Hello all :)

I'm in Malaysia, where XC40 is pretty expensive new (Volvos are pretty expensive in my currency, for any model anyway). Found a used one, 1.5 years old for about 20% less.

Obviously a question that does not have a final conclusive answer, but would you get an XC40 new or used? Why? (apart from the obvious $$ savings)

I'm thinking since it's petrol (R-Design), won't get the new Android Automotive infotainment, and is basically the same car new or used, I think I should go for the used. Given that Volvo is going full EV mode, why buy a new petrol car from Volvo which is already deprecated by definition.

Anyway would love to hear your thoughts!

I went with the used! I'm pretty happy about the savings :) In my country, XC40s are only sold at top tier R-design.

Surprises:
Advertised 7.7l/100km is a fluke. You need Eco mode to achieve this, and with 80% highway.
Unable to set any particular driving mode as default is another surprise.
Transmission wasn't as smooth as I'd hoped. But I come from a CVT.
