Volvo has introduced the smallest SUV in India, the XC40. The XC40 made its global debut last year and is based on the same versatile CMA platform developed by Geely and Volvo. The entry-level crossover is positioned below the XC60 and XC90 as the third model in Volvo's SUV line-up.
The XC40 is unmistakably a Volvo. The new Volvo stays true to the 40.1 Concept. It has the signature Thor Hammer headlamps with a horizontal louvred grille. The hood is clamshell and the D-Pillar carries a floating roof design. Being a crossover, the necessary black cladding is present around the wheel arches, side skirts, front and rear bumper. The tail lights are vertically stacked similar to the one seen on its elder siblings. All in all, the XC40 expresses a lot through its design and is easily among the better-looking cars in its segment.
On the inside, Volvo’s new cabin design is evident. The large nine-inch infotainment screen is present, flanked by vertical air-con vents. It comes with smartphone integration. The instrument cluster gets a 12.3-inch TFT digital display. The overall layout is subtle and classy with a good choice of materials used. The space inside the cabin also looks promising. There is ample storage space and also a provision for induction phone charging. The XC40 is one of the best-equipped crossovers in its segment.
Under the muscular hood of the XC40 rests Volvo’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine paired to an eight-speed automatic. The motor produces 190bhp and 400Nm which is transferred to the Haldex AWD system. The XC40 gets a full suite of driving aids including lane-keep assist, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. Being a Volvo, the XC40 comes loaded with safety and equipment. Safety and driver assistance features on the XC40 include Volvo Cars’ Pilot Assist system, city safety, run-off road protection and mitigation, cross traffic alert with brake support and the 360° camera.
The XC40 is the Swedish carmaker’s take on the Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1, Range Rover Evoque and Audi Q3.
