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.

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:

2.0 T5

Much more muscular than the other engines, the T5 is the quickest unit in the XC40 lineup by quite some way. It whisks you up to speed easily, and feels properly lively when you rev it hard. However, the diesel D4 is more relaxing to drive because it has more flexible performance at low revs, so it's more recommendable. Plus, the T5 doesn't have particularly brilliant fuel economy. Only available with an automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive.
