2020 Volvo XC40 Review

Many automakers view smaller crossover SUVs as the next big growth opportunity. Luxury nameplates are no exception; nearly every high-end manufacturer produces at least one subcompact SUV. The Volvo XC40 is one of the newest; introduced just last year, the XC40 offers many of the qualities Volvo is known for but does so in a smaller and more affordable package.

Despite being the least expensive SUV in Volvo's lineup, cost-cutting measures are kept to a minimum. The XC40's large central touchscreen, digital instrument panel and floating air vents are nearly identical to Volvo's pricier offerings, while a robust set of driver aids keeps driver and passengers safe. In short, it's everything you would expect from a small Volvo.

Of course, the XC40 doesn't have as much passenger and cargo room as its siblings, and the interior isn't quite as nice. We also have some concerns with the lack of front-seat comfort and the difficult-to-use nature of the infotainment system. But on the whole, the XC40 is more enjoyable to drive than many of its rivals and, in many ways, represents a better value.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.8 / 10
Volvo's subcompact XC40 SUV inherits the brand's familial good looks and packs a lot of charm into a small package. We're smitten by its comfortable ride, spacious interior and excellent optional audio system. While the front-seat ergonomics and touchscreen interface could be issues for some people, overall we think the XC40 is one of the segment standouts.

How does it drive?

7.5
The XC40 feels spry overall. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine feels spunky, even if the 0-60 mph time of 6.8 seconds isn't explosive (we tested the XC40 T5). The transmission is responsive when you need a downshift. Even the engine stop-start system is fairly unobtrusive. And while we don't expect many owners to head off-road, the XC40 can handle light-duty stuff thanks to its short overhangs, all-wheel drive and 8.3 inches of ground clearance.

As for handling, the XC40 feels a little top-heavy and surprisingly soft when maneuvering at speed. The compliance helps smooth out small bumps, but big bumps and undulations really make the XC40 move around. The Infiniti QX30 and the BMW X1 feel more nimble yet better tied down.

How comfortable is it?

7.5
The ride is surprisingly comfortable, even with the sporty R-Design trim level. Small bumps are easily soaked up. However, larger bumps and undulations can upset the body. The seats are comfortably firm, but not everybody fits. In particular, you might find the headrests to be angled too far forward.

At highway speeds, there's a layer of consistent road noise as well as faintly detectable wind noise. You'll hear the turbo spool up regularly if you don't have any audio playing, and the engine note isn't particularly unpleasant. This cabin is not especially quiet, though it's not far off most others in this class.

How’s the interior?

7.5
Most controls are accessed through the touchscreen. This design approach creates a clean interior design, but the system's maze of menus and laggy responses never fail to frustrate. Another drawback: Tall drivers might not be able to find a comfortable seating position due to limited steering wheel adjustability and headrest design.

Otherwise, the XC40's interior is quite nice. It's easy to get into and out of the relatively roomy cabin, and there's enough legroom in the back for folks of an average height. There's good visibility all around, and the large windows in the rear corners help reduce blind spots.

How’s the tech?

8.0
The XC40 is suitably high-tech. The optional Harman Kardon audio system is an inexpensive step up from the base system and sounds great. You can pump in tunes with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity via the two standard USB ports. (Our test vehicle also had a wireless charging pad and rear USB ports.)

The integrated voice controls work well, though you can switch to Siri or Google when your phone is connected. There are lots of advanced driving systems here, and most work well. The exception is forward collision warning, which registered several false positives in our testing and cannot be turned off.

How’s the storage?

7.5
The XC40's cargo area is smaller according to the numbers, but it is nevertheless nicely sized and full of smart storage features. We like the smart storage features such as 60/40-split folding rear seats, a pass-through and a foldable tray that doubles as a grocery holder. There's a variety of other storage spaces in the cabin, including a clever little removable trash bin. Felt-lined doors keep items from rattling around.

Using your XC40 for kid duty? The anchors are cleanly located under flip doors, but they're buried a little deep for comfortable access. You might have the best chance of fitting a bulky rear-facing seat in this car compared to most others in the class, but it'll still be a tight fit.

How economical is it?

7.5
Our T5 all-wheel-drive R-Design trim is rated at 26 combined mpg (23 city/31 highway), which is slightly better than most AWD competitors, though the base car's mpg rating is more in line with the rest. We achieved 23.2 mpg on our 115-mile drive loop, which is more than a few mpg lower than expected.

Is it a good value?

8.0
For the price, the XC40 makes a lot of sense if you're looking for a luxury subcompact SUV. The interior build quality may not be as nice as in other Volvos we've experienced, but it's still a pleasant place to spend time. Its base price falls well below the priciest competitors, but there are others that come in a little lower. That said, the XC40 feels like a better value at its price point than many others do at theirs.

Basic and powertrain warranties are slightly longer than what you'll get from some other competing SUVs. You also get decent free maintenance and roadside assistance coverage.

