Design and Performance

The new Volvo XC40 compact luxury crossover accommodates five passengers and delivers a great view of the outdoors with its high seating position. These seats, specifically designed for the XC40, provide first-class support and comfort for short as well as longer road trips. All three trims, Momentum, Inscription, and R-Design are powered by a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine paired with an eight-speed Geartronic™ automatic transmission. The T4 front-wheel-drive base engine produces 187-hp and 221 lb-ft of torque and achieves an estimated 36 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city. Whereas, the optional all-wheel-drive T5 powertrain with paddle shifters generates 248-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and earns an estimated 31 mpg of highway driving and 23 mpg of city driving.

Interior Features

Volvo’s T-Tec upholstery, cloth cushions with synthetic leather bolsters, comes standard and includes added flexibility with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. A Wi-Fi hotspot, two USB ports, SiriusXM® satellite radio with an eight-speaker high-performance audio system, and a 12V power outlet in the cargo area are also included. The Volvo On Call smartphone app provides remote access to lock your doors and start your engine. This futuristic app also includes digital key integration to allow you to share your XC40 with other family members remotely. Leather-appointed seating, wireless charging, a hidden in-cabin storage bin, and a panoramic moonroof are optional.


Volvo vehicles are designed with safety in mind, and the 2020 XC40 is no exception. City Safety collision avoidance technology incorporating rear collision and oncoming lane mitigation support, lane-keeping aid, run-off road mitigation, driver alert control, road sign information, a rear park assist camera, and an advanced airbag system come standard. Available safety features consist of a blind spot information system with cross traffic alert, front and rear park assist, adaptive cruise control, active bending lights, and a 360-degree surround-view camera.
