the only car in India by Volvo Cars that is available in both the versions, in

The new GTDi engines have a
compact format and are made entirely from die-cast aluminum, which gives low
weight and good heat-dissipation capability. These are some of the requirements
for good energy efficiency. The fuel injection system has been refined so that
combustion can be regulated with extreme precision, each injector centrally
above the piston beside the spark plug. This gives particularly uniform and
finely atomised fuel distribution. In order to minimise petrol consumption and
emissions, the fuel must be utilised as efficiently as possible.
The all-new Volvo V40 has
received the top rating of five stars in the Euro NCAP collision test.
