Volvo XC40 Features


  • One of the most notable technology features is the 12.3-inch Digital Driver Display. This display comes standard and replaces the traditional analog dash and dials with a fully digital display. The display shows relevant information directly in your line of sight for easy use.
  • If you're planning on sharing your XC40 with your family members, the XC40 comes with a useful car sharing with a digital key feature. This feature allows Morganton drivers to share their XC40 with family members by sending a digital key that can unlock the XC40 when the key is present inside. Before the digital key is sent, the one borrowing it requests a timeframe that the owner chooses to accept.
  • The available 360-degree Surround View Camera uses a network of cameras and radar sensors to compile a bird's-eye view of the XC40. This feature allows for extra confidence when maneuvering into tight spots.
  • The standard 9-inch Sensus Touch Screen has an intuitive tablet-like interface that allows for swiping and pinch-zooming.
  • Available Inductive Smart Phone Charging makes charging your phone on the go a breeze since no wires are required.


  • The XC40 has two engine options that both utilize an advanced engine management system, turbocharged technology, and common-rail direct fuel injection. These two powertrain options include the T4 that produces 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, and the T5 that generates 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
  • The XC40 offers an available All-Wheel Drive system with Instant Traction™. This AWD system comes with an electric management system that continually monitors the speed of the wheels, the engine torque, throttle, brakes, and more. Wheels with the best grip get the most power as conditions change. Power is instantly reduced from slipping tires and transferred to wheels with more traction.
  • Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent come standard and help with driving up and down hills with confidence.
  • Start/Stop Technology reduces fuel consumption by turning off the engine in idle situations.


  • City Safety Collision Avoidance Technology helps look out for dangers and even automatically brakes when necessary. This technology can detect dangerous objects that you are approaching, day or night.
  • Oncoming Lane Mitigation can detect when you travel over the center line and are heading towards an oncoming vehicle. It will then steer you back to safety in your lane.
  • Run-Off Road Mitigation continually scans the road in front of the XC40 to detect a potential runoff scenario. If one is detected, front seat belts automatically tighten to provide extra safety.
