Report: Volvo XC40 Compact CUV to Debut Later This Year

  Report: Volvo XC40 Compact CUV to Debut Later This Year <p>The first Volvo to ride on the new CMA platform</p>The XC40 occupies the same segment as the popular BMW X1 and Audi Q3. Visually, it should share much of the same handsome bodylines as the Volvo XC90 SUV and S90 sedan as previewed by the Volvo 40.1 concept (pictured). Inside, expect a premium environment evocative of the Swedish heritage.

Volvo has a history of making high-performance station wagons, and this one is the fastest yet. In fact, it’s the third-quickest wagon Motor Trend has ever tested, thanks to all-wheel drive and a 345-hp turbocharged straight-six: 0-60 happens in just 5.0 seconds.

Our spy photographers recently spotted the Volvo XC 40 out testing before its anticipated debut later this year. Despite the heavily camouflaged exterior, the photographers hit the jackpot by catching the XC 40 ’s interior largely uncovered .

The Toyota Tundra and Sequoia may be getting a nip-tuck for 2018, if these spied photos taken near the company’s California offices are any indication. © Truck Trend Network Staff Toyota Tundra Spied Front End Although its grille and tailgate branding is covered up, the pickup is instantly recognizable as Toyota’s largest offering, the Tundra. Visible through the mesh camouflage is a diamond-pattern black plastic grille, and it might be hiding a hopefully functional vent on the leading edge of the hood (past iterations of the Tundra have featured a phony plastic scoop atop the grille).

Judging from these photos, the XC40 will take after its older siblings inside the cabin. Like the XC60 and XC90, the smaller SUV will feature a large central screen and very few buttons and knobs. The air vents are once again placed on either side of the screen, but they appear to be narrower and oriented vertically on this prototype.

Because of all the exterior camouflage, it's hard to say whether the production XC40 will stay true to the concept that debuted last year. But it's clear the XC40 will feature Thor's hammer LED headlights that have become a hallmark of Volvo. The prototype also has the same boxy rear window as the one on the concept. The mule features tall taillights and a prominent rear window spoiler just like the prototype, although it comes with more conventional door handles.

A plug-in hybrid powertrain has been confirmed for the Volvo XC40, although the model should come with an array of engine options. Other possible engine options include a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine as well as a four-cylinder diesel variant in addition to the plug-in hybrid model. The small crossover sits on Volvo's new Compact Modular Architecture along with the upcoming S40 sedan and V40 hatch. The platform also underpins a new crossover from Lynk & Co, which like Volvo, falls under Geely ownership.

The Volvo XC40's Design: "Much More In Your Face" .
Design boss Thomas Ingenlath says the upcoming 40 Series will boldly go where no Volvo has gone before.For the new 60 Series, Volvo went for a more muscular exterior to emphasize that their mid-sized SUV is not the seven-seater luxury barge the XC90 was born to be. But according to Head of Design Thomas Ingenlath, the Swedes will go much further for their upcoming compacts, which can't just be smaller, yet sportier versions of the XC60, a car that they already made sharper to differentiate from the range-topping XC90. Instead, they have the chance to go as radical as they did with the P1800 many years ago.
