The smallest Swedish crossover, 2022 Volvo XC40, will hit markets by the end of this year. Last year, the manufacturer made some significant upgrades, and it added an all-new electric T8 Recharge version to its lineup. Basically, for 2022, the new subcompact crossover utility vehicle will receive mild refreshments, keeping the same attractive grille honed-in by Thor’s hammer headlamps.
Inside, the XC40 still supplies room for five, which is ideal for small families. The cabin is clean, modern, and even comparably staid. Moreover, Volvo will introduce this year more standard features and some new interior colors as well.
