How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

If you fit comfortably in the Volvo XC40 Recharge you’ll have no trouble with the C40. The roof might be a touch lower, but that doesn’t mean six-footers will have their heads brushing the ceiling. Leg and shoulder room are fine too.

Virtually nothing has been altered from the XC40, so you get the same pop-out rubbish bin between the front seats and carpeted door pockets that are each big enough to take a laptop or two large bottles of water, plus there are sliding drawers under the front seats.

Seat folding and flexibility

The C40 has a 60/40 split folding rear bench – the same as the Q4 Sportback e-tron and XC40 Recharge – but you can't slide it back and forth. If you need a more flexible 40/20/40 arrangement, you’ll need a Mercedes EQA.
