Volvo XC40 Performance

Wherever you drive, bystanders will hear the purr of the Volvo XC40’s 2.0L turbocharged engine. When paired with its front-wheel drivetrain and 187 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, you’ll be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds. That’s the equivalent of these towable toys:

  • A couple of jet skis
  • A lightweight travel trailer
  • A utility trailer with a few snowmobiles

If you’re looking for a SUV that can help you navigate roads during winter weather or help you feel confident traveling off the beaten path, the Volvo XC40 offers available all-wheel-drive models.

If you plan to take your family on a road trip to the Poconos or the shore, you’ll be able to leave gas stations in your rearview, thanks to its EPA-estimated 23 city MPG/32 highway MPG rating.1 Its 14.2-gallon fuel tank also helps you stay away from the pump longer.
