It might be some time since the multitalented XC40 won our 2018 What Car? Car of the Year award, but we reckon it still cuts the mustard. It blends generous passenger space and a very practical boot with a quality interior and a top-notch safety rating. That means you are not only buying a stylish product, but one backed up with some substance. It's a better family SUV than a BMW X1 or X2, but check out the Range Rover Evoque as well, which is the XC40’s strongest rival.get the best price
This very well-equipped entry-spec model comes with cruise control, keyless start, dual-zone climate control and a 9.0in tablet-style touchscreen with sat-nav, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. You also get digital instruments, 18in alloy wheels, LED headlights, driver and passenger electric lumbar adjustment and rear parking sensors. Safety kit includes automatic emergency braking, lane assist and traffic sign recognition. For many, this will be enough.
Engine: 2.0 D3
The cheapest diesel engine in the lineup is also the best fit for the XC40. It's more flexible at low engine speeds than the T3, so although it's not a great deal faster you don't have to work it so hard to make progress. Plus, it returns impressive real-world fuel economy. Available with an automatic or manual gearbox, as well as front or four-wheel drive.
