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: Inscription

Inscription trim pushes up the price, but not unbearably so; if you fancy some luxury, you might well be tempted. Full leather upholstery, metallic paint, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, front parking sensors, a powered tailgate and wood trim inlays are come as standard.

Engine: 2.0 B5P

The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine packs almost 250bhp and can hit 60mph from a standstill in just 6.1sec. It's expensive and thirsty, though, so hard to recommend.
