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. There are however better plug-in hybrid SUVs out there, should you be considering a T5 Recharge.

Trim: Inscription Pro

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.

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, partially because it’s automatic and four-wheel drive only, so hard to recommend. What’s more, its 2100kg maximum towing capacity is equalled by less powerful petrol and diesel versions.
