The T5 and D4 engines with AWD all-wheel drive are true high-performance units. Still, the fuel economy performs at an impressive 39.8 and 56.5 mpg respectively.
Fit 479 litres to the top of the rear backrests. Even more impressively, the folding floor can be adapted to whatever you are carrying.
4.4 m long and 1.8 m wide, the XC40 is built for city life with a compact exterior. Thanks to smart design and a height of 1.6 meters, the interior is very spacious.

The race to the horizon
The fascinating background and history of the Volvo Ocean Race have turned it into one of the best-known and toughest endurance races in the sporting calendar. For four and a half decades, participants have challenging themselves and each other as they sail its course. In this article, we will trace the race back to its beginning - and beyond, looking at the developments that shaped modern sea travel and made it possible in the first place. We trace the history of the race all the way back to the opening of the Panama and Suez canals, and then how - decades later - Robin Knox-Johnson became the first man to sail single-handedly round the planet. We then describe the foundation of the race in the 70s, and the developments that turned it into the event we know today - with its cutting-edge boats, teams of world champion sailors and non-stop coverage.
The luxury of time
It takes less than two hours to fly from San Francisco to Los Angeles, but instead we’re driving between these two cities in the Volvo XC90, the perfect car for indulging in the luxury of the journey.
Stockholm’s underground art movement
The underground metro system in Sweden’s capital, Stockholm, is more than just a means of transport – its spectacular art installations turn it into the longest art gallery in the world.
