The hood is clamshell and the D-Pillar carries a floating roof design. Being a crossover, the necessary black cladding is present around the wheel arches, side skirts, front and rear bumper. The tail lights are designed similar to the one seen on its elder siblings. This is the first Volvo to be based on the new CMA modular vehicle architecture co-developed by Volvo and Geely. This platform will underpin all other upcoming cars in the 40 Series including fully electrified vehicles. Volvo says that the CMA provides all the necessary economies of scale for this segment.

On the inside, Volvo’s new cabin design is evident. The large nine-inch infotainment screen is present, flanked by vertical air-con vents. It comes with smartphone integration. The instrument cluster gets a 12.3-inch TFT digital display. The overall layout is subtle and classy with a good choice of materials used. The space inside the cabin also looks promising. There is ample stowage and also a provision for induction phone charging. Being a Volvo, the XC40 comes loaded with safety and equipment. Safety and driver assistance features on the XC40 include Volvo Cars’ Pilot Assist system, city safety, run-off road protection and mitigation, cross traffic alert with brake support and the 360° camera. The XC40 is one of the best-equipped crossovers in its segment.

Drive-Train:

The newly unveiled XC40 is available with a D4 diesel and a T5 petrol four-cylinder Drive-E engine options.

Both the engines get an all-wheel-drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Hence expect the XC40 to retail somewhere between Rs 40– 45 lakhs (ex-showroom).

It would be a wonderful product and will attract a lot of buyers towards it as the looks, features, practicality, everything is there.
