2022 Volvo XC40: Research Volvo's Refined and Versatile Small SUV in Barrington, near Hoffman Estates and Elgin, IL

The 2022 XC40 may be the smallest and most affordable nameplate in the automaker's lineup, but it still delivers everything one expects from a premium Volvo model. The cabin is comfortable and contemporary, with versatile accommodations, advanced tech, and Volvo's unmistakable Scandinavian craftsmanship and design sensibilities. It's also enjoyable to drive, with plenty of pep to match its elegant yet playful exterior style. And with its nimble size and agile handling, it's a perfect choice for Elgin-area drivers seeking luxury and versatility with city-friendly maneuverability.


Standard power for the Volvo XC40 comes from a T4 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that sends 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. For drivers in Hoffman Estates seeking increased internal incentive for their daily commutes, the XC40's T5 variant equips a higher-tuned 2.0L turbo-four engine (248 hp, 258 lb-ft), plus standard all-wheel drive for better handling and control in more challenging conditions.

The Volvo XC40 is also the platform for Volvo's first all-electric model. The XC40 Recharge Twin is powered by two electric motors (402 hp, 487 lb-ft), with a 75-kWh battery providing an EPA-estimated 223 miles of emissions-free range.

Accommodations and Versatility

Passengers in all seating positions will enjoy the XC40's roomy accommodations with attractive, modern styling, high-quality materials, and plush, ergonomic seats for long-distance comfort. Standard comfort and convenience amenities include heated front seats, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and automatic climate control. And with the available Climate package, you'll be well prepared for Illinois winters, with extra equipment like headlight washers, a heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats.

With all seats in use, the Volvo XC40 reserves 21 cubic feet of storage for your luggage, groceries, or other gear. And when you need to prioritize cargo, the 60/40-split second row folds easily to provide up to 57.5 cubic feet of max capacity.

Technology and Safety

The XC40's 9-inch Sensus touchscreen seamlessly integrates infotainment features and cabin controls, preserving the sophisticated, minimalist-inspired layout without compromising accessibility. The standard 12-inch digital instrument panel is configurable to your viewing preferences, allowing you to view important driving and vehicle information more easily while maintaining focus on the road.

For Volvo, safety isn't something reserved for a higher trim level or package add-on. That's why the 2022 Volvo XC40 comes standard with a full suite of IntelliSafe advanced safety features and driver-assistance technologies, including:

  • Volvo City Safety (forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking)
