The Volvo XC40 is the authentic SUV for the city. High ground clearance, large wheels and true SUV proportions give it a powerful stance. From the bold front grille to the beautifully detailed taillights it is every inch a Volvo. Uniquely Scandinavian, unmistakably urban, it is built for city life.

  • Bold, progressive design is the hallmark of the Volvo XC40, and the cabin embodies forward-thinking Scandinavian style. An uncluttered layout lets you focus on the beautiful details, while the high seating position means you always feel in control. Carefully crafted and selected materials indulge the senses, and intuitive technology puts you in command. The cabin of the XC40 is a place that will inspire you on every journey.

  • The inventive storage solutions in the Volvo XC40 are the result of us listening to our customers and understanding what they want from their cars. The front door pockets are each large enough for a laptop, handbag or even three large drinks bottles. This feature is made possible by Air Woofer Technology™, a Volvo Cars innovation that uses an audio speaker mounted behind the dashboard, rather than the doors, to free up space where you need it most. It is just one of the many ways that the Volvo XC40 helps to make every day easier.

  • Everything starts with people at Volvo Cars – it is why we look, listen, and design cars around their needs. And it is why the Volvo XC40 is full of practical, versatile features that help you carry what you want as easily as possible. If you need to carry bulky or unusually tall items then you can fold the rear seat backrests flat at the touch of a button. There are also four load-securing eyelets to keep delicate items safe and to protect the car’s occupants. Whatever type of load you need to carry, your Volvo XC40 helps make it effortless.

  • Every interaction in the Volvo XC40 feels natural and intuitive. From the easy-to-use centre touch screen to the high-resolution driver display and voice control that understands normal speech, technology is there to make things simple. It is as familiar and intuitive as using your phone. You can control most functions via the centre display with touch screen – its portrait format and bold, clear graphics make it easy to read, and it is so responsive that you can use it wearing gloves.
