We just bought a 2023 XC40. We shopped long and hard for the perfect vehicle that could transport us and our dogs. We compete in Dog Agility events and needed a vehicle that could carry our luggage along with chairs, cooler, table, and other accouterments. Previously, we had an Infiniti QX60, but wanted a smaller vehicle.
Our dog kennel is a substantial Variocage unit. The size is Double medium. It fits perfectly in the XC40.
MIM Safe Variocage Double Crash Tested Dog Cage - features a movable center divider that is easily adjustable if one of the dogs needs more space...
Here are some pictures of the installed kennel and other belongings. The rear seats easily fold down for luggage, or up for passengers. The kennel will have to be removed (4 straps) to service the 48v battery or access the spare tire. Minor inconvenience, but not insurmountable.
