And, by looking at its design, we can say that that first design won’t get too many changes, between the prototype and the commercial model that will be produced later.
Volvo has started the production of this new series since seven years ago. With Geely as their partner, they work on the second generation XC90. They try to make the new model from this series. And then, S90, V90, and XC90 came up. After that, in 2018, the new series and design will also be experienced some modification and changes, through this new XC40.

First of all, Volvo used CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform as the base to develop their car. And, this isn’t only the first time they use it. They have been used this platform when they have a partnership with Geely. They use this platform because it gives a lot of benefits, especially in the technologies department.

It’s important because technologies will become one of most important thing in today’s automotive industry. Car connectivity feature, electrification par, and autonomous driving feature are what the car become the most demanding car today.

Mostly, it will use the modular family type, which is the three or four-cylinder engine. By using this engine type, the power that it produces will be much stronger. And, that’s not all. We also expect that Volvo provides two options for the engine type. That means you will be able to get the petrol or diesel type engine.
Still, in the engine aspect, we get the clear image from the first reveal in 2016. At that time, the 40.1 Concept, the first model of XC40 use T5 Twin Engine setup. If Volvo doesn’t change this setup or if they only did slight touch, we can expect this type of engine will be available for XC40.
