Review

It might be some time since we voted the multitalented 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.

Trim: R DESIGN

Our favourite trim. This adds seats trimmed in leather and suede, power-folding door mirrors, privacy glass and multicoloured ambient interior lighting to everything you get with cheaper Momentum trim. You also get sports suspension which gives you a more controlled, and ultimately more comfortable, ride. 

Engine: 2.0 B4P

This 2.0-litre petrol engine packs almost 200bhp, so acceleration is surprisingly nippy. However, it's also quite pricey to buy and you'll be spending a lot at the pumps. The cheaper T3 makes a lot more sense.
