Awarded KBB’s Best New Model award for 2019 & Editor’s Pick by Car & Driver 2020
So good is the 2020 Volvo XC40 compact-crossover SUV that in its first year of production, it snagged two KBB Best Buy Awards, as well as the hearts of the KBB editorial staff. The XC40 runs in a crowded field, with rivals like the Audi Q3, Lexus NX and the BMW X1 hot on its heels. But the overall look, feel and driving experience in the XC40 really sets it apart, an observation borne out by its strong sales.
This 2-row/5-passenger crossover SUV seems to have the right combination of looks, size and features, not to mention a price young, affluent buyers are looking for. With a long list of sophisticated options and a powerful 2.0-liter turbo engine, the 2020 XC40 SUV is an all-around winner.
You may not be able to tell a book by its cover, but the 2020 Volvo XC40 drives true to its exterior identity. It’s strong, fun and dynamic, yet also sensible. The turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the T5 models is more powerful than its 248 horsepower suggests. In fact, it’s a little dynamo of a powertrain, smartly connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This little luxury SUV has plenty of get-up-and-go, with a 6.2-second 0-60-mph time and guts in reserve for higher-speed passing.
The XC40 is exceptionally nimble and easy to maneuver, whether in a parking lot or on the highway. The XC40 is comfortable and adept at absorbing road imperfections. It’s fun to push on a winding road. We appreciated the XC40 T5’s all-wheel drive and 8.3 inches of ground clearance while test-driving during a severe rainstorm. Grip was commendable when pushed on the slick roads and confidence-inspiring in general. The high seating position is excellent.
The XC40’s interior weds form and function into a masterpiece of design. The union creates a visual smorgasbord for the eye while simultaneously inventing storage spaces where none existed before. A perfect example is the available rear-storage solution that permits the rear cargo floor to be folded up, creating a secure cargo box buttressing the rear seatback.
Volvo has always excelled at seat comfort and the XC40’s front buckets are no exception, offering excellent back and leg support as well as a high perch for improved outward visibility.
The XC40’s cockpit is thoroughly modern, with a 12.3-inch digital driver display and large 9-inch center touch screen for the audio, climate and settings.
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
In the 2020 XC40, Volvo has maximized a small space, creating unique cubbies and storage spots throughout the cabin. By moving the speakers from their traditional spot in the doors, for example, Volvo engineers free up more storage space. Likewise, a clever foldout glove-compartment hook can be employed to hold a plastic grocery bag or purse.
With plenty of tech paired with a fun-to-drive nature, the 2020 Volvo XC40’s fresh and spunky looks are aimed directly at hip and luxury-minded buyers. The interior offers comfort and spaciousness along with a decidedly Swedish atmosphere found in all of today’s Volvos. The all-wheel-drive T5 is powered by a potent 248-hp turbo-four.
The supportive seats are comfortable for extended stays and both rows are spacious. There’s also abundant cargo stowage and plenty of bins and auxiliary repositories to keep things.
***Red Key included – The Red Key (or restricted key) accessory lets you limit many functions of your Volvo to help ensure the vehicle is being operated safely. For example, if you have an inexperienced driver in your household you can set certain parameters such as the max speed or radio volume to help promote safe driving practices.
