The multitalented XC40 is so good we named it our 2018 Car of the Yearread the full model review
This very well-equipped entry-spec model comes with cruise control, keyless start, dual-zone climate control and a 9.0in tablet-style touchscreen with sat-nav, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. You also get digital instruments, 18in alloy wheels, LED headlights, driver and passenger electric lumbar adjustment and rear parking sensors. Safety kit includes automatic emergency braking, lane assist and traffic sign recognition. For many, this will be enough.
The cheapest way into the Volvo XC40 lineup. The entry-level 1.5-litre petrol engine is aimed at those doing relatively low miles who drive mostly in town. It needs to be worked hard to get motorway-merging performance, so we'd definitely look further up the range for something more powerful and better suited to the XC40. Only available with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive
