Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Even though it sits at the small end of the Volvo lineup, the XC40 offers much of what makes the brand's larger SUVs so desirable.

Pros
Bold and boxy exterior,
practical but stylish cabin,
generous standard features.

Cons
Unrefined powertrains,
so-so fuel economy,
laggy infotainment display.
