RESEARCH: 2022 Volvo XC40 Luxury SUV

2022 Volvo XC40: Elegant and Excellent Small Luxury SUV for Sale in Fairfax, VA, near Washington DC

The 2022 Volvo XC40 is a superb selection for Washington DC-area drivers who desire luxury and versatility but need something with a city-friendly physical footprint. It offers upscale accommodations, engaging driving dynamics, and a generous feature list, including a full suite of advanced driver-assistance technologies. And its conveniently compact dimensions make it well-suited to navigating crowded streets and parking lots. It's one of the most appealing options in the small luxury SUV segment, and you can find it here at Fairfax Volvo Cars.


The Volvo XC40 is spry and engaging, delivering balanced handling and responsive performance without compromising ride comfort. The base T4 powertrain is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (187 horsepower, 221 pound-feet of torque) paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. And for Fairfax drivers seeking even more internal motivation, the available T5 equips a higher-tuned turbo-four (248 hp, 258 lb-ft) and standard all-wheel drive.

XC40 Recharge

The Volvo XC40 is also the first model in Volvo's lineup to offer a pure-electric powertrain, as the automaker pushes towards its goal of a 50% hybrid/50% pure-electric lineup by 2025. The 2022 XC40 Recharge Twin is powered by an AWD dual-motor powertrain (402 hp, 487 lb-ft) that accelerates the small electric SUV from 0-60 mph in ~4.5 seconds. A 75-kWh battery provides an EPA-estimated range of 223 miles and can be charged from 20%-90% in eight to ten hours with a Level 2 charger, or as little as 40 minutes at a DC fast-charging station.

Accommodations and Versatility

The XC40 first-class interior exhibits Volvo's signature fusion of premium luxury, functional utility, and restrained Swedish minimalism, making it a desirable place to pass the miles during your Woodbridge, VA, commutes. The cabin is adorned with high-quality materials and attractive design elements, like vertical air vents, textured metallic trim pieces, and available driftwood accents. And passenger accommodations are comfortable, roomy, and versatile, with plush yet supportive seating, ample headroom and legroom, and handy small-item storage options. The XC40 also offers an array of comfort and convenience-enhancing amenities like leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a hands-free power liftgate, and keyless proximity entry.

The XC40's cargo area provides 21 cubic feet for your luggage or groceries. And when you need more space for your errands or adventures around Washington DC, you can expand the capacity to 57.5 cubic feet by folding the rear seats.



The Volvo XC40's large, vertically-oriented 9-inch display seamlessly integrates into the center stack, combining infotainment and cabin controls while maintaining the cabin's clean, refined layout. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto provide intuitive access to many useful smartphone apps and functions like hands-free calling and texts, streaming media, your music library, and maps and directions. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is also standard across the lineup, allowing you to customize the display to your preferences for easy viewing of infotainment and connectivity details, navigation, driver aid status, and more.


With Volvo, your safety is never an optional add-on. Like all models in the Volvo lineup, the 2022 XC40 comes standard with a complete roster of IntelliSafe driver-assistance technologies to help enhance driver awareness and hazard avoidance. All XC40 models include:
