Can the new SUVs from Volvo topple their German rivals?

@Johnson & Perrott Fleet we have had the pleasure of checking out some demo models from Volvo Cars Ireland recently

We put them through their paces as we try to evaluate the pros and cons for the benefit of our leasing customers (I know, it’s a tough job but someone’s gotta do it)

The models pictured here are the new XC60 and XC40 – both are Geartronic(automatic) with the powerful yet smooth 2.0 D4 engine and 190bhp on tap. Grip is plentiful from the AWD system and the ride quality is smooth and very very comfortable. With the option of ‘drive select’ the vehicle can be kept in a more economical driving mode to save fuel or changed in to ‘dynamic’ mode when you need to get a bit more of a move on. The power delivery is there when you need it and never sounds rough or over worked.

Some of the highlights of the models include the likes of:

  • Dynamic Chassis
  • Drive Select
  • LED Headlights with Active High Beam incorporating Day Running lights
  • 2-Zone Electronic Climate Control with ‘CleanZone’ Air Quality System and Pollen Filter
  • 3″ Active TFT Crystal Driver’s Information Display
  • Apple Car Play
  • Pilot Assist – adaptive cruise control with lane keeping assist for semi-autonomous driving
  • Leather Heated Front Seats / steering wheel / windscreen
  • Reverse Camera / 360 surround view camera
  • Power tailgate
  • Wireless charging
  • Panoramic power sunroof

The XC40 and XC60 are definite contenders for the German manufacturers and they are right up at the top of the class in our opinion
