About the XC40

Volvo’s subcompact luxury SUV the XC40 was introduced in 2017. The goal for the Swedish automaker was to enter the surging market of luxury crossovers. The release of the XC40 also marked the first 5-door compact from Volvo.

Having a luxury subcompact crossover in their roster meant Volvo was now able to compete with the likes of the BMW X1 and the Volkswagen Taos, which it did excellently.

The year after the release of the XC40 saw it receive multiple Car of the Year awards like the prestigious European Car of the Year and What Car? awards.

The XC40 comes in as the smaller sibling to Volvo’s other SUV offerings, being the XC60 and finally the XC90. Being a compact SUV, the XC40 still offers a host of luxury fittings, all accompanied by the practicality that SUVs are renowned for.

There are a number of drivetrain configurations available for the XC40, including 1.5-liter 3-cylinder and 2-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engines. For those who prefer to drive a diesel, the XC40 also had the option for a 2-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel.

All of the engine options were available in front and all-wheel drive, making the car more than capable on rougher terrain. XC40s found in the United States were limited to just the 2-liter gasoline engines in the T4 and T5 trims.

In 2019, Volve debuted the XC40 Recharge, a fully electric model of the little SUV. This came as the manufacturer’s commitment to making at least half of their offerings fully electric by 2025. This comes as no surprise with Europe leading the current vehicle landscape into a more sustainable future.

The XC40 Recharge was launched with a range of about 400 km, depending on driving style. The electric motor is capable of a more modest 78 kWh in comparison to its siblings fitted with combustion engines.
