These versatile vehicles offer the realism of the traditional full-size SUVs while leaving a significantly smaller footprint. The Volvo XC40 is a stylish luxury crossover that is an embodiment of what crossovers should be. The vehicle showcases a high level of craftsmanship with its gorgeous design that translates very well to the outright spacious, elegant interiors.


The 2020 XC40 has a bold, sturdy design that flows very well all around the car to provide an attractive machine.

The base trims feature cloth and synthetic leather upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an 8-speaker audio system. The SUV's practical dimensions allow ample spacious interiors with gracious legroom and headroom and quite enough cargo space.


Volvo has long retained a legacy of crafting vehicles equipped with some of the most advanced safety features available in the market, and the Volvo XC40 carries on that legacy. The car earns high safety ratings and has many standard and available features to keep you safe around Mason, MI.

The Volvo XC40 comes standard with several active safety features, including; a forward collision warning that uses sensors to detect obstacles in front of the vehicle, a lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. Oncoming collision mitigation and a road departure warning are also standard on all the trim levels. An available advanced package adds adaptive cruise control, automatic adjusting LED headlights and a 360-degree surround-view camera. Other optional safety features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and reverse automatic braking.


This luxury crossover comes fitted with a user-friendly vertical nine-inch Sensus Connect touchscreen infotainment system with several available connectivity options, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Bluetooth, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The crossover is also available with a wide assortment of optional features for added convenience; these include a premium 13-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, dual-zone climate control, and wireless charging capabilities.


The XC40 is powered by a potent turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission to put out 184 horsepower. The powertrain is also available in a more powerful variant known as the T5 that produces 248 horsepower. The T5 comes with an all-wheel-drive setup as standard and goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds. The luxury subcompact has a towing capacity of 3500 pounds, which is impressive for an SUV in its class.
