Fans of the new movie Tomb Raider should notice the New Volvo XC40 alongside our heroine Lara Croft, starring newcomer Alicia Vikander. The latest Tomb Raider movie hits theaters 16 March. The new Volvo XC40 has yet been officially launched in the U.S.
Starring Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander, Tomb Raider depicts the young and resolute Lara Croft, who, against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit, must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If Lara survives this perilous adventure, it could earn her the name tomb raider.
“We’re very excited for the Volvo XC40 to have its film debut with Tomb Raider,” said Bob Jacobs, Vice President, Marketing, Product and Brand Communication, Volvo Car USA. “One of the things we love about the film is Lara Croft’s character: bold, surprising and always ready for adventure, just like the Volvo XC40.”

The Volvo XC40 is focused on a new expression of Scandinavian design with style, innovative technologies and fun-to-drive characteristics. Whether on a refined city drive or an exhilarating adventure, this fully capable #suv is intuitive to use, a pleasure to drive and beautiful to behold.
The new XC40 is the brand’s first entry into the compact luxury SUV segment. It is the first model on the Volvo’s new modular vehicle architecture (CMA) platform which will underpin all other upcoming vehicles in the 40 Series including fully electrified vehicles. Mot powerful of the range is the XC40 T5 which holds a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo engine with 8-speed gearbox, along with all-wheel-drive, and it churns up to 250 hp and 350 Nm of torque. A month earlier, Volvo announced a new 1.5-liter, three-cylinder, direct-injection petrol engine for this model. The three-cylinder powertrain (badged T3) comes with a six-speed manual transmission. Meantime, an optional eight-speed automatic transmission will follow next year.
All of the technologies audiences have come to expect from Volvo’s 90 and 60 Series’ are also equipped in the new XC40, making it one of the best-equipped small premium SUVs on the market.
