Meet the new Volvo XC40, Volvo’s new small premium SUV.  This new model is the first car based on the new Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), an advanced vehicle platform that will underpin all other upcoming Volvos in the 40 Series. Another first  for the XC40 is winning the prestigious European Car of the Year award. The XC40 is the first ever Volvo to claim this title. 

The exterior of this new Volvo SUV is strong and sporty but with a smaller footprint than the larger XC60 and XC90 SUVs. It is available with a wide choice of colors and trim options. Inside the cabin there is plenty of storage space. The XC40 offers several large and smartly designed storage compartments in the doors, under the seats and in the trunk. Other highlights includes a removable bin in the mid console, a small fold-away hook as part of the glove compartment and special slots for credit and service cards.


The XC40 is powered by Volvo’s Drive-E engines, mated to an 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. The XC40 is the first Volvo model to use the company’s new three-cylinder engine, the first in the company’s 91-year history and based on the same modular design as its four-cylinder engines. Power output ranges from 150 to 247 horsepower. 

Equipped with Volvo’s Sensus infotainment system, the new XC40 delivers an intuitive touch screen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment applications such as Spotify, Pandora, Baidu or TuneIn. The portrait-oriented touch screen enables easy and fast access to a host of functions and features. Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also available.

Standard safety features on the 2020 XC40 include Volvo’s City Safety technology which combines automatic braking functionality and collision avoidance systems to cover a range of potential accident scenarios and help keep you safe. City Safety is the only system on the market that detects pedestrians, cyclists and large animals such as moose and deer.


Available safety features include Volvo’s Pilot Assist system, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, Cross Traffic alert with auto brake and the 360° Camera that helps drivers manoeuvre their car into tight parking spaces. These and other technologies make the XC40 one of the best-equipped small premium SUVs.
