The XC40 is yet another great Volvo. Whilst the little touches of quality may be lacking when compared to the other 60 and 90 series cars, the XC40 is still up there with the best cars in the small SUV segment. The T5 model has performance to rival a hot hatch, albeit with a bit more lean through the corners. The XC40 is a great choice for a family car. But it is priced a bit too closely to the bigger, and better, XC60.
