The Volvo XC40 SUV has received an upgrade and is the latest edition available in dealership stores.
The car was supposed to have had its own launch in a week’s time. But, one national importer couldn’t wait for it and leaked everything you need to know about the model.
When the new XC40 gets launched, it will directly rival the Audi Q2, Q3 and the BMW X1. Usually, leaks consist of photos and specification details. However, this time the company accidentally leaked an entire video that shows how the new car would look like. Based on the visuals, it is clear that the upcoming SUV will fill the spot after the bigger XC90 and the XC60.
The company’s popular Thor’s hammer headlight is found in the new Volvo XC40 SUV which has evolved into a sharp design. The side profile of the model is sleek and small so that it can easily be differentiated from the other models in the same lineup. A couple of new features can be found in the interior of the vehicle including support for wirelessly charging your smartphone, flexible loadspace making the boot bigger than before and textured materials used on the inside for better comfort.
