At the point when discussing Volvo cars, execution isn't the first thing that rings a bell. Maybe, Volvos are better known for their security and fabulous mileage. In any case, those hoping to purchase an auto that is somewhat snappier than what Volvo normally brings to the table can take it to Polestar, the brand's execution division. Basically known for conveying items like BMW's M Performance and Mercedes' AMG, Polestar has recently presented the "Execution Optimization" bundle, which concentrates on elite visual overhauls and gentle execution improvements. The main Volvo to get the new bundle is the V40 hatchback. 

Named V40 Carbon, the five-entryway lid highlights a bespoke outside and inside and accompanies a decision of two motors, fuel and diesel. The uplifting news is that both powerplains wrench out more drive than their standard kin, basically overcoming any and all hardships between the consistent V40 and the undeniable Polestar version. 

All the more uplifting news originates from the way that the Swedes are wanting to advance other Drive-E motors also later in 2015, importance more vehicles are situated to get Polestar's new bundle. Then, how about we have a more intensive take a gander at the V40 Carbon below.                                                                                                                       The V40 Carbon’s exterior is far from radical, but customers will receive a hatchback that will stand out in a pack of standard V40s. Although Volvo released very little info and only a couple of photos of the car, I’ve identified three bespoke features on the Carbon hatch. A significant portion of the roof comes in carbon-fiber, while the standard wheels are replaced by a set of exclusive, 19-inch, five-spoke rims finished in blackish. Both the side mirrors and the window trim are painted black for a strong contrast with the car’s white paint job.

There’s no word on what other exterior colors will be available, but my guess is there will be more than just the pearl white shown here. A black paint option would turn the V40 Carbon in a menacing all-black hatch even AC& DC back in black  would drool on. Likewise, Polestar’s signature Rebel Blue would be a cool idea as well, though it might not happen on a car like this.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Volvo didn’t speak much of the Carbon’s interior either, but the press release tells us the two main novelties customers should expect once inside the cabin. Opening the front doors will reveal a couple of very cool carbon-fiber sill plates, while the front seats get red seat belts. Granted, flashier seat belts won’t make the car run faster, but they do add a touch of sportiness to the otherwise black interior. Volvo also mentions other "carbon details," but provides no actual facts.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           The V40 Carbon can be had with either the T5 gas motor or the D4 diesel, both having gotten critical knocks in force and torque. The T5 now wrenches out 253 drive and 295 pound-feet of torque, while the D4 creates 200 stallions and an incredible 326 pound-feet of turn. That is a change of 25 strength and 37 pound-feet for the gas plant and 16 stallions and 30 pound-feet for the oil burner. While the T5 just mates to an eight-velocity programmed, the D4 can likewise be had with a six-rate manual transmission. 

Polestar additionally centered around enhancing throttle reaction, gearshift speed, gearshift accuracy precision and hold, and off-throttle reaction. There's no word how these enhancements and the included force affect the V40's execution specs, however they ought to shave no less than a tenth second off the 0-to-60 mph sprints. Anticipate that the T5 will hit 60 mph in around 6.4 seconds and the D4 to accomplish the same benchmark in around 7.2 seconds.Apparently the most mainstream nameplate in this specialty, the Golf comes in different body styles and with a variety of motors. The GTi is straight up the V40 T5's rear way with its turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-chamber appraised at 215 drive and 255 pound-feet of torque in Europe. Notwithstanding being less intense than the Volvo, the GTi is really snappier from 0 to 60 mph, requiring 6.2 seconds to hit that speed. 
Volvo has yet to release pricing information for the V40 Carbon, but it did mention production will be limited to only 343 units, which is good news as far as exclusivity goes. Unfortunately, since the V40 isn’t available in the United States, neither will the V40 Carbon. In fact, Volvo will only sell it in Finland, France, Japan, the Netherlands and Sweden.
At that point there's the GTD, the GTi's diesel-fueled comparable and the ideal different option for the V40 D4. This trapdoor accompanies a 2.0-liter turbodiesel in the engine and 185 stallions and 275 pound-feet of torque to the wheels. The 0-to-60 mph sprints takes around 7.2 seconds, which makes it a smidgen slower than the Volvo. 

Obviously, none of these lids can be had with a carbon-fiber bundle, yet Volkswagen does give a lot of customization choices. Of the two, just the Golf GTi is accessible Stateside.Despite featuring loads of safety features and an impressive lineup of engines, now significantly more fuel efficient than of its competitors, the Volvo V40 Volvo V40 remains one of the least popular compact hatchbacks out there. Granted, the Carbon edition won’t change that, but it will provide Volvo customers access to a more exclusive model. Exclusivity is a key factor in today’s market and Volvo seems determined to catch up with more popular rivals in just about any segment it competes in. The V40 Carbon is a great start for a new line of cars set to arrive in showrooms by the end of 2015.
