Video: Volvo XC40 2018 review | Can Volvo SUV match Audi Q3 or BMW X1?
Smaller than the XC60 and XC90, the XC40 sits on brand new architecture and is designed to rival other small SUVs like the Audi Q3 and BMW X1 – how does it compare to its rivals?
The Volvo XC40 is Volvo’s latest SUV/4×4/crossover/call it what you will. Smaller than the XC60 and XC90, sits on a brand new Volvo compact architecture and is designed to rival other small SUVs like the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Jaguar E-Pace.
How does it go about it? By not being a complete facsimile of larger Volvos. It’s blockier, funkier, and bolder in design both inside and out. And it doesn’t follow the norm when it comes to driving, either, as we discover. Instead of trying to make it sporty, Volvo has chilled and given the XC40 a relaxed driving style all of its own.
Where does that leave it in its compact SUV class? Join the Autocar car team as we take to the road in an XC40 2.0 D4.
