The Volvo XC40 is a subcompact luxury crossover SUV designed and manufactured by Volvo Cars. Introduced in 2017 and named Car of the Year by the magazine What Car? in January 2018 the Volvo XC40 is an innovative sought-after SUV for those with the discerning taste that Volvos entice.
The 2018 Volvo XC40 was also awarded the European Car of the Year during the 2018 Geneva Motor Show along with the Carsales Car of the Year in 2018, and Irish Car of the Year in 2019. With increased product in 2019, the popularity and accolades for this stylish SUV will only continue to grow.
DESCRIBED as the youthful cousin to the XC60, Volvo’s first ever compact SUV – the XC40 – is the perfect answer for anyone looking for a practical, stylish car that’s economical to run, as safe as houses and delivers more desirable driving dynamics than full-sized people movers.
The five-door model has already scooped a number of awards since making its world debut back in September 2017 and having got behind the wheel, it’s clear to see just why it has been greeted with such high praise.
Firstly, it’s a looker. Boasting a bold, expressive exterior the XC40 features a concave front grille housing the Volvo emblem, sculpted lower door sections, distinctive tail lights, a rear skid plate, dark tinted windows, LED headlights with T-shaped daytime running lights and active high beam plus smart alloys. Our test car also featured a powered glass sunroof as part of a Xenium Pack.
The interior is equally impressive with fine leather upholstery, two-zone climate control, a 12.3-inch driver information display and a striking nine-inch centre console touchscreen. This introduces Sensus Navigation with full European mapping, along with Sensus Connect which allows access to a range of apps.
There is a premium Harman Kardon 13-speaker sound system, a wireless charger, heated seats, a heated steering wheel and connecting a smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto is a simple process.
Another feature fitted to all models is a built-in car modem that allows you, via a sim card with a data allowance, to turn the car into a WiFi hotspot for up to eight devices.
