The 2018 Volvo XC40 has been launched in India priced at Rs. 39.90 lakhs (ex-showroom, pan-India). Mind you this is the introductory price. Based on the company’s Compact Modular Architecture, the XC40 is the most affordable Volvo SUV you can get your hands on in India. The compact luxury SUV rivals the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Mercedes GLA.

In terms of looks, the 2018 XC40 is a typical Volvo to look at all thanks to the signature grille, Thor’s Hammer-inspired LED headlights with LED DRLs and the D-shaped LED tail-lights. The XC40 looks like a shrunken XC90. The body cladding and the 18-inch alloy wheels help complete the SUV look.

Coming to the cabin of the vehicle, it is similar to the larger Volvo SUVs and equipment levels too are impressive. The Swedish carmaker has literally crammed the car with a whole lot of features. There is a 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel, 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster, 9-inch tablet like Sensus touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, 13-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, 2-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, powered tailgate, powered driver’s seat, wireless charging, heated front and rear seats and hands-free parking assist.

Powering the 2018 Volvo XC40 is a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 187 HP of power at 4000 RPM and 400 Nm of torque at 1750-2500 RPM. The oil-burner comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with a Haldex AWD system. Volvo claims a 0-100 km/hr time of 7.9 seconds.
