Heico Sportiv adds some oomph to the Volvo V40

Volvo isn’t exactly a brand we associate with performance often. Luxury? Sure. Safety? Absolutely. But not to worry, the kind folks at Heico Sportiv are here to remedy the issue by creating a sportier version of the Volvo V40.

The tuning kit they’ve put out includes an ECU reflash, bumping the output of the turbocharged five-cylinder engine to 266 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, compared to 237 and 236 respectively out of the factory. The car will also come with new seven-spoke alloy wheels, a new bodykit, and quad ovoid exhaust tips to give it that sportier appearance.

It doesn’t sound like much, and it probably isn’t really. But if you’re looking to add just a little bit of extra oomph to your V40, this might be the way to go.
