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.

This model is based on the standard R-Design, but adds adaptive LED headlights, heated front seats, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, headlight washers, a heated windscreen and 20in alloy wheels.

Engine:

2.0 D3

The cheapest diesel engine in the lineup is also the best fit for the XC40. It's more flexible at low engine speeds than the T3, so although it's not a great deal faster you don't have to work it so hard to make progress. Plus, it returns impressive real-world fuel economy. Available with an automatic or manual gearbox, as well as front or four-wheel drive.
