Ahead of its anticipated launch in July 2018, fresh details have emerged that hint at all that can be expected from the upcoming XC40. Unlike its older siblings like the XC90 and XC60 which are based on the Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, the XC40 is based on Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform. However, we expect to see a few features being borrowed from the XC60 and the XC90.


At the time of launch, the XC40 is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine that generates 187bhp of power and 400Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Like its older siblings, the Volvo XC40 will be offered with ABS with EBD, ESC, eight airbags, hill assist, parking assist and descent control. Additionally, the vehicle will also be offered with adaptive cruise control, oncoming lane mitigation, run-off-road mitigation and blind spot information.


The upcoming Volvo XC40 will be the smallest and the most affordable XC model offered by the Swedish car manufacturer’s lineup. The SUV gets its family face with an upright grille that resembles the XC60. The five-seater SUV gets Thor-Hammer LED headlamps and the L-shaped LED tail lamps. The SUV will be offered with dual-tone colours options and will sit on 19-inch alloy wheels.


The Volvo XC40 will be offered with three-spoke multi-functional steering wheel, nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and premium leather upholstery. Additionally, the SUV will come with heated front and rear seats and a 750W 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.
