No more wires

The Volvo XC40 has a storage space on the tunnel console where a mobile phone can be stored and wirelessly charged, reducing clutter and making it easy to reach. The phone rests at just the right angle for you to pick it up easily, or glance at it if you need to.​

A better view

Parking on busy city streets is easy in the Volvo XC40, especially with the availability of a 360° camera. This clever feature gives you a detailed ‘birds-eye’ view of your car, so you can see where it is in relation to other vehicles and objects.

Smart technology

Technology has a human feel in the Volvo XC40. From the easy-to-use centre touch screen to the high-resolution driver display and voice control that understands normal speech, it’s there to make things less complicated. It’s as natural as using your phone.

A place for everything

The Volvo XC40 has smart storage features that make life less complicated, including door bins large enough for laptops and handbags, and an ingenious foldout takeaway hook. There’s even a bin under the centre armrest that will hold a full-size tissue box.

An extra pair of eyes

City Safety – standard for every Volvo XC40 – is like having a co-pilot to look out for you. It identifies other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and large animals ahead, warning you if a collision is imminent. If you don’t react in time then it will brake automatically to help avoid or mitigate a collision.

The command centre

With a raised seating position and uncluttered cabin design, the Volvo XC40 elevates you above the everyday and puts you in control. Beautiful details and carefully selected materials are the mark of true Swedish craftsmanship.

Stand tall

High ground clearance gives the Volvo XC40 a powerful stance and excellent visibility. Large wheels and tyres cope effortlessly with any road. This is the SUV that allows you to rise above it all.

Wired for sound

Enjoy music in the Volvo XC40 with features including a unique air-ventilated woofer that delivers precise, powerful sound. And for an even more immersive experience, choose the optional Harman Kardon Premium Sound audio system – the result of a collaboration with one of the world’s leading audio brands.
