In December 2020, Volvo Announced plans to launch its 2022 fleet of SUVs including Hybrid and fully electric vehicles, with the fully electric 2022 Volvo C40 Coupe Concept remaining a talk of the town. The Volvo XC40 which is the smallest Volvo currently on sale is also slated to release in 2022 and will get minor changes. For the year 2022, Volvo’s relatively small SUV packs a lot of impulsive character thanks to its handsome design and extensive feature list of the Volvo XC40.

However, the fully electric 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge offers a SUV that coincides with the demands of today’s consumer who are looking to step into the EV lifestyle. The Volvo XC40 Coupe SUV also brings new arrangements for the year 2022, however, most of them are on the inside of the Volvo XC40 SUV some miniscule changes did appear on the outside of the SUV. The 2022 Volvo XC40 quirky and unique styling manages to stand apart from competitors like the BMW X1, the Audi Q3, and the Mercedes-Benz GLA class, all of which look bland in comparison.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The 2022 Volvo XC40 serves as a great starting point for customers looking for their first luxury SUV. The compact SUV manages to impress with the plethora of features on offer, a comfortable ride, and sporty handling. The 2022 Volvo XC40 price is expected to kick off from $36,345 and goes upto $42,450 for the top trim Inscription. For 2022, the standard XC40 will get only minor updates, and will mostly remain the same as last year’s model.

2022 Volvo XC40 Pricing and Features

The 2022 Volvo XC40 is expected to get the same trim levels and optional packages as last year, which are: Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription. Volvo also offers four optional packages: Premium, Vision, Advanced, and Multimedia package which will offer a lot more features.

We Recommend:

The Volvo XC40 2022 Edition is a value for money premium compact SUV. It is the most affordable way to own a Volvo and will be offering new changes on the inside as well as outside of the vehicle, prices are slated to increase by a couple of thousand dollars but that sounds reasonable. You can buy any Volvo XC40 trim for 2022 based on the features you choose for your car as all sound quite reasonable and offer appropriate quality.

2022 Volvo XC40 Engine and Performance

The XC40 will continue to be offered with two drivetrain options. The T4 FWD version will get a turbocharged 2.0L Inline-4 engine that produces 187 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque paired with 8-speed automatic transmission. The T5 AWD version gets more power and torque at 248 hp and 258 lb-ft with an all-wheel-drive system.

The XC40 in its T4 FWD Trim is the slowest performer of the lot. But upgrading to the T5 AWD trim adds a lot more performance and a capable all-wheel-drive system that makes the SUV safer in tricky situations.

2022 Volvo XC40 Fuel Economy

The XC40 will continue to offer similar efficiency figures as last year since there are no drivetrain changes. We can expect economy ratings of 23 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highways, for a combined rating of 26 MPG for the base T4 version, while the T5 will offer slightly lower figures.

2022 Volvo XC40 Interior

The 2022 XC40 gets plenty of features on offer. The vehicle comes with a typical Swedish design that is both functional and good-looking. Unlike some of its competitors, the XC40 continues to offer plenty of space inside for 5 passengers to travel comfortably. The Momentum and R-Design trim levels get a lot of sporty touches like orange carpeting, textured metallic inserts, and better AC vent design which will appeal to youngsters. The top-end inscription model gets a much classier design with wooden inserts and a unique shift knob crafted from Orrefors crystal.

Volvo continues to use its Sensus Connect infotainment system that comes with a huge 9-inch touchscreen display in the center. All models of the XC40 will get the 9-inch touchscreen Sensus Connect infotainment system that comes with features like Apple car play and Android Auto connectivity, Voice control, Bluetooth, and a premium sound system as standard. The optional multimedia package includes a 600 watt Harman Kardon sound system with 13-speakers for a studio-like experience and a Sensus navigation system. Hopefully, Volvo will fix the lagging issues that occur just after startup for the 2022 model year.

The front seats are well designed with plenty of support on offer and they get leather upholstery as standard. Both the driver and front passenger gets 8-way power adjustability with memory function and power lumbar for the driver as standard. The R-design trim level gets perforated Nappa leather upholstery with unique design elements. The R-design and Inscription trim also get manual cushion extension for both driver and passenger for extra support. The rear seats are also surprisingly spacious for such a compact car, with plenty of headroom and legroom on offer. The optional premium package adds power-folding rear backrest and power headrests for added convenience.

