The XC40 is charming, exciting, and youthful - and has ranked highly in its class since its release. The thoughtfully-designed interior has all you want and need, plus a few touches that put it over the top. Great for navigating the roads of Chicago, and for adventuring when it's time to get away. 


Open the front door to the 2021 XC40 and you'll immediately be greeted by the 12.3-inch digital information display. It controls the audio, climate, navigation, and most other controls you'd find on a traditional dashboard. It contains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, along with built-in Wi-Fi and an abundance of USB ports.


New features that are now part of the 2021 base trim include leather upholstery, power-folding and self-dimming side mirrors, and LED headlights with automatic high beams and active bending lights. Regarding safety features, active blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors are also included. 


Functionality is key in all vehicles, but especially the luxury variety. A beautiful vehicle is great, but one that's beautiful and works with your needs is even better. There are a number of integrated storage features spattered throughout the cabin, including a hook that flips up from the glove compartment, meant to hold carry-out bags. There's also a removable garbage bin in the center console and a divider that helps organize the cargo area. 


A second very convenient feature is app-based car sharing. It gives you a way to share your vehicle with friends and family members - without handing over the physical keys. Use the Volvo On Call app to approve use and time frame, and send the location of your vehicle. Their smartphone can then be used to unlock and start your XC40. Once again, it's all in the details. 


The two driving options are the 184-hp T4 engine with front-wheel drive and the 248-hp T5 with all-wheel drive. The T5 boasts a bit more power and is beneficial for those who face winter road conditions. Both engines handle turns and gear changes smoothly and make for a quiet, relaxing ride. The XC40 is not only easy to maneuver,  but exciting to drive. 


The all-new XC40 Recharge will arrive in 2021, as well. It's the all-electric version of the XC40 that's outfitted with dual electric motors that produce over 200 miles of range. It has all-wheel drive and 402 horsepower, proving itself as an extremely powerful electric vehicle.
