The 2021 Volvo XC40 at Mitchell Volvo in Simsbury, CT, XC40 is an energetic compact SUV with two turbocharged engine options that deliver satisfying acceleration on the roads of West Hartford. The 184- hp T4 engine comes with front-wheel drive, and the more powerful 248-hp T5 gives you All Wheel Drive, standard. All Wheel Drive allows each tire to rotate at its own speed in turns, so it's better than four-wheel drive as you drive around Hartford, especially in slippery weather. A thoughtfully designed cabin puts the driver in a more commanding position than rivals like the BMW x1 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. New for 2021: Blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross-traffic alert, leather upholstery, adaptive LED headlamps, power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function and rear parking sensors.
