When you get behind the wheel of a compact vehicle, you look for qualities that help it to exceed your expectations. You look at the performance capabilities it has, all of the technology that comes packed inside, and the space you have to operate the vehicle comfortably.

Meet the Volvo XC40, a vehicle that is taking small and compact to the next level with more power and capabilities than ever before. At LaFontaine Volvo of Farmington Hills, we are here to provide you with a review of this vehicle to see if it fits your driving needs in Detroit, West Bloomfield, and Northville, MI.

Volvo XC40: Engine

Your car's performance is based on the power you get from the engine. Don't let this small vehicle fool you; it packs quite a punch under the hood.

The Volvo XC40 has a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that gets 187 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. It also gets an EPA-estimated 23 city/32 highway MPG and has a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.1

This vehicle gives you plenty of power and performance, so you can still get a lot of things done in this luxury vehicle.

Volvo XC40: Technology

Technology is becoming more important to drivers because it allows them to stay connected and customize their ride to their preferences. The Volvo XC40 takes this to a new level with innovative connections and the ability to easily access your settings.

The Volvo XC40 comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capabilities that unlock new possibilities in your ability to access your favorite entertainment, streaming, and contacts.

The Volvo On Call app allows you to own your space within the vehicle. You can preheat, pre-cool, and set up the vehicle to your standards before you get in with a tap of the app. You can even share this with other drivers to allow for family and friends who use your vehicle to have their own settings and preferences available when they need it through the app.

Finally, if you want to get even more entertainment out of the drive, take advantage of the Harman Kardon premium sound system that gives you a concert-like experience from the driver's seat.

Volvo XC40: Interior Dimensions

In a compact vehicle like the Volvo XC40, space can seem like a limitation. Once you get inside, however, you will see that is not the case.

The Volvo XC40 provides 39 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom to front passengers. Rear passengers get 39.1 inches of headroom and 36.1 inches of legroom.

This gives you the space needed to ride in comfort and relax as you make your travels while enjoying all of the other amenities this vehicle has to offer.
