Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2019, the XC90 has no major powertrain updates but some new standard features and updated option packages. Every model now has updated infotainment software, third-row seating, heated washer nozzles, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, and four-zone climate control, among other things. The higher trim levels have a Harman/Kardon premium stereo, navigation, sun shades in the rear side windows, and a tailored dashboard and upper door panels.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup’s best features.

Less-is-more interior
Tablet-like infotainment
Wide variety of models and trims
Standard safety tech

Cons
Not worth six figures at top end
Base powertrain lacks oomph
Rear seats could use more support
Questionable materials in places

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Volvo XC40 is a compact luxury crossover with seating for five. Two trim levels are available: the Momentum and the R-Design. Every XC40 comes loaded with luxury and safety features, including LED headlights, leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, lane keeping assist, and forward collision warning and mitigation. Upgrading to the R-Design doesn't cost much more and adds exterior styling enhancements (a black roof and black window surrounds, among others), larger wheels and more luxury features. Each is also available with several available features packages and stand-alone options.

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

CONS
Cargo area is small for the class
Steep learning curve for touchscreen interface
Rear bench seat isn't comfortable for tall passengers

The 2019 Volvo XC40 upends tradition—and traditional style—in mostly acceptable ways, and kicks off the car-subscription era with a stylish bang.

Pros
Clever interior features
Competent turbo-4 in T5 trims
Smooth 8-speed automatic
World-beating subscription model
Smart 9.0-inch touchscreen as standard

Cons
Exterior can get funky—and not the good kind
Frustrating shift knob
A Swedish car with extra-cost heated seats?
Rear bench is best for two
Will a Netflix car for broadcast buyers work?
