Overview

2024 Volvo XC40 Changes

The 2024 Volvo XC40 is no longer available with front-wheel drive or the base 194-horspower B4 powertrain for 2024. The B5 powertrain with the turbo four-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive is the new base configuration. The base Core trim now comes with a Bright Exterior theme that includes shiny exterior trim pieces, while keyless entry and a wireless charging pad are standard. The Plus trim now comes with a surround-view parking camera, larger 19-inch wheels, and an air purifier. Lastly, the Ultimate trim gains 20-inch wheels, and cornering lights as standard.

The all-electric XC40 Recharge gets a few changes for 2024, too. The EV arrives with a new 248-hp Single Motor variant with rear-wheel drive. The new trim also includes a larger 82-kWh battery pack. Volvo has not announced pricing for the model yet. Twin Motor models with AWD get updated electric motors to improve efficiency, which increases range. Dual-motor XC40 Recharge models can now travel up to 254 miles.

CarsDirect Tip

Regardless of whether you choose the gas-powered 2024 Volvo XC40 for the all-electric XC40 Recharge, we think the mid-level Plus trim is the best value option. The extra convenience features are nice to have in a luxury SUV and don’t dramatically increase the SUV’s price.

2024 Volvo XC40 Is Small But Polished

The 2024 Volvo XC40 holds fast to its reputation as a refined compact crossover with alert performance and strong safety credentials. The all-electric Recharge model receives new power configurations this year for enhanced range and handling. Though not as spacious as similarly priced rivals, the XC40 impresses with overall sophistication and quality. Drivers may need reminding that the XC40 carries the lowest base price in the Volvo lineup.

2024 Volvo XC40 Has The Look Of Quality

The XC40 makes the most of its tidy dimensions with intriguing styling details and a well-proportioned exterior design. The upright grille is flanked by hammer-shaped headlights that curve into the front fenders, and the contoured hood starts the profile with just the right amount of drama. The bright beltline terminates in a pronounced upkick, and black lower-body cladding provides a touch of ruggedness. The XC40's taillights sweep up the tailgate glass, meeting a rooftop spoiler. The Recharge distinguishes itself with a body-color panel in place of the traditional grille.

The interior follows current Volvo design language with a portrait-style touchscreen, vertical air outlets, and bright trim surrounding gloss-black surfaces. Buyers enjoy a satisfying choice of quality upholstery and finishes. The environment feels comfortably invigorating — and decidedly upscale for a small crossover.

2024 Volvo XC40 Offers Gas Or Electric Power

Volvo XC40

The XC40 starts at $41,995 including destination with a gas turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 247 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard on all gas models. This setup takes the XC40 from zero to 50 mph in 6.1 seconds.

The Recharge switches to rear-wheel drive architecture this year for increased range. Priced from $56,930, the Single Motor model carries a rear-mounted electric motor that develops 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The Recharge needs 6.9 seconds to hit 60 mph with the single motor, but it feels quicker in city driving thanks to the system's snappy torque delivery.

The Twin Motor version adds a front motor for all-wheel drive capability and a total of 402 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque. This $1,750 upgrade results in a zero to 60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds. The Recharge models offer a one-pedal driving mode that maximizes regenerative braking.

Every XC40 offers precise handling and a relatively firm ride. The gas XC40 is nimbler in corners due to its lower weight, but the Recharge feels more refined and composed in overall driving.

Towing capacity is a respectable 3,500 pounds across the lineup.

Is 2024 Volvo XC40 Good for Families?

The XC40 provides a comfortable cabin for four adults, along with 21 cubic feet of their gear. Although five can fit in a pinch, the rear seat feels cramped with three across. Both rows carry well-proportioned seats for exceptional comfort in a crossover this size, though door openings are on the small side.

Folding the rear seat opens up 47 cubic feet of load space. The Recharge features a small front trunk for concealed storage. Some families will need more room for people and things, but a family of four may find the XC40 just the right size for their active lifestyle.

Volvo XC40

Is The 2024 Volvo XC40 Good On Energy?

The gas XC40 turns in an average performance when it comes to fuel economy. EPA ratings of 24 miles per gallon city, 30 mph highway, and 26 combined are similar to the smallest luxury crossovers.

The Recharge is the obvious choice for efficiency. Single Motor models can travel up to 293 miles on a full charge and are EPA-rated at 106 MPGe in combined driving, equivalent to 3.1 miles per kWh. Twin Motor versions have a top range of 254 miles and deliver 98 MPGE combined, or 2.9 mi/kWh.

How Safe Is The 2024 Volvo XC40?

The XC40 has a strong safety record and plenty of available accident-avoidance technology. The XC40 earns a five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA and gets a top score of "Good" in most IIHS testing. The XC40 scores "Acceptable" in the updated IIHS side impact test, so it no longer qualifies as a Top Safety Pick.

Every XC40 comes equipped with lane-keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, and rear parking sensors. Options include surround-view cameras, adaptive cruise control, and a semi-autonomous highway driving system called Pilot Assist.

Is The 2024 Volvo XC40 A Good Crossover?

The XC40 offers the quality and refinement buyers seek in a luxury-branded crossover. The available electric powerplant only enhances performance, to say nothing of its inherent efficiency. The XC40 is indeed an impressive package — but still a small one. Some buyers may expect more in the way of sheer size for their money.

2024 Volvo XC40 Alternatives

The BMW X1 offers more cargo space and prestige but gets expensive when equipped. The Mercedes-Benz GLA is a potent performer that feels cramped with a crew aboard. As for the Recharge's competitors, the Audi E-Tron is larger inside but trails in driving range. The Jaguar I-Pace delivers more luxury and style at a substantially high price.
