Having gained popularity in the full-size and mid-size classes, in autumn of 2017, Volvo presents the most compact of its crossovers: the XC40. The car was built based on the latest CMA platform, which allows producing both modifications with traditional ICEs and hybrids, which means, that the car offered the same choice as the older models did.
Externally, the car continued the theme of the new Scandinavian style set by Thomas Ingenlath. At the same time, the equipment of the XC40 emphasizes that Volvo rightfully classifies this model as a premium crossover class – for example, the owner can use smartphone contactless charging and the ventilated Harman Kardon system subwoofer under the windshield allowed to refuse from the low-frequency woofers in the doors and, thereby, save space for comfortable pockets.
The XC40 received the title of 'Car of the Year' in Europe for the combination of properties offered to the buyer in early 2018.
