Volvo XC40

Volvo was once renowned for its boxy, practical wagons. There are still Volvo wagons to be had but nowadays the brand's bread-and-butter is neither wagons nor conventional sedans – it's SUVs.

The Volvo XC40 opens the Volvo range, offering a choice of two different 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engines plus a 1.5-litre turbo three-cylinder plug-in hybrid. An all-electric model is also on the way, while the XC40 range offers a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.

It's connected better with the market than the previous entry-level Volvo, the V40. In 2019, for example, it was narrowly Australia's best-selling small luxury SUV, outselling rivals from BMW and Mercedes-Benz. We reckon its classy cabin and cute, chunky styling helped with that victory.
