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. If you do buy one, we recommend the B3 petrol engine and mid-spec Plus trim.

Range-topping 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 entry-level 2.0-litre engine puts out 161bhp and reaches 62mph from rest in a respectable 8.6sec. It’s punchy enough for most and costs significantly less than the B4P.
