The Volvo XC40 blends generous passenger space and a practical boot with a quality interior and top-notch safety. That makes it a hugely desirable product backed up with real substance. The T4 plug-in hybrid is a great choice for both private buyers and company car drivers.

Range-topping Recharge Ultimate adds ambient interior lighting, leather upholstery, a panoramic opening sunroof, a Harman Kardon sound system and 20-inch alloy wheels, but it’s a big price jump.

This plug-in hybrid model is worth considering for its low CO2 emissions and its ability to drive on pure battery power for around 21 miles, based on our testing. It’s pretty quick when you put your foot down, too, with 0-60mph taking just 7.1sec when we timed it.
