What Is the 2020 Volvo XC40?
The XC40 is Volvo’s smallest SUV and one of the Swedish automaker’s most impressive efforts. Stylish and nimble, the XC40 is offered with front- or all-wheel drive and a choice of two turbocharged engines: a 187-horsepower, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a 248-hp, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
What’s New on the 2020 Volvo XC40?
Fabric upholstery is now standard instead of leather, and the base Momentum trim level gains power child locks, a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror and heated windshield wipers.
What Features in the 2020 Volvo XC40 Are Most Important?
Standard active safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and lane keep assist. Standard convenience features include a 9-inch touchscreen multimedia system, a power liftgate, and power front seats with a driver’s-side memory feature.

However, rear visibility is limited and the rear-seat cushion is low and not that long. We also wish the multimedia system had more physical controls.
