With Volvo SUVs surging in popularity, the Swedish automaker expanded its portfolio with the 2019 release of the XC40 compact crossover. Nimble, luxurious, and fun to drive, the all-new XC40 provides everything we love about the larger Volvo SUVs, in a more maneuverable and affordable package.

Two main variants are available based on their powertrain. The XC40 T4 is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that sends 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive XC40 T5 increases power output to 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

True to Volvo form, the XC40 comes well stocked across the trim levels, with generous standard and available amenities. Here's a quick breakdown of the XC40 trim levels.

  • Momentum: Though technically the "base" trim, there's nothing basic about Momentum's feature list. Standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, a power lift-gate, automatic climate control, a power adjustable driver's seat with memory settings, and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

    Also included are advanced safety features like Volvo City Safety, Lane Keeping Aid, and Volvo On Call Communications.

  • R-Design: This performance inspired tier adds sporty aesthetic enhancements like special 19-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, cornering headlights, a black roof, black exterior trim, and shift paddles on the steering wheel. Other notable features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a hands-free lift gate, navigation, keyless entry, and leather upholstery.

  • Inscription: The luxury-inspired Inscription trim builds off the Momentum tier with a panoramic sunroof, chrome roof rails, wood interior trim, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, keyless entry, ambient interior lighting, and more.
