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

By: 
whatcar.com

PROS
PHEV drivetrain enables limited electric running at speeds up to 135km/h
Excellent blend of everyday comfort, refinement and performance
3500kg towing capacity
It shares its drivetrain with the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid

CONS
PHEV drivetrain adds handsomely to the weight
Li-ion battery robs 70L of boot space
Lacks the traditional hardened performance focus for which Volkswagen R models are renowned

“A curious mix of speed and efficiency with a big dollop of comfort. It's just not especially fun ”

PROS
Comfy,
plush,
quick and a company car bargain

CONS
Not as nimble as a Cayenne

By: 
topgear.com

The VW Touareg R is comfortable, well-equipped and effortless to drive, but not sharp or engaging enough to be considered a true sports SUV. That leaves it in somewhat of a no man’s land. Put simply, those looking for a fast yet relatively frugal sports SUV would be better served by the similarly priced Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid, while those wanting a luxurious and well-rounded plug-in hybrid luxury SUV would be better off with the BMW X5 xDrive45e.

PROS
Well-equipped
Spacious inside for up to five people
Very quiet in electric mode

CONS
Cheap-feeling interior
Fussy infotainment system
Not very exciting to drive
