My look at Volvo's first small(er) SUV, the XC40 was the most read yarn on just-auto this week. We've had Cross Country (the name is also applied to a train franchise here in the UK) Volvos for years, of course, including both the original XC90 and various beefed-up versions of the wagons the brand is also well known for (latest XC60 just coming out now), but this is the first venture into 40-sized kerb climbers and also the first of the new models on the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) architecture shared with parent Geely - the bigger brothers are on the SPA (Scalable Product Architecture) platform - which gives the economies of scale needed to make a buck in this segment.
