Hear the Volvo XC40 review on Eat Sleep Drive Repeat, the motoring podcast! Find it your favourite podcast app.

The XC40 is instantly recognisable as a Volvo, but doesn’t rely too heavily on the SUV styling that's gone before. The baby SUV has a strong, squared-off front, with standard LED headlights that include the hammer-shaped LED running lights; the R Line spec test car features a unique grille as well.

The profile features a lot of neat surface detail in the metal, with a sculpted recess lower down; a sharp upwards sweep at the rear window meets the roof in its contrasting colour, before dropping back down to form the tailgate line.

The rear is fairly straightforward; typical Volvo SUV light treatment, with the clusters running the length of the C pillar; and a pair of exhausts are neatly integrated into the lower section of the bumper.

The XC40 is the first Volvo to be powered by a 3-cylinder motor. The 1500 puts out 115kW and 265Nm. More surprising that its sub-ten second 0-100 km/h time and its 210km/h top speed, though, is just how tractable the engine is. Even in a high gear at low RPM, it delivers decent shove. That means fewer gearshifts and more relaxed driving in town or on the open road, which isn’t always a feature of manual gearboxes. The XC40 is the only car in its class that’s offered with a manual gearbox, this one being a 6-speed. There is the option of an 8-speed auto as well.

The list of safety features is typically Volvo i.e. long, and includes lane keeping assist, front collision avoidance and active steering, amongst other standard safety kit. The R-Design Support Pack adds very useful things like a 360º parking camera and blind spot warning, as well as adaptive cruise control.

The XC40’s interior is exceptionally good. Spec-dependent features include heated front Nappa leather seats with memory function and high-end Harman Kardon sound system. The tablet-style interface looks great and operates flawlessly. A buttonless dashboard, all-digital instrument cluster and wireless charging are further highlights, and the overall design and comfort are unmatched at the price.

It’s also not short of practicality - the automatic tailgate and power rear seats make loading very easy; and when the seats are back in place, there’s a decent amount of passenger space in the back.
