New BMW X2 & Jaguar E-Pace vs Volvo XC40
Volvo XC40

This XC40 may have similar front and rear lights to the company’s other models to ensure a family resemblance, but the rest of the detailing and the overall proportions of the car are quite different; it certainly doesn't look as if Volvo has put the blueprints for the larger XC60 in a photocopier and set it to 75%.

The XC40 mixes style, space and comfort with cutting-edge safety and relative affordability so ably that we not only named it our favourite family SUV of 2018, we also crowned it our overall What Car? Car of the Year.