Wildcard

8.5
The XC40 isn't as fun to drive as it would like you to believe. Though we appreciate the level of comfort in this tiny SUV, we had difficulty detecting the extra sportiness in the R-Design model we tested. Stiffer suspension? Really? It's not that the XC40 is a bore to drive, but the Infiniti QX30 and the BMW X1 are far more fun to fling around.

It has tons of personality, though. Volvo has been on a winning streak since the redesigned XC90 hit the streets, and that Scandinavian elegance has thankfully trickled all the way down to the XC40. The XC40 didn't quite wow us the way the XC60 did, but it is still one of the standouts in the class.

Which XC40 does Edmunds recommend?

Unless you absolutely need leather seats, we recommend sticking with the base Momentum trim. It's reasonably priced and you can equip it with many of the features of the higher trims via packages. The Convenience and Premium packages are highly recommended. They add a lot of extras without adding much to the bottom line. If you want adaptive cruise control, you'll have to opt for the Advanced package.

Volvo XC40 models

The 2020 Volvo XC40 is a compact luxury crossover with seating for five. Three trim levels are available: Momentum, R-Design and Inscription. The Momentum comes respectably equipped with luxury and safety features. Upgrading to the R-Design costs a bit more and adds exterior styling enhancements and additional luxury features, while the Inscription trades the R-Design's sporty upgrades for even more amenities. Each trim is also available with several features packages and stand-alone options.

The XC40 is sold with two powertrains, both using a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The front-wheel-drive T4 produces 187 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. Opting for the all-wheel-drive T5 boosts output to 248 hp and 258 lb-ft.

Selecting either powertrain in the Momentum configuration equips the XC40 with features such as 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, a power liftgate, keyless ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power-adjustable driver's seat, driver-seat memory functions, and cloth and faux-leather upholstery.

Also included are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality and an eight-speaker audio system. Standard safety features include lane departure warning and mitigation and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

There are two primary option packages for the Momentum: Convenience and Premium. Go with the Convenience package to get features such as dual-zone climate control and an adjustable cargo load floor. The Premium package adds a hands-free liftgate, keyless entry, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, a wireless charging pad, and a blind-spot monitor.

The R-Design trim includes both of the above packages, plus larger wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery with faux-suede inserts, and a navigation system. The luxe Inscription starts with the Momentum plus Convenience and Premium packages. From there, it adds unique wheels, leather upholstery, wood trim, and some of the R-Design's luxury features.

Other options to be on the lookout for include the Advanced package (more safety features, including adaptive cruise control) and the Momentum-only Multimedia package (adds navigation and a 13-speaker Harman Kardon audio system).

5 out of 5 stars, All around greatness (former GTI owner)
Tom E,
T5 R-Design 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)

We’ve owned our fair share of cars (Jeep Grand Cherokee, VW GTI and Sportwagen, BMW 3 series and more) but this one takes the cake. Our Jeep was 11 yrs old and it was time to replace it. We liked the XC90, but felt a little guilty about it since we live in the city and didn’t really need all that space 99% of the time. If we did, it would be for a long road trip and then we wouldn’t want that mileage on our car anyway. The XC60 was nice, but we really clicked with the XC40 because unlike other companies, the XC40 doesn’t feel any less nice than the 60, just more compact. It doesn’t have as many features, but it wasn’t anything we needed. Driving - It drives more like a GTI (very sporty) but a lot less bumpy. Roads in Brooklyn can be really beat up. Initially when we saw a pothole, we’d cringe waiting for the bump to jostle us (as it did in the GTI) but it feels somehow very smooth and still stiff and connected to the road. We got the Polestar too and it just adds a little more sportiness without sacrifice and with the additional torque in the mid-range. We really love it, more so than the 3 series even, and my wife and I are now constantly arguing who’s turn it is to drive. Safety - All cars are not created equal and the safety in this car is incredible. You have to realize that Volvo prioritizes safety beyond requirements and other manufacturers, and if you research it you’ll see that they do not skimp on anything. In government crash testing, the front passenger is not treated to the same scrutiny as the driver, but Volvo ensures it is as safe as can be. City safety is also incredible and with bikers, pedestrians, cabs, etc. it really gives us a piece of mind. Technology - Volvo uses a tablet-like setup. I do wish it had a few more physical buttons for the climate control. However, despite the learning curve, we found the infotainment to be relatively easy to use after a few days. After that initial learning curve, you realize that you have an ability to really customize a lot and we really like it. I rated it 4 stars because of that initial learning curve, but it’s not far off from being great. Features - First thing you notice is that Volvo put thought into everything from the materials, to storage and the designs. Feels like a much more expensive car. The panoramic moonroof, the materials, seat cushion extensions, 8 way front seats (both!) and lighting options are just scratching the surface. I also love that with the two keys we use, the car knows when it’s me or my wife and remembers our preferences for the seat, mirrors, and more. Comfort - The front seats are great and the seat cushion extension is great for my 6’ 2” frame. The backseat is good, but it is a small car and that’s probably where I find it a little lacking as it is a fixed seat and a little short for someone 6’2” (then again, I’m rarely in the back). I really wish you could move or recline the seat. Not a deal breaker, but would be nice. The look - We love the R-design look for its sporty yet elegant look. The 19” wheels look fantastic and the gray with blue tinge exterior (new color) against the black top make it eye-catching against the boring crowd. People always stare at it and the first time we parked it after the dealership someone made a comment about it being a beautiful car. It’s definitely a head turner. On the inside, I do wish we could opt for lighter cabin materials, which you cannot do in the R-design, but we overlook it because of the huge moonroof, great seats and plenty of light in the spacious cabin. Overall - We’d highly recommend this car if you’re looking for something practical and sporty with great features, storage and the right amount of luxury. The price can tick up quickly, but nothing else checks almost all the boxes in such a wonderful package that gets you excited to drive it every time while knowing you’re safe. We’re very happy.

