After months of waiting, Volvo is entering the XC40 into the crowded compact crossover segment.

  • Volvo XC40 Compact CUV

Volvo is introducing the XC40 crossover, setting a new benchmark for design, technology and safety in the compact crossover market.

Award winning technology from the 90 and 60 series cars are standard in the XC40, including safety innovations rarely offered among competitors.

The Volvo XC40 will be among the safest, well-equipped compact CUVs available.

The new XC40 represents Volvo’s third CUV and is focused on a new expression of Scandinavian design.

The XC40 is the smallest CUV offered by Volvo, preceded by Volvo’s largest utility truck, the XC90, which is the most awarded luxury SUV of the century. The mid-sized XC60 is not arriving at retailers now and has been positively received.

With the introduction of the XC40, Volvo completes its CUV range and offers three of the newest vehicles in their respective segments.

The XC40’s bold exterior is available with a range of body colors and color-contrast roof, providing up to 17 combinations.

Applications such as Spotify, Pandora and Yelp are available via the centre touch screen, as well as Volvo’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

The new XC40 is the first model on Volvo Cars’ new Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), which will underpin all other upcoming cars in the 40 Series including fully electrified vehicles.

From start of production, the XC40 will be available with a T5 four-cylinder Drive-E powertrain with all-wheel drive.

Further powertrain options, including a hybridized as well as a pure electric version, will be added later.
