Volvo’s next-generation compacts will be based upon the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform established by Volvo in collaboration with moms and dad company Geely. The platform promises innovative technologies in the areas of connectivity, electrification and autonomous driving, as well as the refined driving characteristics you ‘d expect from a premium offering.
It’s already generated 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. Rivals will include the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Cadillac XT4, Infiniti QX30 and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
2019 Volvo XC40 Design
The XC40 will be mechanically nearly similar to the Lynk & Co 01 compact crossover, which was just recently spied on numerous events in production guise. Expect the production version of Volvo’s smallest crossover ever to be unveiled at a Chinese Auto Show in the very first half of 2017.
The model will be accompanied by a hatchback and a sedan by 2018, however we need to also take into account a long-wheelbase variation developed exclusively 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 most likely end up being the best-seller of the trio.
2019 Volvo XC40 Engine
Base versions will be front-wheel-drive, while more powerful models will likewise get AWD. Engine-wise, a modular family of three- and four-cylinder powerplants is expected to supply the oomph, both gas and diesel. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions are also in preparation, particularly considering that last year’s 40.1 Concept was powered by a T5 Twin Engine setup.
The most effective models in Volvo’s compact range will wear a “T5” badge and feature a Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain including an internal combustion engine and electrical 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 just recently confirmed will feature “T2” and “T3” badges. Expect D2, D3 and D5 diesel variants also, though probably not in the United States.
