Volvo XC40 Coming This Fall With Semi-Autonomous Tech And More

Volvo has released yet more pieces of the XC40 puzzle, which is expected to debut in the coming weeks.

Unlike the XC60 and XC90, which ride on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), the Volvo XC40 is underpinned by a new platform, called Compact Modular Architecture (CMA).

It also includes a range of state-of-the-art technologies, which can already be found on its larger siblings, such as the semi-autonomous Pilot Assist, the latest City Safety, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, Cross Traffic Alert with automatic braking, and 360-degree camera system.

Moreover, the 2018 Volvo XC40 also benefits from the brand’s Sensus infotainment system. It features a large portrait-oriented touchscreen display, and allows users to access a host of functions and services.

“The XC40 is a car for a generation of consumers that expect full connectivity. All screens have been optimized for a safe, easy, and efficient interaction, to support active city driving,” said the Vice President of Vehicle Software & Electronics at Volvo Cars, Odgard Andersson.

An exact reveal date for the brand’s challenger to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q3, and BMW X1 has yet to be announced, but Volvo says that it will arrive this fall, and we might just catch a glimpse of it during the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, which starts on September 12.
