New Volvo XC40 For Sale in Bethesda, MD

New Volvo XC40: Versatile Small Luxury SUV for Sale near Washington DC

While just about any small crossover can add a bit of versatility to your daily routine, for discerning Bethesda drivers seeking a more premium experience, it's hard to find a more intriguing and well-rounded option than the Volvo XC40. As the smallest SUV in Volvo's lineup, the XC40 is ideally suited to navigating busy Washington DC streets and crowded parking lots. But don't be deceived by outer appearances, as the XC40's diminished dimensions belie a surprisingly spacious cabin, with upscale accommodations, flexible cargo capacity, and a wealth of premium amenities. And with Volvo's signature Scandinavian design and craftsmanship, the XC40 is one of the most compelling nameplates in its class.


Whether it's navigating downtown streets, cruising the open highway, or winding through curvy backroads, the XC40 delivers an engaging driving experience with confident and balanced handling, precise steering, and plenty of motivation under the hood. Two gasoline engines are available, each paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The XC40 T4 is set in motion by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that powers the front wheels with 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. If you're seeking even more internal incentive, the available T5 powertrain features a higher-tuned 2.0L turbo-four that makes 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and comes standard with all-wheel-drive.

XC40 Recharge

As Volvo steadily transitions to an alternative-energy lineup, the XC40 Recharge P8 represents the first major step towards that goal. The automaker's first fully-electric production model finds its motivation in a pair of electric motors generating a combined 402 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque and capable of accelerating the XC40 Recharge to 60 mph from a standstill in less than 4.7 seconds. Powering the motors, a 78-kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides a range of over 200 miles, allowing Silver Spring drivers to enjoy almost a full week of emissions-free commutes on a single charge. With a standard home charging system, the XC40 Recharge can completely replenish its battery overnight, or about eight hours. And with a 150-kW DC fast charger, like those found at highway rest stops, it can charge from 10-percent to 80-percent in around 40 minutes.

Accommodations and Versatility

On the inside, the XC40 exhibits Volvo's inimitable Scandinavian design philosophy, showcasing a premium blend of luxury, technology, and refined Swedish minimalism. Wherever your adventures may lead, the XC40 can carry you in first-class comfort, with well-cushioned and bolstered ergonomic seats, high-quality materials, and ample accommodations for four adults. Behind the rear seats, the XC40 retains 21 cubic feet for your luggage, groceries, or other errands. And when you require even more cargo capacity, the 60/40-split second-row folds easily to expand capacity to 57.5 cubic feet.

Technology and Safety

Volvo's Sensus infotainment system brings your connected world right to your fingertips, making it easy to stay in touch, entertained, and on the right track. The 9-inch touchscreens portrait orientation allows for easier menu navigation, greater at-a-glance information absorption, and improved full-screen map views. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto seamlessly integrate your smartphone with the central display, providing familiar access to useful applications and functions like hands-free calling and messaging, streaming media, your music library, Google and Apple Maps, and much more.

Behind the steering wheel, a configurable 12.3-inch driver display puts all necessary information directly in front of you, allowing you to easily view driving metrics, infotainment and driver aid status, and even maps and turn-by-turn directions.

While other luxury makes may reserve many of their advanced safety technologies for the higher trim levels or locked in optional packages, the XC40 demonstrates Volvo's renowned commitment to safety by including them all as standard equipment.
