New Volvo XC40 prices revealed, with Volvo promising that the XC40 is one of the best value compact SUVs on sale 

The Volvo XC40 is Volvo’s first compact SUV, and this is also the first time Volvo has had three SUVs available in range at any given time. The XC40 is also the first Volvo to be built on the Swedish brand’s new Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) and it’ll be the first Volvo to be powered by their all-new three-cylinder engine.

Volvo has pledged that the XC40 will be hip, funky and clever with ingenious design touches such as storage spaces in the doors, under the seats and in the cargo area. There’s also cool materials and the latest technology, such as Volvo’s renowned Sensus infotainment system, which is also found in its XC60 and XC90 brothers.

Volvo’s semi-autonomous driver technology will be available on some models, in addition to the latest incarnation of City Safety, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, Cross Traffic Alert with auto brake and a 360° Camera that makes parking a doddle.

At launch, two engine choices will be available: The petrol-powered T5 delivers 185 kW and 350Nm of torque. The diesel powered D4 serves up a very healthy 140kW and 400Nm of torque.

Two trim levels will be offered in Australia, the base Momentum and the sporty R-Design. Pricing is as follows:

Momentum R-Design
XC40 T5 $47,990 XC40 T5 $54,990
XC40 D4 $50,990 XC40 D4 $57,990
