Nick Connor, Managing Director at Volvo Car Australia, said: “SUVs continue to be very popular with Australian car buyers, and the compact SUV segment is also growing rapidly. In such a competitive market you need to stand out from the crowd.” We are confident that with its very distinctive look and competitive pricing the XC40 will make an immediate impact with buyers who are looking for something very different from the cookie-cutter models in the compact luxury SUV segment today.”

“The XC40 exterior has an athletic sculpture with a subtle, timeless quality. The interior is a masterful composition of well-resolved architecture, beautiful materials and the very latest technology. These technologies will make the XC40 one of the best equipped compact luxury SUV’s on the Australian market.”

“There is also lots of storage space in the doors, underneath the front seats, and in the cargo compartment.”

“XC40 is a proper SUV and is the perfect car for an active Australian lifestyle. It perfectly complements our already award-winning SUV line-up.”
