Product Overview

Volvo XC40 is a subcompact crossover in production from 2018. It is powered by inline-3 and inline-4 ICE engines of 1.5L and 2.0L or electric motors from 129hp to 250hp aided by batteries from 11kWh to 78kWh.
Essentially a taller C40 hatchback, the XC40 is rather ugly but is much approachable.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Volvo XC40 uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Recharge line is only offered with Volvo’s higher-end trim levels. Inscription means our XC40 T5 gets 19in alloy wheels, leather upholstery, wooden dashboard trim and a 12.3in infotainment touchscreen. Plenty of options have been added, including a 360deg camera, a panoramic glass roof, a powered tailgate, heated seats, wireless phone charging and tinted rear windows.

  • No automatic gear selector

The XC40 plays the rich, relaxing, lavishly equipped and nicely cocooning modern Volvo very well. It has a likeable, pragmatic, unaffected character that’s at once refreshing among its rivals. Anyone interested in a compact, premium-branded SUV primarily because they want a modern luxury car will find what they’re after in the Xc40.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive

Both cars are good for 402bhp and 487lb ft, and the Polestar can hit 62mph from rest in 4.7sec. Both have impressively spacious cabins, with more than enough room for four adults to travel in comfort. Cheaper, lower-powered versions of the electric XC40 will arrive in due course, but the car we tested has a list price of £60,005.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive

  • Lack of lateral support

The Recharge is based on the familiar form of the XC40 crossover. It shares its core mechanical layout with the Polestar 2. As launched in all-wheel-drive P8 form, it uses a pair of 201bhp electric motors. Power is drawn from a 78kWh battery pack that can give up to 260 miles of range under the WLTP protocol and is mounted under the floor.

Pros
  • Powerful electric powertrain

  • Lacks a conventional radiator grille
  • Fiddly map app

The XC40 PHEV is due to reach the UK shortly, but we were given a short early introduction at Volvo’s Gothenburg base in Sweden. The three-cylinder engine produces 178bhp, with the electric motor adding 80bhp. Electric unit draws power from a 10.7kWh lithium ion battery, which is located in the central drivetrain tunnel of the car, and allows for a claimed 31 miles of electric-only running.

Pros
  • Effortless electric-only running in Pure mode
  • Powerful three-cylinder engine
Cons
  • No all-wheel drive option

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The XC40 PHEV is a 1.75-tonne SUV that can run on electricity alone for short distances. Its WLTP-certified CO2 rating drops as low as 47g/km, equating to a massive benefit-in-kind tax saving. It looks as great as it always has, with the only real change to its suitably swish exterior being the addition of a charging port over the front wheel arch.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Pricier than alternatives
  • Alternatives are more fun to drive

It takes a dip of your toe and a rev of that three-cylinder motor to audibly discern its cylinder count. The car’s performance feels more than adequate around town and until you hit fifth gear. Body control, although adequate at town speeds, comes up notably short on the motorway and out of town.

Pros
  • Powerful turbocharged petrol engine

Our XC40 achieves 0-62mph in a respectable 8.5sec. The fastest variant, the T5, shaves 2.0sec off that and the slowest is the D3 AWD with automatic gearbox at 10.4sec. Volvo prides itself on leading on car safety and so it includes three safety systems as standard.

As refined and relaxing to drive as any other XC40 in its standard Comfort drive mode, even on the 20in wheels and stiffened suspension that come fitted to R-Design models as standard. In its most powerful configuration the 2.0-litre is suitably swift, with the kind of straightline pace that could bother some hot hatchbacks. Less impressive is the T5 engine’s disappointing, sub-30mpg cruising economy.

The XC40 scooped our Best Small Premium SUV gong at the 2018 Auto Express New Car Awards. Prices start from £27,610 in Momentum trim, which makes it £1,400 cheaper than the entry-level diesel. Standard kit includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, and a set of 12.3-inch digital dials. This Momentum Pro model adds bending headlights, folding door mirrors, a heated windscreen and an electric driver's seat.

The Volvo XC40 remains one of our favourite compact premium SUVs. This T4 version is the sweet spot in the petrol range. However, despite the decent performance, the comparatively thirsty engine makes it a tough sell alongside talented petrol rivals. The D3 diesel engine is still our top pick. Buyers are spoiled for choice in the compact premium SUV sector.

The XC40 Recharge T5 has a 1.5-litre three-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine working alongside an electric motor and 10.7kWh of batteries. All power is sent to the front wheels, with maximum output rated at 258bhp and 425Nm of torque. Volvo's claimed 7.3-second 0-62mph time isn't to be sniffed at. The only real weak point in the whole package is the brake recuperation.

The Volvo has a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 177bhp and 265Nm of torque. Then there's also an electric motor, which contributes 81bhp, and a 10.7kWh battery that can, in theory, power the car for up to 28 miles of zero-emissions running. Volvo is certainly on a roll at the moment, but on paper at least the XC40 looks ambitiously priced.

The XC40 P8 is the first Volvo to feature an infotainment system powered by Android Automotive. The car uses a seat sensor to trigger its key detection, so you can just get in, push it into D and drive, like a Tesla. There's next to no electric motor whine to speak of - no mean feat when you have a front-mounted unit as well as one on the rear axle.

Where the XC60 and the S/V/XC90 come with nigh-on everything, it's all scaled back a little for the new XC40. But you still get sat-nav, voice activation and LED headlights as standard. Volvo On Call lets you control various functions from your phone, and can alert the authorities if you prang it into a dyke again.

There are no diesels, but there's a variety of petrols, mild hybrids and plug-in hybrids. You can choose front- or all-wheel drive, and spec from the modest to the full monty. For the P8, though, it's First Edition spec or nothing.

The XC40 is the first car to use Volvo's CMA underpinnings, which are different from the SPA componentry used in the larger XC60 and 90. You sit high and upright, with a good amount of glass and a level of design flair that too many other manufacturers confine to the front. The boot has a decent 460 litres of luggage space with the rear seats up, or 1336 litres with them down.

The seats are terrific, and the driving position is generally fine. It's an SUV position, with your back upright and your legs down. Rear leg and headroom are fine for adults. Kids might find the rising window line chops off their sideways view. And the XC40 provides plenty of ports to charge them, as well aswifi. Cabin storage is the sum of some clever ideas.
