Why does it matter? Being a Volvo, you know it will have the latest in crash avoidance and crash mitigation technology. Officially, the company says the XC40 will be “among the safest, well-equipped compact SUVs available,” but that sounds like typical Swedish understatement considering Volvo’s reputation. Like so many other Volvo’s the base XC40 will be powered by the company’s ubiquitous 2.0-litre turbo-four, but there will also be hybrid and perhaps even a fully electric version to follow.

When is it coming? Early 2018.

Should you buy it? Well, it depends on what you mean by “buying.” Oh, you can certainly purchase it and the base XC40 will retail for less than $39,500 making it very competitive with its direct BMW and Audi counterparts and, in Volvo’s own words, “the most powerful luxury compact SUV priced under $40,000 in the automotive industry.” The fully-loaded R-Design version — complete with 20-inch wheels and lush leather — should squeak out the door for a little less than $50,000.

But the really big news is that Volvo Canada is also rolling out its Care by Volvo – a no-negotiating, single monthly “subscription” plan. Care by Volvo makes owning a car as easy as owning a cell phone, says Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelson as the plan includes the price of the car, the cost of insurance and running maintenance charges.
