Exterior:The Volvo XC40’s two-tone paint schemes feature stands out and pulls you to have a closer look.The grille is very much signature Volvo: It sports the legendary badge, along with the newer headlights also popularly known as the “Thor’s hammer”. XC40’s overall design is mostly angular with relatively smaller side glass areas. In the lower body there are stretched octagonal cut-outs that define the shape of the car.
A cozy, all-black leather interior welcomes you in the cabin.The heated steering wheel has the usual controls and knobs required to operate the vehicle functions. To add a sporty feel, there is an R-Design top stitching on the steering wheel.
Front seats are ventilated and heated. In UAE, you might never have to use the heating feature but it is there just incase.The infotainment system is a bit complexed to use but features a 10 inch screen. Ideal for navigation and shows a range of information easily. High Performance Audio system is superb and special attention has been given to the cabin’s acoustics. There are a ton of safety features in the Volvo XC40. A 360 degree camera, front collision detection, rear cross path, power child lock, inflatable curtains, all around air bags and 57 other features that require an article by itself. One of the most attractive features for me on the inside is the Panoramic Sunroof with Power Sunshade. This is a sunroof you can actually use in the UAE without burning your head. Rear seating is comfortable for two adults and can easily accommodate a third slim shady like me in there. Leave me out and bring out the arm rest with your favorite drink in the middle. Storage space is adequate for its class. Just remember its a compact SUV, that has everything you need but in smaller quantities.
