The Elegant And Exciting 2022 Volvo XC40

2022 Volvo XC40: You won't mistake it for other SUVs and you won't mistake it for ordinary

The new 2022 Volvo XC40 available at Volvo Cars West County in Manchester, MO has already been chosen the "#1 Luxury Subcompact SUV" by Motor Trend. It comes with an unusual exterior design that won't blend in anywhere. It also comes with a whole carload of practical features, including the long list of reassuring safety features Volvo is known for. Here's a high-level preview.

Design

The exterior of the 2022 Volvo XC40 at Volvo Cars West County is not just another bland SUV. The expressive contours of the XC40 clearly declare its independence from the conventional. Even the color palette is provocative, with Blackstone, Fusion Red and Thunder Grey. The interior reflects an art deco sensibility, and it's marked by luxurious details that are outside the realm of the expected.

Performance and Handling Issues

A 2.0-Liter turbocharged inline-four powers the new Volvo XC40 and it's teamed up with an eight-speed automatic. The Recharge is an all-electric model with a dual-motor electric powertrain. The new mild hybrid is focused on efficiency, saving fuel by regaining energy every time you brake as you drive around St. Louis.

Interior & Technology

While many SUVs provide only a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen at the base, the new Volvo XC40 gives you a 9.0-inch screen to run its Sensus infotainment system. Smartphone compatibility is built-in, allowing you to utilize your favorite Apple or Android apps like music selection or directions. Access is available with voice commands, so you can keep your attention focused on the road. Wireless charging comes with the R-Design and Inscription trims.

You'll find two standard USB ports in the front row and a generously-sized 12.3-inch digital gauge display is also standard. The base-level audio is a very credible eight-speaker system, and for a higher level of sound, consider the available Harman Kardon system with 14 speakers.

Volvo supplies plenty of cargo space, with 57.5 cubic feet available behind the first row. Legroom is also gratifying, with 40.9 inches in the first row. Headroom is slightly over 40 inches in the front row and almost as much in the second: 39.1 inches, which will be appreciated on road trips departing soon from Chesterfield, MO.

Safety

Volvo demonstrates its passionate commitment to safety in the 2022 XC40. This new model earned the highest possible rating from the national organization that assesses highway safety, with five out of five stars. It was also named a Top Safety+ Pick by the best-known national insurance-based safety institute.

Among the safety features that must have impressed the judges was a system that warns the driver if it perceives a pedestrian in a vulnerable position on the path ahead. Another system keeps an eye on the driver's blind spot and issues an alert if there's an oncoming vehicle that's not easily visible.

Trim Levels

The Volvo XC40 for 2022 offers three trims in the gasoline-powered models: Momentum, R-Design and Inscription. As mentioned earlier, there's also a Recharge electric available and a mild hybrid. The Inscription offers appealing available luxuries like premium leather upholstery and a crystal glass shifter.
