Currently showing in selected local cinemas, the latest installment of the Tomb Raider not only features a new, up and coming star (although we’d much prefer to see Angelina Jolie reprise her role) but also showcases the new Volvo XC40.
Newly crowned the 2018 European Car of the Year, the XC40 will be Lara Croft’s wheels of choice as she looks to solve the mystery of her father’s disappearance.
As the first ever premium compact SUV by Volvo Cars, the XC40 is also the first model to be built on the company’s all-new Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform that’s been jointly developed by Volvo and its new owners, Geely – promising improved safety and engineering flexibility.
Already proving to be a success in this ever increasing, SUV-crazed market, the XC40 had received bookings of more than 20,000 units globally since it was introduced in Europe and America last year.
In recent developments, the Volvo XC40 R-Design announced its arrival in Singapore where the T5 AWD variant is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine generating 247 hp and 350 Nm – with power sent to all four wheels via an eight speed transmission.
