The XC40 stands on Volvo’s new CMA platform, which will also underpin the upcoming Geely Lynk & Co 01 SUV. The production version of the 01 is expected to debut in Shanghai as well. The XC40 and the Lynk & Co 01 will be manufactured alongside each other in a new factory in China. Later on they will be joined by the Volvo S40 and by the Lynk & Co CS11.

Engines: a 1.5 liter three-cylinder engine with 180hp, a 1.5 plug-in hybrid with about 220hp 254hp, and a four-cylinder 2.0 turbo with 240hp.

The XC40 can’t come soon enough for Volvo China now that the compact-luxury crossover-SUV segment is booming. Cars like the Audi A3, BMW X1, and Mercedes-Benz GLA are selling like hot rice in country.
