The midsize crossover model from Sweden, named 2019 Volvo XC40 is spied while testing in polar conditions. As we know, this model was previewed in 2016 by the 40.1 concept car and if we compare the spy photos with the mentioned concept, we can notice that the spied vehicle is similar to the concept. We’ve received the spy photos, it’s not much, but we can’t see some things from the pictures. According to Company, this model will be based on the Compact Modular Architecture platform, (CMA) developed by Volvo. This platform promises a lot of good things.

2019 Volvo XC40 Exterior design
The exterior design of the approaching model will provide some kind of boxy design and that looks very nice. We can’t provide you a lot of specific details because, on the photos, this model is heavily camouflaged. The front side will be probably the nicer part of the vehicle, and here we can expect the same grille that we used to see in other newly models from Volvo. In the middle of the grille, we can expect Volvo logo. Also, the grille will be finished chrome in vertical lines. The headlights will be modernistic, and we can expect LED headlamps. Under the grille, we can see massive front bumper that will be fitted with nicely designed openings for the fog lights. Also, here we can expect air intakes. According to rendering photos, this model will provide a black colored roof. Unfortunately, we don’t have more pieces of information about the exterior design.

Volvo XC40 2019 Interior design
The interior design of this model is even more mysterious than the exterior design. We don’t have details about the design and about the systems, and everything here is based on the rumors. What we know for certain is that we can expect a lot of safety features, but as we know, we used to see that in all Volvo models. Also, the new Volvo XC40 2019 cabin will probably provide a lot of premium materials and high-tech features. Just to let you know, that there is no official information about the cabin, and all rumors are unreliable. Maybe the certain thing about the cabin is that we can anticipate leather upholstery for the seats.
