The newest in Volvo’s lineup of crossovers, the 2019 Volvo XC40 is a compact SUV that fits underneath the XC60 and the flagship XC90 utilities in the Volvo line. The very well-done XC series has been selling well for Volvo and now the Swedish automaker has set its sights on the fast-growing luxury compact segment. Their aim is dead on, we note, as the 2019 Volvo XC40 is one of the best compact crossovers we’ve seen.
Capturing the popular good looks of the other XC models, the Volvo XC40 re-proportions the excellent lines of its larger crossover siblings into a smaller package. A sweeping rear pillar, forward-moving lines, and robust, but sophisticated edges make the Volvo XC40 a beautiful vehicle both parked at the curb and in motion.
