Volvo XC40 presented: The first compact Volvo crossover
Some see the new car as a replacement for V40 Cross Country hatch, but it's more correct to call the XC40 the new model, because it's a crossover (can be FWD or AWD), not a hatchback.

**Exterior**
Since all the Volvo's use the same design language, the XC40 looks like a smaller Volvo XC90. Simple, sharp lines, signature headlights, traditional grille.

![volvo2.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmWeQoAxGyB6TMbVHZZXrHKrn6xGA4DbbvxZtiqG7QNiYB/volvo2.jpg)

**Specs**
Platform: CMA
Dimensions (LxWxH): 4425x1863x1652 mm
Engines: 1.5 petrol/diesel, 2.0 petrol/diesel. Hybrid variant will be available in the future.
Gearbox: manual/automatic

**Interior**
On the inside, the car resembles its "big brother" - XC60. There is a 9-inch touch screen in the middle and 12,3-inch digital panel with dials behind the wheel. There is a lot of room for small things - for example, the niche below the climat control block sized to fit your smarthone and niches in the doors.

Nice but I'm thinking that Volvo's new design language looks better on the XC60 and XC90. When they shrink it to compact crossover size it doesn't have the same visual impact at least in the photos I'm seeing so far. More cute and less classy.

Perhaps a live version will change my mind. I saw the latest XC60 for the first time in Sweden recently and it was quite nice.

I think that overall the car looks pretty good, except for the rear doors' window line - that looks horrible.

I love the new design from Volvo ! Only the seperation line of the 2 colors is not that nice. One color paintwork would be better in my opinion. Price would also be interesting. Hopefully affordable :-)