The Inscription trim gets a panoramic sunroof and dual-zone climate control as standard, both of which are optional on the lower trim levels. The optional premium package adds a lot more features like wireless charging, semi-autonomous driving, keyless entry, and more.

The XC40 comes with a small boot that can accommodate 21 cubic feet of cargo. With the rear seats folded flat, the capacity increases to a modest 47 cubic feet which should be enough for most owners. There are plenty of cargo spaces on offer inside the cabin for added convenience. All models of the XC40 also get a power tailgate with programmable height.

2022 Volvo XC40 Exterior

The XC40 continues to get a trendy and sportier look compared to its larger siblings. All three trim levels get distinctive design elements depending on what the customer prefers. The base Momentum trim gets a rather simple and confident design with an optional white roof on offer. The standard 19-inch wheels get a 5 spoke design with minimal design elements compared to higher trims. 

The R-design trim looks the sportiest of the bunch with an R-design grille at the front with gloss black frame, gloss black roof available with all exterior colors, and a lot more gloss black elements like door mirrors, window trims, and skid plates. The 19-inch alloy wheels also get a much sportier design. 

The Inscription trim is the most expensive and gets the most luxurious design with a chrome grille, stainless steel scuff plates, bright trims, and a panoramic moonroof, giving it an elegant and sophisticated design.

Both the R-design and Inscription trims get badges on the C pillar. Traditional Volvo design elements like Thor’s hammer LED headlights and LED taillights are present. The new Recharge model gets unique design elements like new heels and a new grille design which is filled in.

Standard exterior features include LED headlights and daytime running lights with auto high beam, dual tailpipes, tinted windows, and roof rails.

2022 Volvo XC40 Safety

Volvo added a lot more safety tech to the XC40 last year, which allowed it to receive exceptional ratings in all crash tests and it received the coveted “Top Safety Pick+” award from the IIHS. Other than the usual safety features like 7 airbag, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability control, all models of the XC40 will come with active safety features like driver alert control, road sign information, lane-keeping assist, automatic braking after a collision, whiplash injury prevention system, run-off road mitigation, emergency crash notification and more. Volvo continues to redefine the safety benchmark with its newer models. 

Opting for the vision and advanced package will add features like a blind spot information system with rear cross-traffic alert, park assist pilot, 360-degree camera, active bending headlights, and the capable pilot assist system with semi-autonomous driving and adaptive cruise control.

2022 Volvo XC40 Final Verdict

With a lot of optional packages on offer, the XC40 can vary greatly in price depending on the options selected. We can expect Volvo to launch the 2022 XC40 in Fall this year and joining it will be the new all-electric XC40 Recharge model which will be priced quite a bit higher at $53,990. The Recharge model will be a good starting point for customers who want to get into the luxury EV space.

The only car you need.

Pros - High quality cabin materials, fuel efficient,loads of standard features,

Cons - The multi-function media screen needs some time getting used to.

Ondoubtedly the best car in the competition. This car doesnt need much talking as you would instantly fall in love with this car. I found this car a best alternative for frequently bought German cars, as it feels a bit more subtle and classy than the rest of the crowd. It might be because I am biased toward clean and minimal things in life and the XC40 is just that. It just has the right size, right power and right drivability making it the only car you need in your garage. One of the finest dealeships i have ever been to. Everything they do has a touch of proffesionalism as expected from a brand like volvo.

Worth the money

Pros - Great value, Volvo quality, styling

Cons - Acceleration, mpg

Money well spent Overall the whole experience was decent. There wasn’t anything notable about the dealership. I had to wait for my new car for about two weeks and the process wasn't streamlined either. The staff is polite and that's what made me continue the purchase from them

The contender in the cmpact suv segment

Pros - Appealing design, great driveability, plenty of safety features

Cons - A bit of noise creeps in the cabin at higher revs

get one Driving this vehicle is sheer pleasure, the acceleration is very good and so is the handling, the seats give you good support. The vehicle feels very planted on the road and I feel confident at the turns. rear heated seats and steering wheels in the climate package, auto dimming and folding side mirrors Plush leather seats, large infotainment screen with digital gauge cluster, good visibility The standard volovo design with typical lined DRLs, concaved grill and long vertical tail lights makes it look appealing 5 star rating from NHTSA and top safety pick from IIHS along with various standard safety features yes priced reasonably at $40000 very good
