I have a late 2022 T4 XC40 Inscription purchased in Australia.

Like some of you I am noticing there are certain options and features missing that are available in other markets.

Two items missing are HUD and under bonnet heat and soundproofing and I'd be curious to hear from others if they have these features on the same year/model XC40. And, what else am I missing?

Sorry I don't have the same model (we have a Recharge Twin), but I do know that the under-hood sound insulation has been deleted on some of the Volvos. I know it's gone on the C40 (and yeah, you'd think it would not be required on the EV) and my dad just took delivery of a new 23 XC60 T8 in the USA and he noticed the bonnet insulation is missing as well. His 2021 XC60 T8 had the insulation. So I'd say it's an overall cost-reduction activity, and maybe they've made some improvements in the engines that meant the insulator pad wasn't offering any perceivable benefit? Regrding the HUD, again, it could be cost reduction or it could be due to the chip crisis?
