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. The T4 plug-in hybrid is a great choice for both private buyers and company car drivers.

Range-topping Recharge 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 2.0-litre petrol engine packs 194bhp, so acceleration is surprisingly nippy with 0-62mph taking just 8.4sec for the front-wheel drive model. That's the best option, because it is cheaper and more fuel-efficient than the four-wheel drive version. The B4 is a good engine and well worth considering if you need a bit more oomph than the T3 provides.
