The 2018 Volvo XC40 Is Extremely Elegant And A Little Annoying The 2018 Volvo XC40 Is Extremely Elegant And A Little Annoying

The 2018 Volvo XC40 looks cool as a cucumber in the back of a fridge, inside and out. But after putting about 800 miles on one and living with it for a week, I have to say I found this car frustrating in a lot of little ways.

This Is Why Care By Volvo Has Been Such A Mess This Is Why Care By Volvo Has Been Such A Mess

When we last checked in with Care by Volvo, it was a mess. Members of the much-anticipated Volvo subscription service—which for $600 includes a car, insurance and basic maintenance—reported cars that went undelivered, silence from customer service and one blown deadline after another. But now we know it was because…

Care By Volvo Is Off To A Messy Start Care By Volvo Is Off To A Messy Start

The Care by Volvo subscription service sounded like a hell of a deal. Pay $600 a month and you’d get not only a brand-new Volvo XC40, but everything from insurance to basic maintenance thrown in with it. No down payments, no extra fees. And it should be a deal—but multiple would-be subscribers say their promised cars…

Volvo Is Making An Awesome Six-Speed Manual XC40 And It's Bumming Me The Hell Out Volvo Is Making An Awesome Six-Speed Manual XC40 And It's Bumming Me The Hell Out

Cool Audi RS wagons. A Citroën Cactus. Honda S660s. What do these cars all have in common? They are far too good for us heathens in the U.S. of A and are not sold here until they are 25 years old. Soon to join them as another item we can’t have is a particular variant of the Volvo XC40 compact crossover.

Volvo’s all-new Compact Modular Architecture can be seen today in its new compact crossover, the XC40. Back in 2016, the company said that the versatile platform would support a battery-powered electric vehicle, which is shaping up to be a production version of the 40.2 Concept.

For the longest time, a small SUV has been a fashion statement. “You’re not worthless,” they shouted. “You’ve amounted to something.” “Your parents aren’t ashamed of you.” That’s because you moved to the suburbs, got a house, and the small SUV. The 2018 Volvo XC40 seems to be the first one made for the rest of your…

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Volvo XC40? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Volvo XC40?

Volvo began its renaissance a few years ago, first with the big XC90 SUV and the big S90 sedan. They were followed by the midsize XC60, but the true test of the comeback would be the smaller 2018 Volvo XC40 crossover. But I have seen this entry-level luxury promised land, and it has been good.

We saw some cool stuff at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. A turbocharged Mazda6. The new Corvette ZR1. The brand-new Volvo XC40. All in all, it was a pretty decent show. You should go, if you’re in town.

Out of everything that I saw at this year’s 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, my favorite car was actually an SUV. I know, I’m surprised, too. But it was the 2019 Volvo XC40, a car you should really be paying attention to if you like very cleverly designed interiors filled with secret nooks and crannies for all your stuff.

Volvo's Car Subscription Program Starts At $600 And Seems To Cover Pretty Much Everything Volvo's Car Subscription Program Starts At $600 And Seems To Cover Pretty Much Everything

More and more carmakers are turning to subscription services as an alternative way to get people into their cars. Cadillac has a program, as does Ford. And now Volvo does, too: Care by Volvo. And after reading through the official description, I’m really struggling to find a downside to it.

I like when production cars look close to their concepts, and the new 2018 Volvo XC40 didn’t change much from the clean and modern design we saw last year. Official pics and specs of the new crossover dropped this morning, and Volvo’s trying some new and different things with the ownership model.

Back in July, the German website for Volvo slipped and accidentally released a partial image of the 2018 Volvo XC40. Today, thanks to another leak, we now have a full look at the entire ride. It’s nice, and it stuck incredibly close to the concept.

2018 Volvo XC40: This Is Some Of It

An apparent slip-up by the German Volvo Cars website led to a peak of the 2018 Volvo XC40. The photo was taken down quickly, according to Autocar, which suggests it was almost certainly an official Volvo photo.

These Are The Guts That Are Going To Underpin The New Volvos For The Masses These Are The Guts That Are Going To Underpin The New Volvos For The Masses

Volvo’s XC90 and S90 heralded the rebirth of Volvo, but those big-ticket cars won’t save the company. What Volvo needs is a big volume, mass-market seller to bring its Swedish revolution to the Youths and the masses. If you’re a Youth or a Mass, these are the guts of underneath your next Swedish runabout.

Today, Volvo announced their new modular small-car architecture with the Concept 40.1 and Concept 40.2, respectively previewing the XC40 crossover and S40 production cars. The designs are very clean and lovely, worthy of a parking spot within a Scandinavian furniture store.
