The Volvo XC40 is the smallest, and the newest, SUV in the Volvo lineup. Recently added to our stable of incredible Volvo models, this four-door, five-passenger SUV has been turning heads and giving us a lot to talk about. It delivers standout Volvo style, with an impressive frontend that other drivers will notice coming, even from a distance. Subcompact and smaller than the compact Volvo XC60, this is an SUV that makes a big first impression, especially when customized with an optional two-tone color scheme with contrasting roof. Not only does its design set it apart from other Volvo models within its own lineup, it also makes it unique among the competition, none of which offer a two-tone color scheme option.


As a high-end Volvo model, it should come as no surprise to anyone in the Tempe or Mesa area that the XC40 has all your needs for technology and comfort met. There are three great trim levels available here, each of which comes with a comprehensive list of cutting-edge features and amenities. Some are designed to keep you connected while you're on the road, including the standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and USB ports. Meanwhile, other features are there to make your ride more comfortable than the competition, including standard auto-dimming rearview mirror, memory settings for the driver's seat, and a power-adjustable driver's seat. Plus, additional features for comfort and tech are available in optional packages or upper trims.


One of the reasons why drivers everywhere prefer a high-end Volvo above the competition is the safety features Volvo pours into each model. This reputation for innovation in safety is obvious in every 2020 Volvo XC40, which comes with a list of safety technologies that is more comprehensive than the competition. For example, every XC40 has standard lane departure warning, lane departure mitigation, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking, while many of these features are considered optional on competing crossovers.
