Award Winning New XC40
Now Available To Test Drive Here At Strathmore
What Car?’s overall 2018 Car of the Year, the new Volvo XC40 premium compact SUV, is now available for test drives at Strathmore.
The car, which was launched by Strathmore on 22 February, breaks new ground for Volvo as its first ever compact SUV.
Every XC40 is exceptionally well equipped. Even the entry-level Momentum version has a nine-inch touch screen control system, satellite navigation, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control with a sophisticated interior air-quality system, and 18-inch alloy wheels – all as standard.
The XC40 comes with lots of exciting technology, too. This includes the Volvo On Call app, which allows you to control various car functions from your smartphone or smartwatch, while the Sensus nine-inch touch screen works in tandem with the sophisticated voice-activated control system.
Three petrol engines – the 156 hp T3, 190 hp T4 and 247 hp T5 – are available, along with two diesels – the 150 hp D3 and 190 hp D4. Front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and a choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearboxes allows you to choose the precise car to suit your individual needs.
The What Car? judges said: “The XC40 mixes style, space and comfort with cutting-edge safety and relative affordability so ably that we named it our 2018 What Car? Car of the Year. Amid a year of great cars, it stands out as the most impressive by far.”
Norman Leishman said: “The stunning new XC40 competes in a new sector of the market for Volvo and is already attracting new people into our showroom. We welcome all local drivers to come in to experience the award-winning car for themselves.”
