I have a 2020 XC40, the manual lists English UK as an option for the voice control.
However there is no option for this when I triy to switch from US English on the control panel display.
Is there a way to change that annoying US accented voice control?

At least you still have the English language available. In my case, I don't even have the Portuguese language available, and Volvo will not make any updates to reverse the situation.

I remember when German cars bought in the US had buttons and knobs labeled in German. That was decades ago, but how spoiled we English speakers have become that we must have our own accent in our cars :) I get it though. I tried setting my Siri to English English for a day and that’s all it lasted.

I see your point about variations on English, but it is actually more than an accent. The whole interface adjusts to have what I see as “correct” spellings. The voice in the car is completely separate. Still we definitely also set the voice to british because why not have your car match the stereotypical british chauffer.
