Model Preview

Volvo has recently announced that the XC40 and XC40 Recharge will be getting refreshes for the 2023 model year. First introduced in 2017, the XC40 has become one of Volvo’s top sellers. To keep it modern, the automaker is giving it and its electric counterpart a range of updates to the style, powertrain, and tech.

For the style updates, a new front bumper and frameless, more integrated grille plate are being given to the XC40 Recharge to visually link it to the C40 Recharge. The signature Thor’s Hammer headlights will take on a new shape and now have pixel LED light technology. Other changes include a new wheel design and exterior color options. Inside the cabin, the upholstery is receiving a leather-free option. Now standard for the entire XC40 lineup is a built-in Google system that enables consumers to transition their digital at-home life into their cars. Included in this Google system are Google Maps for navigation, Google Assistant for voice control, and Google Play for apps and entertainment.

In keeping with the company’s desire to become fully electric, Volvo is moving the XC40 to all mild-hybrid options. The automaker didn’t give any more specifics than that, so we’re left to wonder exactly what kind of hybrid powertrain the compact SUV will have and whether it will keep its 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine.

The 2023 XC40 lineup is currently in production and while it doesn’t have an exact release date, retailers are expected to start receiving stock this summer. With a refresh and updated features, it’s possible that the newest XC40 will cost a little more than the current model’s MSRP of $36,195. Interested consumers can go to the automaker’s website to order and reserve their Volvo.

Being a hybrid compact SUV, the 2023 Volvo XC40 will have some competition in the form of the Toyota RAV4 Prime, Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, and Hyundai Tucson PHEV.
