2021 Volvo XC40 for Sale in Houston

The newest and smallest SUV in Volvo's lineup, the XC40 is a perfect choice for discerning Houston drivers seeking the flexibility and comfort of a crossover, in a more compact and nimbler package. The XC40's comparatively more diminutive proportions make it well-suited to navigating crowded city streets and fitting in tighter parking spaces. For the 2021 model year, Volvo made several advanced safety features standard and added two rear-seat USB-C ports as a standard feature. Here is a look at the 2021 Volvo XC40.

Though its exterior appears small, the XC40 retains crossover practicality, offering comfortable seating for up to five riders with 21 cubic-feet to spare for cargo. For larger errand runs, the 60/40-split rear seat folds down on one or both sides, increasing the cargo hold to a maximum 47.2 cubic-feet.

While it excels in the areas of crossover utility and convenience, the XC40 stands apart from the competition with it's elegant and assertive style, upscale interior accommodations, and the unrivaled Scandinavian craftsmanship and design for which all Volvo vehicles are known.

The performance of the XC40 is powered by a 248-horsepower engine, and it has the security and stability of available all-wheel-drive. This powerful engine is paired with a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission that is quick and responsive. The XC40 also offers something that is rare for compact crossovers. 

Volvo XC40 Powertrains

  • XC40 T4 models are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that sends 187 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
  • XC40 T5 models get an increase in power - 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque - from the same engine. All-wheel drive is standard, enhancing control in inclement conditions.
  • The standard Momentum level can go from zero to 60 mph in about 6.2 seconds with the T5. The 2020 Volvo XC40 may be a luxury vehicle, but it can still get the job done with a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds. 

Engine Options

The XC40 has a choice of powertrains to choose from based on which trim you love. The designated T4 is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 187 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque.  You can also go with the T5 and upgrade to 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.  The T5 comes with all-wheel-drive to give you the confidence you need to tackle any terrain around Pasadena.

Interior Space/Cargo

The CMA design of the XC40 means more cargo room. It has storage space for everything and solutions to keep you organized. It has an impressive 47.2 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear compartment. It also has a foldable, removable floor that is designed to keep things from shifting and moving around. It has a power-operated tailgate with an available hands-free option for easy loading and unloading.

The XC40 uses a smart design that includes foldout hooks for grocery bags, a wastebasket, and a compartment under the driver's seat that is big enough for a tablet. The door bind is large enough for a laptop, and there is a spot especially designed to charge your phone. Volvo designed the interior of the XC40 around people and the things they need to. As you expect from Volvo, it also has plenty of room for all passengers, comfortable seats, and it offers a smooth, quiet ride.

When you upgrade to the R-Design, you get additional interior features. Notable ones include automatic climate control, foldable floor hatches with a grocery bag holder, a panoramic roof with a power sunshade, and a rear scuff plate. Of course, the Inscription has even more exciting additional features such as leather upholstery, driftwood inlays, and a three-spoke leather steering wheel.

Advanced Safety Technology

The XC40 displays Volvo's legendary reputation for safety, with numerous standard and available driver-assistance technologies. Serving as your co-pilot, these features help you detect and respond to unexpected hazards and mitigate driving fatigue, for a safer and more enjoyable journey. The Momentum includes a capacitive occupant sensor, hill descent control, hill start assist, inflatable curtains, a rain sensor, and a whiplash protection system. The R-Design has additional safety features such as rear collision mitigation support, cross-traffic alert with auto brake, and a blind spot information system. Volvo makes it possible to ride with both style and safety in mind. 

  • Standard Volvo City Safety monitors the road ahead for other vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists. It warns you if a collision appears imminent and can automatically apply emergency braking force if the driver doesn't respond in time.
  • Standard Lane Keeping Aid works at highway speeds, monitoring for and warning of unintentional lane drifting. It also applies subtle corrective steering to keep the vehicle centered in its lane.
  • Available Blind Spot Information System (BLIS™ ) lets you know when it's safe to change lanes by providing a visual cue of vehicles in the XC40's blind spot. When backing out of a parking space or driveway, Cross Traffic Alert signals vehicles approaching from the left and right.
  • Available Adaptive Cruise Control supplements regular cruise control functionality by automatically maintaining a preset distance from leading cars. It slows and speeds up with the pace of traffic, so you don't need to keep switching between braking and accelerating.


You will stand out against the competition not only with the interior but the exterior, which catches people's attention at a moment's notice. Its bold and expressive SUV body design exudes its Scandinavian details that are irresistible.  You will be standing out against the competition with its aerodynamic styling, beautifully sculpted lines, and bold wheels.

There's room for five in the XC40 with comfortable seats in both rows. In the back, the cargo area is a spacious 20.7 cubic-feet, which can expand to accommodate 47.2 cubic-feet of gear with the back row folded down. A power-adjustable driver's seat with memory settings comes standard, and every trim also has leather upholstery. The Inscription adds an upscale feel with real wood trim, and it has a crystal gear shift knob. The Premium Package for the Momentum adds a removable folding floor, grocery bag holders, and a power-adjustable passenger seat. 

Technology in the XC40 starts with a 12.3-inch digital driver information display, a 9-inch vertically oriented touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. You also get two USB-A ports in the front and two USB-C ports in the back.

During summertime in Baytown, you can enjoy every adventure further with an open-air experience.  Just open the panoramic roof that lets you bring in natural light for a spacious cabin.  There is nothing better than getting in some extra sunshine and fresh air when the drives get to be long.

Trim Levels and Notable Features

Available features for the XC40 are organized across three nicely equipped trim levels:

  • Momentum: The base trim is anything but basic, offering numerous premium features as standard equipment.
