Welcome to the forum! Hopefully this means you'll be taking delivery in the next few weeks. Are you coming from another Volvo or new to the brand?

i bet that you're the type of person that might also like the BMW X2. Both seem to share similar driving characteristics and it can get even better if Polstar launches their own version, which they should.

Ok lovely people its been 6 days since we picked the xc40 up the boss loves it the only gripe she has is the lane assist motorways ok but even when your overtaking parked cars it comes on it can get dangerous so thats been turned of the opening of the boot you must have keys near it to work everytime will keep you posted i cant get near it to drive it yet she wont let me lol
Oh and she said weres me cd player to play me music it aint got one lol and its got adblue you can see that in settings
