About the Premium Design

With the combination of lightweight materials and better power arrangement, the overall outcome will be more promising and appealing.
This new XC40 is inspired from the bigger SUV but there is something distinctive about the model. The car will have a clamshell design for the hood, the upswept rear window, and also a new improvement for the wheel arch. When compared to the XC60, it is shorter with big wheels.
