It’s the all-new 2019 Volvo XC40, a whole new subcompact (small SUV) offering from Volvo. In this video, Jenny checks out the special XC40 T5 Momentum AWD Launch Edition. So good, that it sold out even before we finished our review.

Since we shot the review the new models of the XC40 were just announced and include the XC40 T4 Inscription, the XC40 T4 Momentum, and the XC40 T5 R-Design. The T4 options will be less powerful petrol engines that should also be priced more competitively and now include 2WD options.

Being a timed and tried legend like the CR-V we know Honda will give it all it has to ensure it remains such a popular SUV choice, so adding a 7 seater trim seemed like the logical next time.
