Volvo has quietly updated the XC40 crossover in the spirit of its coupe-like C40 cousin.

Photos of the restyled Volvo XC40 have surfaced on the Swedish brand’s European consumer websites.

The compact crossover Volvo XC40 has been produced since 2017 — now is the right time for a planned restyling, but it was so modest that Volvo did not even consider it necessary to issue a press release about it, and just without too much fuss launched the updated parkette for sale.

According to the company, in 2021, the XC40 was the second most popular Volvo model in the world after the medium-sized XC60 — 215,635 and 201,037 units were sold respectively.

Compared to 2020, demand for the Volvo XC40 increased by 8.4%, and Volvo sold a total of 698,693 passenger cars in 2021 (+5.6%).

In Russia last year the Volvo XC40 sold 1,836 units (+62.1%). (+62,1%).

The updates have brought Volvo XC40 front end in style of Volvo C40 Rechage electric crossover which debuted last year, namely tapered headlights and redesigned bumper with side sections stylized as Thor’s hammer (or simply the letter «T»).

The stern has been changed slightly LED headlights, and exhaust pipes of gasoline versions are hidden under the bumper’s skirt — Volvo is ashamed of them now.

In the cabin we did not find significant visual changes, but there is a fresh version of the multimedia system from Google and new trim materials.
