Stand Out From The Crowd With Scandinavian Design

Did you know that Volvo vehicles were first developed as a response to especially rough Swedish roads? No other automotive manufacturer at the time was making vehicles tough enough for these roads. It wasn't long before the first Volvo rolled out of the factory in Gothenburg, Sweden. Today, the latest Volvo SUVs represent this heritage. Approach either the new Volvo XC40 or the XC60, and you'll become keenly aware that these aren't your typical small SUV or crossover.

You may first notice the signature headlight resembling Thor's Hammer, or perhaps it was the unique taillights that caught your eye. Both models also come standard with 18" 5-Spoke Silver Alloy Wheels. No matter what angle you're looking from, we think you'll agree that either of these new Volvo SUVs present a stylish sophistication that you can be proud to park anywhere. Of course, looks are only the beginning. Just wait until you step inside.

2022 Volvo XC40 vs 2022 Volvo XC60 Interior

A Luxurious & Technologically Advanced Interior

The new Volvo XC60 and XC40 models provide two rows of seating and generous options for cargo. While the XC40 is slightly smaller, it still offers a bit more headroom for front and rear passengers than the XC60. The cargo volume in both models is generous for their segments. The larger XC60 provides a bit more at 63.3 cubic feet compared to 57.5 cubic feet in the back of the new XC40. Though, space is only one difference.

As we mentioned above, the redesigned 2022 Volvo XC60 is now equipped with the latest Volvo connectivity software. It's powered by Android, and it is the most intuitive and easy-to-use infotainment system available today. The XC40 also comes with an advanced infotainment system that allows for seamless connection to your smartphone and so much more.

How Does The Performance Compare?

Whether it's the wheel of a new 2022 Volvo XC40 or XC60, you're taking control of world-class performance. Both models enter the market with front-wheel drive, and a 2.0-liter engine. For the smaller Volvo XC40, this engine puts a comfortable 187 horsepower under your right foot and 221 lb/ft of torque. That makes merging with freeway traffic, getting around slow traffic going uphill, or just zipping around town easy and enjoyable. The XC40 is also available as a hybrid or an all-electric version.

The latest Volvo XC60 is equipped standard with a hybrid powertrain to deliver 260 combined horsepower to ensure you're never in want of more power. This also means that the larger and more powerful XC60 still gets virtually the same fuel economy as the smaller XC40 at a combined 26 MPG. For the new Volvo XC60, that means up to 30 MPGe on the highway. Aside from the difference in power, you'll find these luxurious Scandinavian SUVs provide an especially comfortable ride and impeccable handling. Come in for a test drive to learn more.

What To Expect From Today's Volvo Safety

When it comes to reputations in the automotive industry, there may be none more prominent than the prestige that Volvo has earned for safety. Did you know that it was a Volvo engineer that first developed the three-point seatbelt that we all rely on today? The company then gave the design to the world for free because safety is precedent to all other Volvo pursuits. The latest XC40 and XC60 SUVs are certainly no exception

Aside from the modern safety features you expect in a new luxury car like advanced airbags and impact absorbing structures, these Volvo SUVs take safety to a higher level. Both models come standard with advanced safety features including Lane Keeping Aid, Oncoming Lane Mitigation, and rear Park Assist. A twelve-inch instrument panel is also standard for both models to provide driving information at a quick glance. Between the Volvo commitment to safety, the world's leading driver assistance technology, and more, it's no wonder that both of these vehicles have earned independent industry acclaim for being among the safest vehicles on the road.
