Volvo XC40, the confidence-inspiring SUV designed for the city.

Premium carmaker, Volvo, will bring a new standard of safety and user experience to the small SUV premium segment with the launch of the new Volvo XC40 this autumn.

“The XC40 is our first SUV in this rapidly growing segment and has a clear focus on navigating today’s hectic city environments. Building on Volvo’s heritage as the leader in safety, the new XC40 will offer the best possible safety standards combined with an easy-to-use interface and convenient connected services,” said Hkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive.

Developed to face the challenges of modern city life, the XC40 aims to make the daily urban commute less stressful and more enjoyable, as drivers in the segment can now rely on the award-winning safety, connectivity and infotainment technologies known from Volvos acclaimed new 90- and 60 Series cars.

As always, Volvos approach to safety and user experience builds on a philosophy it calls the Circle of Life: a constant improvement of standards and technologies, based on consumer insights and real life data. Safety is paramount to Volvo drivers and their families, and their neighbors in Hampton Bays and Eastport agree.

Safety and driver assistance features offered on the XC40 include Volvo's semi-autonomous Pilot Assist system, the latest generation of City Safety, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, Cross Traffic alert with auto brake and the 360 Camera that helps drivers maneuver their car into tight parking spaces. These and other technologies make the XC40 one of the best-equipped small premium SUVs available on Long Island, including Manorville, Mattituck and East Quogue.

The new XC40 is Volvos first car out on its new Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) and includes a range of ground-breaking technologies first introduced in its 90- and 60 Series siblings based on Volvos larger Scalable Product Architecture (SPA).

While the starting point for each new Volvo is the most advanced safety and driver assistance systems, the new XC40 also benefits from the high levels of safety and infotainment found in its larger stablemates.

“We built a confident, easy-to-use and convenient everyday user experience based on real-life interaction and research, starting from our foundation of leading safety. The XC40 is a car for a generation of consumers that expect full connectivity. All screens have been optimised for a safe, easy and efficient interaction, to support active city driving,” said Dgrd Andersson, Vice President Vehicle Software & Electronics at Volvo Cars.

“Like the larger XC60 and XC90 SUVs, the XC40 features Volvo’s connected Sensus infotainment system, centred around the now familiar large, portrait-oriented touchscreen. Easy to use and intuitive, the Sensus interface allows drivers to access a host of functions and services,” concluded Dgrd Andersson.

The new XC40 SUV is available for purchase or lease at Eagle Volvo in Riverhead, NY. Schedule a test drive now. Call 888-477-7114
