The exterior styling of the new concept is bold, where the front fascia design seems to be carried from the XC90. The front gets the 'Thor’s Hammer headlights' with bold grille, while to the side, it gets angular crease with conventional rear door handles, overall it's a sporty, sleek, crossover look, especially with the contrasting black roof. Built on the CMA platform, the car will get front and all-wheel-drive system that means it will allow its parent company, Geely to incorporate cheap components, to compete with its rival in the premium segment.

Under the hood, the Volvo 40.1 draws its power from a combined system with a three-cylinder petrol turbo engine working with an electric motor. The XC40 concept features a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, described as T5 Twin Engine, the petrol unit is capable to deliver 180bhp and the electric motor adds 74bhp, which is compact 9.7kWh battery pack housed in the centre of the car. The transmission duties are done by a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, which is clever enough connected to the electric motor that will add a boost while the engine drive the other.

The production guise of the XC40 will most likely to compete with the likes of the Mercedes GLA, Audi Q3 and BMW X1.
