From its high-strength-steel safety cage to its standard and available IntelliSafe Assisted Safety Technologies the XC40 makes driving safer and easier. That’s why it was named a Top Safety Pick Plus by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Available all-wheel drive adds even more confidence and your choice of two turbocharged engines deliver efficient power and a no-compromise driving experience. Inside the cabin your XC40 surrounds you with luxury—and ingenious storage. From the bins in the front door to the payload space behind the front seats there’s over 57 cubic feet of available cargo space. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an XC40 that’s all yours. The Volvo XC40. All roads lead to luxury.

City Safety warns you of hazards ahead—and applies the brakes if you don’t. Lane Keeping Aid keeps you centered in your lane. The Volvo XC40.
