regeneration whether they are fitted with a manual or automatic gearbox.

The Volvo V40 Cross Country reliability record looks good. The normal V40 has had no problems and we expect the Cross Country version to be as reliable.
