Volvo XC 40 Is a trail-blazing model

The XC40 delivers a fun loving drive with a premium interior that comes with plenty of ‘firsts’ for the Volvo brand.

Like all other Volvos in the range, this XC40’s standard safety features include Volvo’s fourth-generation City Safety crash-prevention technology, which can prevent crashes at speeds up to 60km/h; features that stop the car from running off the road and help the SUV avoid a head-on collision; as well as lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist.


Volvo’s latest in car equipment includes its semi-autonomous Pilot Assist system, which can steer, accelerate and brake the vehicle in certain settings; a 360-degree camera to help drivers maneuver in and out of tight parking spaces; as well as a system the guides the vehicle into a parking spot.

Some of the “firsts” for the new Volvo XC40

  • First Volvo with integrated inductive charging for mobile phones
  • First Volvo with upgraded City Safety that prevents crashes at speeds up to 60 kph (up from 50 kph in 90- and 60 series models)
  • First modern Volvo with no speakers in the front doors, leaving room for more storage
  • First premium compact SUV in Volvo’s 90 years of production
  • First model to use compact module architecture (CMA) co-developed with Geely
