2022 XC40 Research

Performance, Design & Interior

If you're yearning for a plush luxury SUV that's a cinch to park and maneuver in Albuquerque, try the 2022 Volvo XC40. This refined luxury crossover has lively handling and minimal body lean around corners. Volvo made wireless device charging standard on XC40 R-Design and Inscription trims for 2022, and you'll find numerous new models for sale at Corley's Albuquerque Volvo Cars.

Performance

The 2022 Volvo XC40 is a joy to drive, with peppy acceleration and poised handling. Its sophisticated suspension delivers a relaxing ride on most paved roads. Two available engines in the XC40 enable Albuquerque drivers to have the efficiency or get-up-and-go they desire. These powertrains include: 

  • Standard T4: Turbocharged 187-horsepower four-cylinder engine
  • Optional T5: Turbocharged 248-horsepower four-cylinder engine
An entirely separate model - the Volvo XC40 Recharge - is powered by a 75-kWh battery pack and two electric motors. When equipped with the standard engine, the XC40 gets 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The all-electric Recharge gets 79 MPG-equivalent in combined city/highway driving.        

Design

You'll be instantly attracted to the 2022 Volvo XC40. Its angular fenders, smoothly sculpted sides, and prominent wheel arches will draw compliments everywhere you go in Albuquerque. The XC40's signature grille, L-shaped taillights, and available color-contrast roof make it stand out from other small luxury SUVs.

Interior

Take a seat in the 2022 Volvo XC40 and you'll be delighted with its clean, minimalist layout. Leather upholstery comes standard, while textured metallic trim and driftwood inlays are available. There's plenty of passenger space in both rows, and the driver's seat is eight-way power-adjustable for ideal positioning. Albuquerque drivers who pack a lot of luggage on road trips will appreciate that the XC40 has more than 47 cubic feet of cargo space when its back seat is folded down.

Tech & Safety

Tech Features

All 2022 XC40s come with the vertically oriented, tablet-style Sensus Connect infotainment system that's slightly canted toward the driver. Almost everything inside the cabin is controlled by its 9-inch touch screen, but there are few redundant physical buttons. Other standard features in the new XC40 include: 

  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability
  • A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
  • An eight-speaker premium stereo system

Safety

The 2022 Volvo XC40 has not yet been safety tested by federal agencies, but the almost identical 2021 model won Top Safety Pick+ honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Cautious drivers in Albuquerque will like its plethora of standard driver assistance features, including: 

  • Forward collision warning with pedestrian detection
  • Front and rear automatic emergency braking   
  • Lane departure warning
