VOLVO XC40 Out on the road and powered here by the 1969cc D4 diesel unit, the XC40’s all wheel drive set up is a confidence builder once you’ve got used to the small amount of body roll that’s evident. With 400Nm of torque available there’s never a time when you haven’t got the grunt to pass quickly and safely. There are 46 variants to choose from, so finding the right one for you shouldn’t be an issue. So, a premium compact SUV at a premium compact SUV price. While the range starts at £27,905, you’ll have to find another 12k to get your hands on a comprehensively equipped First

Edition version. Quality doesn’t come cheap, but with that in mind, it’s money very well spent. FASTFACTS: Volvo XC40 D4 AWD First Edition (based on R- Design Pro with lots of extra kit); £39,905; 1969cc four cylinder diesel, 190hp, 400Nm; 8 speed auto; Top speed 130mph, 0-62mph 7.9secs; Fuel – urban 49.6, extra urban 61.4, combined 56.5; CO2 133g/km; will it fit the garage? 4425/2034/1658 (l/w/h);
