Volvo Car USA Introduces Refreshed 2023 XC40 and XC40 Recharge


Volvo Car USA is introducing a range of updates to its popular compact luxury SUV, the XC40. Both the all-electric XC40 Recharge model and the XC40 receive fresh styling updates, and the XC40 moves to all mild-hybrid powertrain options and gains the new Google built-in infotainment system.

When Volvo Cars first presented the XC40 in 2017, it was a fresh, creative and distinctive addition to the Volvo lineup. Five years later, it is an award-winning staple in its portfolio and one of the car maker’s constant top sellers.

Volvo Cars designers have now given the XC40 line-up a refresh to reinforce its cutting-edge design and modern statement. A new front bumper and a frameless grille plate keep the all-electric XC40 Recharge visually in sync with the Volvo C40 Recharge, aligning the two cars that symbolise Volvo Cars’ electrification journey. The signature Thor’s Hammer headlights take a new shape and offer state-of-the-art pixel LED light technology.

Additionally, customers will receive premium leather-free upholstery options in the pure electric XC40 Recharge and new exterior colours and wheels, offering further possibilities for personalisation.

“As we move towards becoming a fully electric company, our design language follows,” said Robin Page, head of design at Volvo Cars. “With the refreshed fully electric XC40, we continue to evolve its instantly recognisable design, creating a more modern face with a sleeker front and an even more integrated grille.”

Google built-in – already standard on the XC40 Recharge—rolls out to the entire XC40 lineup for the model year 2023. As part of the Google ecosystem, the XC40 now offers a seamless transition between digital life at home and on the phone, bringing customers’ digital lives and much greater personalisation directly into their cars. With Google Maps as the native navigation system, Google Assistant for voice control and the Google Play store for additional apps, every Volvo car is equipped with a best-in-class digital experience.

The 2023 Volvo XC40 lineup is in production and will begin arriving in retailers this summer.
