Review

It might be some time since we voted the multitalented XC40 our Car of the Year, but it still cuts the mustard. It blends generous passenger space and a practical boot with a quality interior and top-notch safety. That means you aren't only buying a hugely desirable product, but one backed up with real substance.

Trim: Inscription Pro

On top of the toys included with Inscription, the Pro version adds adaptive LED headlights, heated front seats, an electrically adjustable passenger seat with memory function, headlight washers, a heated windscreen and 19in alloy wheels.

Engine: 1.5 T5 Recharge PHEV

This plug-in hybrid model is worth considering for its low CO2 emissions and its ability to drive on pure battery power for around 25 miles. It’s pretty quick when you put your foot down, too, with 0-60mph taking just 7.0sec.
