2019 Volvo XC40 OverviewThe Volvo XC40 comes in three different trims for its launch this year. Each is powered by a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine displacing 2.0L, powering all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. With 248 horsepower on tap, the compact SUV is quite quick in a straight line, though it should still return over 30 mpg on the highway. For later in the year, a front-wheel drive version with a less powerful engine is expected to be added to the lineup at a slightly lower price point.
The most basic XC40 trim is dubbed the Momentum trim. Since the Volvo XC40 is still a bit of a luxury vehicle, basic amenities are pretty nice and include items such as a 12.3-inch display, a power operated liftgate, smartphone integration, a park assist camera, LED headlights, SiriusXM satellite radio, a powered driver's seat with a memory function, 18-inch wheels and tinted windows.
The next step up is the R-Design model. The R-Design comes with a slightly more aggressive exterior as well as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a navigation system, keyless entry with a hands free tailgate, 19-inch wheels, fog lights, a unique grille and various R-Design bits throughout the interior. XC40 subscribers can subscribe to the R-Design model for an additional $100.
The top-of-the-line model for 2019 is the Inscription model. The Inscription has a luxuriously appointed interior which includes details such as driftwood Deco trim and a crystal gear knob. The Inscription model also comes standard with a panoramic roof, nicer seats and a leather clad interior.
2019 Volvo XC40 Model Changes
The Volvo XC40 is a brand new compact SUV from the Swedish marque. Over the past couple of decades, Volvo has steadily moved upmarket, building a reputation for itself as a luxury automaker with a strong emphasis on design and innovation. The XC40 helps move Volvo back closer to the mainstream without losing what made the company successful in the last few years.
2019 Volvo XC40 Value
The Volvo XC40 is a compact luxury SUV competing with the likes of the BMW X1, Mercedes GLA and Audi Q3. The Volvo XC40 has a base price of $35,200 for 2019, but that price is expected to dip a little lower once Volvo introduces a new base model later in the year. And while that price might be smack dab in the middle of its competitors, Volvo has offered a unique way of "owning" the new XC40. For $600 a month, people can "subscribe" to the compact SUV, paying for it on a monthly basis. Volvo claims that there is no long-term commitment and that insurance and maintenance are included in that price, making it a pretty sweet deal for anyone who only needs a car for a couple of years and who doesn't want to deal with many of the traditional hassles of car ownership.
2019 Volvo XC40 Strengths
Compact size for a Volvo; available all-wheel drive; traditional Volvo levels of safety; Swedish good looks; interior; unique pricing model for those who want it
