Introduction

What Car? says...

Looking at the distinctive design of the Volvo XC40, you begin to wonder if the German premium brands have it wrong – their ‘Russian doll’ designs lead to a very strong resemblance between models, which often leaves you struggling to tell one from another. At the very least, Volvo's creativity is jolly refreshing.

Of course, the XC40 does retain some distinctive Volvo design cues. Its Thor’s Hammer headlight design and equally striking LED rear lights, for instance, ape the company’s other models, keeping the bloodline recognisable.

Now, the Volvo XC40 is a former What Car? Car of the Year so it's no secret that it's good. But it's been around a while now, so is it still a better buy than rival family SUVs, such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Range Rover Evoque? Read on to find out.

If you decide to buy a Volvo XC40, or any other car for that matter, take a look at the latest deals available through our free What Car? New Car Buying service. You could save plenty on the brochure price without any tedious haggling.