5 out of 5 stars, Excellent SUV for the price and safety
Grayhawk,
T5 Inscription 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)

We purchased our 2019 Volvo XC40 through the overseas delivery program that Volvo offers. A fantastic program you should explore but that is not part of this review. We drove the car 3000 miles in Sweden and Norway during our trip and are now waiting for the car to be delivered to our dealer in Colorado. During those 3000 miles, the car functioned perfectly. All systems no problems. The car is reasonably quiet. Very responsive. Interior appointments are luxury level in my view since I am moving up from a Subaru Forester 2014, and the little touches to details are excellent. The bag hug on the glove box, the many little cubbies, the drawer under the driver's seat, the trash basket in the center armrest is the best. Storage behind the back seat is smaller than in the Subaru but very adequate. The way the area is configured in our model is perfect. There are several configuration options and you need to look at Volvo's site to check it out. You will love it. We got over 30 miles to the gallon (US) of gas and that was fine for me. Seats are very comfortable both front and back. The computer is similar to the one in Tesla in terms of the screen and a computer like operation style. Once I adjusted I started to get more comfortable with it. The safety features are numerous and I still need to learn more but the parking assist, the highway driving assistant, and the 360-degree camera are super. We are very pleased with the car and it is certainly a major upgrade from our Subaru which we also enjoyed.

5 out of 5 stars, After 7 months
Older dude,
T5 Momentum 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)

Extremely powerful performance from engine and transmission. Reasonable handling. Excellent ride for it size. Seats are comfortable for a 2 hour trip, we had no opportunity to take on longer jaunts. Great mileage, but with premium gas. Those who complain about fuel efficiency should realize that there is no 87 octane gasoline in Europe and although computers will let engine to work with low quality gas, it will not be efficient not as powerful as with recommended gas. The less developed point is outward visibility. Somehow car feel full of blind spots.

3 out of 5 stars, Great Car, But Could Be Better
Harley512,
T5 Inscription 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)

I am happy with the XC40 is purchased a month ago, but there are a couple of things I dislike. As background, I traded in a five year old XC60. I was looking for something with all the safety features and tech, a little smaller, with better gas mileage, and the XC40 fit the bill. The car is zippy and I recently got 27 mpg in the city. The touchscreen interface is easy to learn, and has some cute features available. The drive is smooth overall. The automatic breaking when you back up in crowded parking lots really works well (ha!) and I've always loved the parking assist sensors, rain sensors, BLIS, etc. on the Volvos. The front is small, but the center console, dashboard and steering wheel are positioned for room to stretch a little bit, which is nice. One of the things I dislike about XC40 is the blind spots in the rear of the vehicle. The third pillar is too wide and it's unsettling not being able to see cars approaching, even with the BLIS engaged and mirrors set correctly. Although there are other car brands/ models that have blind spots like this, it is surprising Volvo allowed that design to pass. I am guessing it's for strong frame support, but my XC60 had virtually no blind spots so it's a real adjustment. For some reason, I didn't notice them during the test drive, otherwise I might have rethought my purchase. Additionally, despite the nifty front seat driver adjustments available, it's really hard to get comfortable in the car for more than an hour's drive. The rear seats are adequate in size for most humans, but even my kids complain about their backs hurting after awhile. Overall, a nice vehicle for city driving, but not for long commutes or trips.

Volvo XC40 vs. the competition

Volvo XC40 vs. Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 compact SUV is the XC40's larger, more expensive sibling. While the XC40 is fine for two people, any more and your backseat passengers might start feeling slightly cramped. The XC60's interior is also considerably nicer, which goes a long way in justifying its higher price tag.

Compare Volvo XC40 & Volvo XC60 features

Volvo XC40 vs. BMW X1

One of the most appealing options in the subcompact-crossover segment is the BMW X1. The BMW makes the best of its compact dimensions and offers more rear-seat and cargo room than others in the class. We vastly prefer the X1's infotainment controller to the Volvo's distracting touchscreen, but we don't like that you have to pay a yearly fee for Apple CarPlay on the BMW.

Compare Volvo XC40 & BMW X1 features

Volvo XC40 vs. Lexus UX 200

The Lexus UX 200 is one of the newest subcompacts, but it's outclassed by many rivals. Two major standout qualities are its expressive styling and well-crafted interior. However, its engine doesn't make much power, and the touchpad infotainment interface is infuriating to use. Cargo space is also on the small side.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Volvo XC40?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
