Drive-E engines for the Volvo V40

Now it is the V40's turn to get Volvo's all new engines.
It will be available with the new 2.0 Liter Turbo with 254HP. (The one we get here in the S60/V60)
And a brand new 2.0 Liter Diesel with 190HP. Which should be really nice.

But, as usual. This is not fir us since we don't get the V40 in the 1st place.

Let's hope that will change. (I remember when they were saying the V60 will never make it to the US...)
Don't they need new models over here? Besides the expensive and big XC90 SUV. (And that is still a year away.)

I think V40 is probably too small for the US. V60 isn't exactly big either and people will cross shop with SUV's which typically have more interior space.

Not sure how sales are looking for V60 since Volvo report 60 series total sales. But there isn't a huge wagon market in the US.
