2019 Volvo XC40 Specs Reviews
2019 Volvo XC40 Overview
XC40 has a corner display that shares attitude with off-road vehicles are more rugged. Prominent logo and wide grille team with large wheel flanges and color contrast roofs are available to give the impression that XC40 has some true off-road skills. The 8.3-inch ground wipe on its back claims a bit, but Volvo has not confirmed its hardware details along the weather.
The XC40 cabin focuses on the stylish 9-inch touch screen featuring the Volvo Sensor infotainment interface as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Bluetooth with streaming audio will become standard, and wireless Q-compatible battery charging will be available. The infotainment system will also support application connectivity for Pandora and Yelp, among others, as well as emergency services and location sharing.
The XC40 dimension will place it in a compact SUV class, even though the final specification has not been released yet. Volvo says the interior will have flexible back seats and in-car storage space exclusively for cell phones, water bottles and shopping bags.
When launching the XC40 will draw power from inline turbo-4 and all-wheel drive. Volvo will build turbodiesel and inline-3 XC40s, despite plans for the version in the U.S. has not been confirmed. Finally XC40 tends to add hybrid models and plug-in power for the U.S.
On the secure front, 2019 XC40 will include forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking. Surround-view cameras will be available, as are the semi-autonomous driving aids of Volvo.
The most interesting feature, though, might be the Volvo subscription model will offer under the banner Care by Volvo. Buyers can choose to pay $ 36,195 for a turbocharged base, XC40 Momentum all-wheel drive, or they can subscribe to use the car and to exchange it immediately after each year. The subscription fee will include maintenance and service fees, insurance, and wear and tear.
The front-drive turbo-4 model for $ 34,195 comes in the summer of 2018.
Volvo said it will provide more details on its pricing plans and bookings later this year
