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
Inscription trim pushes up the price, but not unbearably so. If you fancy some luxury, you might well be tempted. Leather seat trim, metallic paint, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, front parking sensors, a powered tailgate, multicolour theatre ambient lighting, wood trim inlays and a crystal gearlever on automatic versions are all standard.
Engine: 2.0 D4 
Noticeably more muscular than the D3 and T3 engines, this D4 engine is also quicker than an equivalent diesel Volkswagen Tiguan. The XC40 offers stronger, more flexible performance at low revs, so it's definitely worth considering if you want a bit more power from your family SUV, but it does push the price up. Only available with an automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive.
