Unveiled at the LA Autoshow, Cnet says The XC40 looks about on par with a Range Rover Evoque or the Porsche Macan, with seating for five plus cargo space. And following Volvo’s market position, its new small SUV shows off premium cabin materials and technologies.
The front view makes the XC40 look almost indistinguishable from its bigger brothers, especially at night when the “Hammer of Thor” headlights shine in their unique shape. The side includes the same lower indent as the XC60, but there the similarities end.
The rear pillar of the XC40 is much wider than on Volvo’s other SUVs, and two-tone paint, shown in initial photos, make it stand apart. The taillight configuration, however, reinforces the Volvo identity.
