Produced at Volvo's plant in Ghent, Belgium, the XC40 is a direct competitor to the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Mercedes GLA and the recently launched Jaguar E-PACE. He spoke about the XC40 having its own DNA and design language created from building blocks and strong graphics that gave its SUV look and Scandinavian premium feel.
"The XC40 is our first entry in the small SUV segment, broadening the appeal of the Volvo brand and moving it in a new direction", said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive. No dimensions have been revealed yet, but as Volvo says the baby SUV has been "designed primarily for the city" we would expect it to be considerably shorter and narrower than an XC60. Those after a diesel can have the front or four-wheel drive 148bhp D4 engine or the four-wheel drive 187bhp D5. The T4 and T5 use the same engine but uprated to 187bhp and 247bhp respectively, and both are only available with all-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox. Of course this works through an app and the owner has to give authority to the third party to use the auto. Top-spec Inscription cars gain even plusher leather for the seats, all-round parking sensors, extra chrome exterior garnish, a powered tailgate, wooden dashboard inlays and heated front seats with power adjustment on the driver's side.
