Volvo’s next-generation compacts will be based on the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform established by Volvo in partnership with moms and dad company Geely. The platform guarantees innovative technologies in the locations of connectivity, electrification and autonomous driving, along with the refined driving characteristics you ‘d expect from a premium offering. It’s already spawned a vehicle for Geely’s brand-new Lynk & Co brand name, and the next recipient will be the XC40. We’re anticipating the XC40 to go on sale in 2018, as a 2019 model. Competitors will consist of the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Cadillac XT4, Infiniti QX30 and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
2019 Volvo XC40 Design
The XC40 will be mechanically almost similar to the Lynk & Co 01 compact crossover, which was recently spied on many celebrations in production guise. Anticipate the production variation of Volvo’s tiniest crossover ever to be revealed at a Chinese Auto Show in the first half of 2017.
The model will be accompanied by a hatchback and a sedan by 2018, but we must also take into consideration a long-wheelbase variation developed solely for the Chinese market. The second generation of the XC60, which is expected to be gone for the 2017 Geneva Motor Show will complete Volvo’s three-pillar crossover/SUV offensive, but it’s the XC40 which will probably become the best-seller of the trio.
2019 Volvo XC40 Engine
Base versions will be front-wheel-drive, while more effective models will also get AWD. Engine-wise, a modular family of 3- and four-cylinder powerplants is expected to provide the oomph, both fuel and diesel. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions are also in preparation, specifically since in 2015’s 40.1 Concept was powered by a T5 Twin Engine setup.
The most effective models in Volvo’s compact range will use a “T5” badge and feature a Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain consisting of an internal combustion engine and electric drive system, just like in the XC90 T8 Twin Engine. At the other end of the scale, there will be versions with inline-3 engines that Volvo recently verified will feature “T2” and “T3” badges. Anticipate D2, D3 and D5 diesel variants too, though most likely not in the United States.
