The wife wants a XC40 T5. We test drove a P8 and T5. She likes them both, but the range anxiety has her going for the gas car. Unfortunately all the Blue T5s in the ATL lack the HK audio and nothing inbound that matches. Both cars we test drove have the HK, but I realized once we left the dealer none of the cars we are interested in have the HK audio. I hate to drag back to dealer to find one to listen to, how good or bad is the standard audio. The car will be used primarily by my wife, but I will drive it occasionally, she does not care, but I appreciate decent audio.

This has been discussed at length in another thread. do a search for it. I have the HK and honestly it's good but not great. I've come to the conclusion the lack of speakers in the front door are a gap no matter what, and the "air" subwoofer in front instead of behind you just doesn't cut it. I got a loaner with the standard system and it seemed fine compared to the HK. A big selling point for the HK systems seems to be the surround setting. Most of the time, though, I don't even use that because it lowers the volume of sound directed at me in the driver's seat. Overall, my advice is not to choose an XC40 based on the audio, especially if the primary driver won't notice the difference.
