Volvo XC40 in the New Orleans, LA Area

Newly released for the new model year, the Volvo XC40 slides in perfectly to the Swedish automaker's lineup, just below the popular XC60. With its smaller and more maneuverable size, it's ideally suited to city driving. And, while the exterior is diminutive in comparison, the interior provides plenty of crossover utility with spacious and comfortable seating and versatile cargo capacity. With its high-quality cabin materials, generous features list, and Volvo's inimitable Scandinavian design, it's a perfect choice for discerning New Orleans drivers seeking an affordable luxury crossover without compromise.

Volvo XC40 Powertrains

The XC40 is offered in two powertrain-based variants:

  • T4 models are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This front-wheel drive model makes 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque.

  • T5 models feature a similar engine, but with power boosted to 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is standard, providing enhanced control in inclement conditions and on slippery surfaces.


The XC40's attractive and inviting cabin was inspired by contemporary fashion and popular culture. Minimalist yet high-tech, the interior features supportive and spacious seating, intuitively arranged controls, and connected technologies that keep you in the know while on the go. With all five-seats in place, you'll find almost 21 cubic-feet of space behind the back row.  And, with the 60/40-split rear seats folded down, cargo capacity more than doubles to 47.2 cubic-feet.

Trim Levels

Features for the XC40 are streamlined to three well-equipped tiers, giving New Orleans shoppers easy access to essential features. Many amenities of the upper trim levels are available as options on supporting trims.

  • Momentum: Technically the base trim, Momentum kicks off the lineup with a wealth of standard features, including a 9-inch infotainment system, keyless ignition, a power liftgate, 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, and several advanced driver aids.

  • R-Design: Up next, R-Design models receive sporty enhancements like a sport-tuned suspension, a black roof, black exterior trim, and steering wheel paddle shifters. They also add comfort and convenience amenities like a hands-free tailgate, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, and keyless entry.

  • Inscription: Building off the Momentum trim, Inscription models take a more luxury focus, with wood trim, a panoramic sunroof, chrome roof rails, navigation, a cooled glovebox, and the R-Design's comfort and convenience features.


Though minimalist in nature, the XC40's cabin is equipped with smart technology that keeps you connected and entertained without losing focus on the road. The Sensus infotainment system responds intuitively to conversational voice commands, giving you hands-free control over applications like radio, climate controls, navigation, and more. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality conveniently integrates common smartphone apps with the 9-inch touchscreen, making it easy to access media, maps, messaging, and more. Need a charge, simply place your phone on the wireless charging pad; no cable required.

Advanced Safety Features

Life can be unpredictable, especially out on the road; and even the safest drivers are vulnerable to unanticipated hazards. Living up to Volvo's legendary reputation for safety and security, the XC40 offers several standard and available driver-assistance technologies that help you respond to the unexpected, including:

  • Volvo City Safety: Serving as an extra pair of eyes on the road, this system supplements your attentive driving by looking ahead for other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and even large animals. It warns of impending collisions and can apply automatic emergency braking if necessary.

  • Lane Keeping Aid: At speeds between 40 and 130 mph (for you Autobahn users), this system monitors for, and warns of, unintentional lane drifting. It can also provide subtle corrective steering to keep the vehicle centered in the lane.

  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS™ ) & Cross Traffic Alert: This system provides a visual cue of vehicles in the XC40's blind spot, so you know when it's safe to change lanes. When reversing out of a parking space or driveway, Cross Traffic Alert warns of vehicles approaching from the left in right so you can back out with confidence.
