What Do You Wish Your XC40 Had?

Like the title says, what options do you wish your XC40 had that are not available? For me...

  • Ability to keep the current Drive Mode after it's turned off instead of always reverting back to "comfort" mode. Even though most cars also do not have this ability (MPG calculation reasons?), it would still be nice to have the option.
  • I like the sleek center tablet screen but wish the heating/cooling functions had their own separate knob/button control. It's rather distracting to have to take your eyes off the road to navigate to that screen to make changes.
  • Seat cooling! My wife and I loved these in our previous vehicle.
  • A Polestar version! Maybe someday...

Temperature you can easy change by voice command.. I'm cold +1 degrees I'm warm -1 degree or use say set temperature to.....


Indeed seat cooling and massage seat would have been great..

My big wish is that you could control the heating/cooling and configuration in the Volvo Car APP. See the temperature inside and then start the car and turn on the heated seats, steering wheel, defrost, heater etc.

I know now when you remote start the car; the last settings are remembered and happen, but I would like to be able to see current inside temperature and adjust them.

I can set the temp in mine with voice control. Temperature 72 (or whatever).

- Ability to close sunroof after engine shut off
- Speakers in front doors, especially for bass
- Voice control that actually worked
- Better brakes
- Transmission tuned to avoid overly harsh downshifts when only moderate throttle increase is applied
- Pilot Assist that operates for longer than a few seconds at a time
- AC power plug

Jezza,


It seems like most folks feel the same way you do. Maybe Volvo will take this into account when they start on the 2020 version.

Speak for yourself, please. I disagree with most of that list. I'm fine with the current iteration.
