The new Volvo XC40 compact crossover due by year end may have a more dressed-down interior than its bigger XC90 and XC60 siblings.
Spy photos of the XC40 show a simpler cabin without the wood trim in the new entries built on Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture platform, including the large XC90 and midsize XC60. But the XC40 appears to share those vehicles' 9-inch infotainment touch screen.
Exterior spy photos of the heavily camouflaged XC40 reveal the Thor's hammer LED headlights that have become a hallmark of Volvo's latest models.
The XC40 revives Volvo's compact 40 series. It will be built on Volvo's front-wheel-drive Compact Modular Architecture platform, which was co-developed with parent company Geely and will be shared with the Lynk & CO brand.
