Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The XC40 Recharge is an all-new model for Volvo this year and represents the Swedish brand's first foray into all-electric propulsion—that's if you don't count its Polestar division's new Polestar 2 EV.

Pros
Attractive styling,
peppy acceleration,
thoughtfully designed cabin.

Cons
Key rivals offer more driving range,
hefty curb weight,
much pricier than the gasoline model.

For 2021 New fully electric version of the XC40,402 horsepower,Estimated 208 miles of range.

Pros
Quick acceleration
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Practical SUV body style

Cons
Less range than rival EVs
Below-average energy efficiency
Small cargo area

By:

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric has an appealing interior, a decent electric range, rapid performance and impressive safety credentials. It’s expensive next to many rivals, but the lower-spec models stack up fairly well next to similarly premium (if often larger and, in some cases, more fun) alternatives.

Pros
High-quality interior
Rapid performance
Decent range

Cons
Expensive next to many rivals
Fiddly infotainment menus
No traditional PCP finance

With warm hatch performance matched to all-wheel drive surety, the Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro is arguably the sweet spot in the German car maker's compact SUV range.

Pros
Quick without being manically so
Adroit handling
Edgy styling
Seamless seven-speed S tronic transmission
Excellent off-road dynamics

Cons
Plenty of road and wind noise
Some cheap elements in the cabin
Pretty cramped second row
Boot space well short of class leaders

By:

The 2018 Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI Quattro has arrived, and it all makes sense. And there have been a couple of extra little tweaks to the Audi Q2 2018 range.
There isn't much major visual differentiation between the newly added 2.0 TFSI Quattro version and the more affordable petrol model aside from this version rolling on 18-inch wheels as opposed to the 17s of the base petrol, and the entry-level model misses out on body-colour mouldings around the wheels, side skirts and bumpers. Both the quattro models look identical to one another.

Pros
Decent levels of equipment
New petrol AWD model is a peach
A fairly charming thing overall

Cons
Limited boot space in quattro models
Back seat isn't massive
Lacks some storage

By: 
carsguide.com.au

The Audi Q2 is a small SUV with a smart interior, plenty of optional high-tech touches and a raised driving position, but the rear seats are quite upright and therefore not particularly comfy.

Pros
Relaxing to drive
Stylish, well-built interior
Great high-tech options

Cons
Back seats a little too upright
Expensive top-spec models
Poor rear visibility
