Volvo V40 Cross Country
Volvo's surprisingly attractive V40 dons hiking boots for Paris with the new Cross Country variant. Riding 40 mm higher than the standard car, with requisite body cladding and 19-inch wheels, it's the sort of car for people who want to let the world know they've got an active lifestyle. All-wheel drive is an option for the range-topping T5 model; all others make do with front-drive and fuel-frugal turbocharged gas and diesel motors. There's a small chance that the V40 Cross Country might make it to Canada, a Volvo spokesperson commented that it is under investigation.
