Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Volvo XC40 comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Leather upholstery replaced by a cloth and faux-leather combo on base trim.More standard features for the R-Design and Inscription trims.

PROS
Pleasing interior with premium materials
Clever small-item storage and cargo solutions
Plenty of standard and available safety features

CONS
Steep learning curve for touchscreen interface
Cargo area is small for the class

As with other 2020 Volvo models, all XC40s come standard with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Cloth seats replace the previously standard leather on the base Momentum model, though it remains available as an option; leather remains standard on the R-Design and Inscription models. The Momentum now features power child locks for the rear doors, an automatically dimming rearview mirror, and heated windshield wiper blades. A panoramic roof is standard on the R-Design. The ability to power fold the rear seats has evaporated from the XC40 lineup.

Pros
Fun and funky styling, refined interior, technologically advanced features.

Cons
Coarse engine sound, unexceptional fuel economy, slow-to-respond infotainment system.
