Speaking of the model`s availability in Australia and the need of having it there, Nick Connor, CEO at Volvo Australia, has also declared:

“SUVs continue to be very popular with Australian car buyers, and the compact SUV segment is also growing rapidly. In such a competitive market you need to stand out from the crowd. We are confident that with its very distinctive look and competitive pricing the XC40 will make an immediate impact with buyers who are looking for something very different from the cookie-cutter models in the compact luxury SUV segment today.”

In Australia, the all-new 2018 Volvo XC40 will compete against the likes of the new Audi Q2, BMW X1/X2, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Infiniti QX30 and the updated Jaguar E-Pace, and will feature two variants, the T5 and D4, each one coming with the Momentum and R-Design trims.

Visually, the new 2018 Volvo XC40 measures 4,425mm long, 1,863mm wide and 1,658mm tall, standing on the company`s new CMA platform (Compact Modular Architecture), also underpinning other small models from Volvo.

The model boasts the latest equipment and technology, like touch-screen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, adding as well the company`s semi-autonomous Pilot Assist cruise, Clean Zone dual-zone climate control, and much, much more.

Under the hood, all T5 variants feature a 2.0-liter turbo-petrol flat-four engine with 185 kW and 350 Nm of torque, while the D4s come with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel with 140 kW and 400 Nm of torque. All variants are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive system.
