2020 Volvo XC40 Momentum
The Volvo XC40 is a new compact SUV from the Volvo. Now into its second year, leather seating has been made optional and power folding rear seats are no longer available.
The Volvo XC40 comes in three different trims for its launch this year. Each is powered by a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine displacing 2.0L, powering all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. With 248 horsepower on tap, the compact SUV is quite quick in a straight line, though it should still return over 30 mpg on the highway.
The most basic XC40 trim is dubbed the Momentum trim. Since the Volvo XC40 is considered a luxury crossover, amenities are substantial and include items such as a 12.3-inch display, a power operated liftgate, smartphone integration, a park assist camera, LED headlights, SiriusXM satellite radio, a powered driver's seat with a memory function, 18-inch wheels and tinted windows.
The next step up is the R-Design model. It offers a slightly more aggressive exterior as well as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a navigation system, keyless entry with a hands free tailgate, 19-inch wheels, fog lights, a unique grille and various R-Design bits throughout the interior. XC40 subscribers can subscribe to the R-Design model for an additional $100.
The top-of-the-line model for 2020 is the Inscription model. The Inscription has a luxuriously appointed interior which includes details such as driftwood Deco trim and a crystal gear knob. The Inscription model also comes standard with a panoramic roof, nicer seats and a leather clad interior.
