The new Volvo XC40 T4 has arrived and continues Volvo’s competitive SUV line-up. As the smallest SUV Volvo offer, it faces rivals from Audi with their Q3 and BMW’s X1. Clearly then, there is no shortage of competition, however the 2019 XC40 T4 has been proven to be a high-performer.

The T4 engine variant is offered in every XC40 trim: Momentum, R-Design and Inscription, as well as their respective ‘Pro’ model lines. Prices start from £32,770 in Momentum spec, climbing to £38,820 in Inscription Pro guise.

All models come with an impressive standard specification, including LED headlights, cruise control, heated door mirrors, a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display, and a nine-inch touchscreen sat-nav.

The new T4 features the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit found throughout the Volvo line-up. Here it produces 187bhp and 300Nm, matching it closely to the BMW X1 sDrive20i. The XC40 T4 is only available in four-wheel drive, whereas the X1 is available in both front and four-wheel drive.

In terms of performance, the T4 will accelerate from 0-62 in 8.5 seconds, making it competitive enough against BMW’s X1. The eight-speed automatic gearbox is reported to be slicker than its competitors as well, with Auto Express stating, “Shifts are slick and, in contrast to Audi’s jerky dual-clutch box, remains obedient during low-speed manoeuvring”. Volvo quotes a respectable 40.4mpg for the 2.0 petrol engine; however this does fall short of the X1 and Q3.

The cabin is said to be a wonderful place to sit. The unique portrait oriented touchscreen and variety of colour options make for a more lively experience than that of its predecessors, although it is still heavily inspired by the larger XC60 and XC90.
