Review

It might be some time since the multitalented XC40 won our 2018 What Car? Car of the Year award, but we reckon it still cuts the mustard. It blends generous passenger space and a very practical boot with a quality interior and a top-notch safety rating. That means you are not only buying a stylish product, but one backed up with some substance. It's a better family SUV than a BMW X1 or X2, but check out the Range Rover Evoque as well, which is the XC40’s strongest rival.

Trim: Momentum

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.

Engine: 1.5 T3 [163]

The cheapest engine is the 161bhp 1.5-litre turbocharged T3 petrol, which is available exclusively with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive. It's fine for anyone doing relatively low miles primarily around town, but it's certainly no ball of fire out on the open road.
