Highlights From Her History

The first model year released was the 2019 Volvo XC40, and she has been growing in popularity ever since. Now that she's in her fourth year of production, she has some bragging to do.

Last year alone, she won eight awards across several categories. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) made her a Top Safety Pick Plus, and Kelley Blue Book gave her an award for Best Resale Value. Even Consumer Guide recognized her prowess and awarded her the Automotive Best Buy Awards for the Premium Subcompact Crossover.

The competition she is up against include the following models:

  • Subaru Forester
  • Nissan Rogue
  • Mercedes-Benz GLA 250
  • Volkswagen Tiguan

Which Engine & Drivetrain Combination Will You Choose?

A turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine lies beneath the hood of every Volvo XC40, making power a guarantee. She also comes with an automatic eight-speed transmission for incredible handling that excels no matter where your next adventure might take you.

Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard with every trim, but you can always upgrade to all-wheel drive (AWD) for an extra fee. Drive mode control is included with both options so that you can customize your handling based on the current road conditions. If you opt for the Volvo XC40 R-Design, then you are privy to additional performance features, including sport pedals, a sport-leather gear shift, and a sport steering wheel.

These Performance Specs are Exhilarating

Power is within your grasp when you step behind the wheel of the Volvo XC40. The T5 engine takes just 6.1 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph. She also gives you 248 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque.

If you decide to stick with the T4 powertrain, this model will take you 8.1 seconds to reach 60 mph and reduce your overall power. However, the 187 horsepower and 221 lb.-ft. of torque will still give you an athletic drive.

Stay Away From the Pump With Her Fuel Economy

High gas prices won't faze you when you're driving a Volvo XC40. She will give you an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 23/32/26 (city/highway/combined) mpg2 when driving with the T4 powertrain. The sustainable goal that Volvo Cars strives to achieve is the reason for these incredible values.

They hope to create an all-electric lineup by 2040, although that hasn't held them back from improving on their gasoline-powered vehicles. Step into the future of cars and save yourself money at the pump when you invest in a new Volvo XC40.
