Review

The multitalented XC40 is so good we named it our 2018 What Car? Car of the Year. It blends practicality traits, such as good passenger space and a very practical boot, with comfort, a quality interior and a top-notch safety rating. That means you are not only buying a stylish product, but one backed up by substance, too. Overall it's a better family SUV than a BMW X1 or X2, but check out the Range Rover Evoque before you buy, which is a fine car and the XC40’s strongest rival.

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 T4

If you want petrol power and the T5 sounds a bit too hot but the T3 sounds a bit too cold, is the T4 a perfect fit? Well, it's certainly smoother and far punchier than the T3, so is definitely worth considering, but the T5 is quicker and smoother still. Real-world fuel economy isn't very good, though, proving to be barely any more efficient than the thirsty T5. Only available with an automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive.
