The Volvo XC40 Just Got A Little Better But Not By A Large Margin
Auto News

The 2019 Volvo XC40 is receiving a mid-lifecycle upgrade with new powertrain options and features and increased standard specification levels. The 1.5-litre three-cylinder T3 petrol engine benefits from an increase in power, 156bhp to 163bhp. It is also now available for the first time with the option of an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder T4 petrol engine is now available with two-wheel drive, to complement the existing all-wheel-drive version. The T4 FWD is priced £1,400 below the equivalent AWD version.

Equipment changes include the addition of auto-folding door mirrors, a 12v power outlet in the luggage compartment, a locking glovebox and a load protection net. A new Winter Plus pack option adds a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats to the contents of the established Winter pack (heated front seats, a heated windscreen, headlight cleaning system and heated washer nozzles).

The 2019 Volvo XC40 range will soon expand further with the introduction of a T5 Twin Engine petrol-electric plug-in hybrid variant, UK deliveries of which will start in early 2020.

The XC40 will also get an upgraded Blind Spot Information System option with a new Steer Assist function. This automatically applies corrective steering to return the XC40 to its lane to help avoid the risk of collision with another vehicle in the driver’s blind spot.

Three new exterior paint finishes are available to order: Thunder Grey, Glacier Silver and Pebble Grey.

The updated 2019 Volvo XC40 is available to order now, with on-the-road prices from £28,965.
