Volvo XC40 in Exeter, NH

An Overview of the 2021 Volvo XC40

Volvo is a company known for providing customers with reliable and safe vehicles, and its latest offerings are also stylish and capable. The 2021 Volvo XC40 is a compact SUV that has a lot of excellent qualities. It's sporty and versatile, and it has many high-end features.

Trim Levels

At Volvo Cars of Exeter in Exeter, NH, we carry three trims of the XC40. The Momentum is the starting trim, but don't let its position at the lower end of the spectrum deceive you. The Momentum feels luxurious, as it's outfitted with leather seats, a large touchscreen, 18-inch five-spoke wheels, and a 12.3-inch digital display. The R-Design is the next available trim, and it's upgraded with larger wheels and Nappa leather upholstery. Our most premium trim is the Inscription. It has even more sophisticated details in its cabin, and its technology package is very impressive.

There's also the XC40 Recharge. This model is one that relies exclusively on electric power. It has an excellent range, and it can be charged at your home or any public charging station. It can be convenient to charge a vehicle overnight, and if you'd like to take advantage of faster charging, there is a more efficient type of outlet that can be installed at your home.


The XC40 looks athletic. It sits fairly high off the ground, and it has angles sculpted into its body that give it an attractive appearance. More angles are found in its taillights, and upfront, there's a bold grille. The XC40 can come with a two-tone color scheme, helping it seem more modern.

Inside the cabin, things are quite spacious. You'll have enough room to accommodate four passengers besides yourself comfortably, and the people in the back seat will have over 36 inches of legroom. Behind that second row of seats, there's a large cargo area with a volume of nearly 35 cubic feet. If you ever have to transport larger items around Portsmouth, you could utilize the roof racks or fold-down seats to expand cargo capacity to approximately 65 cubic feet.

As one would expect from a Volvo, there's a beauty in the cabin that's hard to miss. Everything feels organized and streamlined, and the multiple storage compartments will help you keep things organized. The quality of the workmanship shines through, and we think that you'll be pleasantly surprised by how peaceful it can be to sit inside an XC40.


The type of engine an XC40 runs on will depend on the exact model. The T4 models are equipped with front-wheel drive. They use two-liter turbocharged engines that can generate almost 190 horsepower and over 220 pound-feet of torque. This is a great amount of capability, but there's good news if you're interested in having more power. The T5 models, which are all-wheel-drive versions, can do much more than their counterparts, coming with 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. If you're interested in the XC40 Recharge, you'll be happy to hear that it comes with 402 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque. It's remarkable what this plug-in model can do.


Volvo has made it a point to integrate driver-assist systems into its newest models. The new XC40 can continually monitor how it's doing, and if the situation calls for it, the SUV can apply pressure to its brakes and make small adjustments to steering to keep people safe. Automated emergency braking is standard, and this system can help drivers avoid cars and pedestrians. Other standard features include lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist.

Interior and Technology

As mentioned, the Volvo XC40 has many luxurious details. Leather seats, high-quality interior trim, and convenient amenities all give people a treat. Power-adjustable front seats make it easy to get into an optimal position, and a responsive and efficient climate control system is useful. The nine-inch touchscreen is simple to use, and being able to connect a smartphone to the vehicle is so convenient.
