Review

It might be some time since we voted the multitalented Volvo 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. Just be aware that the plug-in hybrid Recharge versions aren't as good to drive as regular petrol models.

get the best price

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.

This 2.0-litre petrol engine packs almost 200bhp, so acceleration is surprisingly nippy. The best option is the cheaper and more fuel-efficient front-wheel drive version, because when you add four-wheel drive the fuel consumption gets a lot worse. The cheaper T3 makes a lot more sense.
