Limited Editions Add Value and Appeal to Volvo Line-Up
Volvo's compact is also available in limited edition sedan and wagon versions. The S40 AKTIV and V40 AKTIV, a name inspired by the Swedish word for "active", proves that good things really do come in small packages.
The AKTIV features a choice of Black Sapphire, Titanium and Silver body colours, with 15" Vogon alloy wheels, black-blend dual headlights, front fog lights and rear spoiler. The cabin has leather upholstery and claret wood-effect inlays.
The price for the S40 AKTIV is $44,450 and the V40 AKTIV is $46,450, $2500 more than the S40 2.0 and V40 2.0 Automatic. If purchased individually, the value-add items listed above would normally cost more than $7000.
