Changed my Range Rover Evoque for the new XC40 First Edition T5 AWD Auto. Brilliant car so far, as I have only had it a few weeks. Only two minor items to mention, firstly the infotainment system takes a bit of getting used too and secondly, the stop/start cannot be turned off, which is a bit of a pain when crawling in a traffic jam for five miles. Maybe Volvo could think about that aspect, as you could turn it off at the press of a button on the Evoque.
Had the Volvo XC40 for about a month now. So far so good generally. We have T3 model and ride is comfortable, car feels safe although some of the safety features seem a bit overbearing. Good drive and ride around town and on the motorway although, given engine size, not a fast accelerator - which is something you need to get used to. Plenty of options to get driving position just right and infotainment system good. Biggest issue is the gear box. Had to go back in for adjustment and now much better but still the weakest point of the car. Almost feels like they thought no one will buy a manual so we will save a few pounds here. Overall though very happy and despite being bottom of the range it suits our driving requirements just fine as we do little motorway driving at present.
Really enjoying my new XC40 - only just over a week hence - still learning about all the technology and safety features.
