Review

The multitalented XC40 is so good we named it our 2018 What Car? Car of the Year. It blends practicality traits, such as good passenger space and a very practical boot, with comfort, a quality interior and a top-notch safety rating. That means you are not only buying a stylish product, but one backed up by substance, too. Overall it's a better family SUV than a BMW X1 or X2, but check out the Range Rover Evoque before you buy, which is a fine car and the XC40’s strongest rival.

Trim: R DESIGN

Even better-equipped, sportier-looking and still reasonably priced, R-Design is our favourite. It adds sports seats trimmed in leather and nubuck, power-folding door mirrors, privacy glass and multicolour ambient theatre lighting. It's worth adding a few options, though, such as the excellent Convenience Pack that includes keyless entry, a powered tailgate, power-folding rear seats and multiple other practicality aids, along with the Intellisafe Pro pack that adds additional safety aids and semi-autonomous driving.
