The Volvo XC40 is a new type of Volvo, yet it remains true to the way Volvo has always created its cars – designed around you. With design and innovation to make your life more enjoyable and less complicated, because Volvo thinks you should enjoy every drive in your car, no matter how short or long the journey.
The command Centre with a raised seating position and uncluttered cabin design, the Volvo XC40 elevates you above the everyday and puts you in control. Beautiful details and carefully selected materials are the mark of true Swedish craftsmanship. The interior of the Volvo XC40 is shaped by a uniquely Swedish appreciation of light. An optional panoramic roof floods the interior with natural light by day. You can also add LED interior lighting that highlights the beautifully sculpted dashboard and exclusive decor panels at night.
The Volvo XC40 is filled with Volvo’s latest technology to deliver an experience that rewards and fulfils. One where you always feel in control, and where technology is there to support you and make every interaction second nature. The Volvo XC40 has a storage space on the tunnel console where a mobile phone can be stored and wirelessly charged, reducing clutter and making it easy to reach. The phone rests at just the right angle for you to pick it up easily, or glance at it if you need to.
Sensus connects you with your Volvo and the rest of the world. First-class sound systems let you enjoy your favorite music as the artist intended. Power retractable door mirrors and rear park assist supports your parking, and adding 360° camera and Park Assist Pilot, you’ll enjoy perfect parking with total confidence – even in tight spaces.
Experience a sustainable and energising drive with the Recharge plug-in hybrid T5. By combining our highly efficient, compact 4 Cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor, this innovative plug-in hybrid powertrain delivers powerful performance on the road while allowing zero emission commuting. You'll easily adjust the powertrain characteristics to suit your mood and needs.
Hybrid mode is default and uses both engines to optimise comfort and range, for example during longer drives. Pure mode means 100% electric drive with zero emissions and is active at speeds up to 125 km/h – perfect for smooth city commuting. And choosing Power mode, the powertrain, gearbox, brakes and steering interact to maximise performance and provide a dynamic, engaging driving experience. Off-road mode optimises stability and traction on poor roads at lower speeds.
There's also an Individual mode where you can configure your own customized driving characteristics. Regenerative braking is a feature that extends the range with electrical power and gives smooth, powerful braking. Every time you release the accelerator or press the brake pedal, electric energy is fed back to the battery. The compact battery is mounted at the centre of the car for balanced weight distribution with a low centre of gravity. So you can enjoy sure-footed handling and unaffected space for passengers and cargo.
To give you the most responsive and fuel-efficient driving experience, the powertrain is mated to our quick-shifting 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission and drives on the front wheels.
With four cameras providing a 360° view, our system can help you park confidently even in confined spaces.
Day or night, our intelligent safety assistance technology can help you detect and avoid other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and large animals. It does this by first warning the driver then auto braking or through emergency steering support if the driver fails to react.*
Cross traffic alert with autobrake supports the driver when reversing with limited view. The system can detect vehicles crossing behind and if needed, the autobrake can be applied.**
Our blind spot information system (BLIS) provides active support when changing lanes. If there is a risk of collision with other vehicles in the adjacent lane, BLIS can subtly adjust steering, helping keep you, your car and your loved ones right where you mean to be.
Your Volvo can send a subtle vibration through the steering wheel and help steer you back to the center if you unintentionally start to drift out of your lane.
