Incredible aesthetic and technical success
The concept had announced beautiful things, now confirmed by this 2019 Volvo XC40. By adopting the codes of its older sibling the2018 XC60, it fits as a smaller version and more suitable for urban use. The lines remain refined and sober.
In terms of technology, Volvo once again offers a model equipped with the best equipment.

This 2019 Volvo XC40 benefited from an incredible background work. It has been designed to be as functional as possible.

- The installation of a basket in the central armrest
- No speakers in the doors to save space and provide extra storage space
- Rear shelf that can slip into a compartment when removed
- The ability to recharge your phone by induction
This Volvo XC40 is surely the best-designed vehicle for the users that the automotive industry has ever known.

Research was also carried out on materials. The Swedish manufacturer wanted to present a new model, this requires the use of different materials and an exemplary finish. This quality can be found on all the latest models presented by the brand.
Exterior of the 2019 XC40
Outside, we find the curves on the 40.1 concept. Like all the latest models released by Volvo, this 2019 XC40 will be equipped with lights in the form of "hammer Thor". Splendid Swedish creation, they come to enhance a car with magnificent curves.
Note also that this 2019 XC40 will be the first Volvo model combining two exterior colors. A fantasy that customers of certain versions will be able to choose.

In 2018, two versions will be available in Canada: Momentum and R-design. The others will surely follow in 2019. These future versions could even benefit from a different engine (see below).
2019 Volvo XC40 engine
The only engine on offer in Canada when the 2019 XC40 comes out next spring should be a 2.0L 4 cylinder turbocharged engine with 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It will be delivered with the all-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Volvo XC40 Hybrid Plug-in or 100% Electric
As you know, Volvo has chosen to offer only 100% electric or rechargeable vehicles by 2019/2020. The Volvo XC40 will be an integral part of this program. According to some reports, the first Volvo XC40 hybrid or 100% electric could appear in 2019, and arriving to Canada in 2020.
It will then be equipped with the T3 engine, the first 3-cylinder engine developed by Volvo, and an electric motor thus forming the T5 Twin Engine. Since the gasoline engine provides power to both front drive wheels, the rear wheels should be driven by the electric motor to offer a complete all-wheel drive system.

The price of this new Volvo XC40 starts at $39,900. This price does not include transport, taxes and preparation.
