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

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

As you might expect from looking at them side by side in a parking lot, the Audi Q5 and the Audi SQ5 are two versions of the same small luxury crossover SUV. The SQ5 offers more power and some extra performance along with a few added luxury touches to help it feel a bit more premium.

Pros
Impressively comfortable ride for a sport-tuned SUV
Generous space for passengers
Luxurious but restrained interior design
Nimble handling

Cons
Lack of touchscreen functionality limits smartphone integration usefulness

By: 
edmunds.com

Thankfully, the Audi SQ5 is a lot more comfortable than most of them. Its standard adaptive suspension will let you choose between sporty or more comfortable settings, but the optional adaptive air suspension irons out bumps better than any other sporty SUV. It’ll also lower the car’s ride height at speed to make it more stable and you can raise it by 45mm if you fancy a spot of light off-roading.

Pros
Very fast
Great build quality
Spacious interior

Cons
Expensive options
Diesel engine only
Pricey compared to alternatives

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The SQ5 displays great balance between driving dynamics and comfort, proving its worth in a competitive class.

Pros
Numerous standard interior features,
well-balanced ride,
surprisingly fuel efficient.

Cons
Passenger volume and cargo space is lacking,
bland exterior design,
falls short to its rivals in terms of performance.
