Marhaba Motoring Reviews the Volvo XC40 T5 R-Design

It’s already European Car of the Year 2018 and Best Medium SUV from EcoCar magazine

Welcome to the brand-new, all-new Volvo XC40. Firstly and very clearly, this is an outstanding SUV delivering ample engine power, a smooth ride, and agile handling. Inside, you’ll find arguably the best cabin in the class, with upscale materials, lots of standard and available features, two rows of roomy seats with lots of cool storage spaces.

The XC40 design is stand-out distinctive and dynamic; it’s the authentic SUV for city life and can take any challenges that local terrain and climate may pose. Its high ground clearance, large wheels and true SUV proportions give it a powerful stance. And from the strong front grille to the beautifully detailed taillights it’s clearly a new XC40 and still every inch a Volvo. Uniquely Scandinavian and unmistakably urban, yet starts from only QAR159,000.

Wherever you take your XC40, you feel in total control. With the same engine as the larger XC60, performance is great and you can feel the agile, energetic response as you drive. Select the mode to suit your mood, adjusting the engine, automatic gearbox, Electronic Stability Control, steering and Start/Stop settings. In the city or on the open road the sophisticated suspension always gives a great ride and the all-wheel drive delivers improved traction, more efficient acceleration and even more security in slippery conditions.

Smart powertrains give you the responsiveness you want, low emissions and fuel consumption. There’s no need to compromise. It’s all thanks to the new family of sophisticated turbocharged engines. These compact, lightweight powertrains balance smooth power with efficiency. And they keep weight at the front of the car to a minimum, which improves handling agility.

Now, forget the technology for a moment and just enjoy the outstanding interior environment. You don’t even need to drive anywhere to enjoy it! But please, get a brochure or go to the showroom on Khalifa Street to appreciate all the glorious detail and safety features in the new XC40 and all those ultra practical storage solutions. There a reason – indeed many reasons – why the brilliant new Volvo XC40 is voted Car of the Year 2018.

With the worldwide success story of the all-new XC40, Volvo again proves that they have what it takes to be a member of the motoring elite.
