A combination of a nice interior and solid engine options, the 2020 Volvo XC40 is a ride that car buyers will truly be delighted to own. It has a long list of standard features plus offers roomy seating for its passengers.

Meanwhile, the 2019 Dodge Durango does not incorporate any major change. It remains to have a powerful engine lineup with plenty of cargo space inside. It has an intuitive infotainment system too.

Design & Style

An outstanding luxury subcompact SUV, the 2020 Volvo XC40 deserves all the praises that it gets with its rugged yet modern exterior. Inside it, you will find plenty of room to seat up to five adults without any problems at all. The outward seats also offer good outward visibility. With a sleek yet simple cabin design, you will definitely love this car even more. It has incorporated the T-Tec upholstery, which is the brand's own version of a combo between synthetic leather bolsters and cloth cushion coverings.

The 2019 Durango, like the XC40, can also seat five people. Cloth upholstery is standard for the base trim. When it comes to overall interior design, you will notice that it lacks the elegance of the XC40. There is also a cramped up headroom, making the ride frustrating for taller passengers and drivers.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 Volvo XC40 relies on the nine-inch vertical touch screen for the functionalities of its Sensus Connect infotainment system. This looks like a tablet that can be easily handled through touch instructions. Other standard tech features in the ride are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, as well as provision for a Wi-Fi hotspot. It comes standard with a rearview camera, together with a list of other advanced driver aids. This includes lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, traffic sign recognition, oncoming collision mitigation, and road departure mitigation.

The Durango, on the other hand, carries a seven-inch touch screen for its Uconnect infotainment. It also has a six-speaker stereo, two USB ports, voice controls, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and Bluetooth. It is disappointing to note that only a rearview comes as a standard safety feature for this car.


The XC40 has a standard engine that can generate 187 horsepower, and another variant that can score up to 248 horsepower. The Durango, meanwhile, comes in three powertrain choices, the most basic of which is the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 295 horsepower

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo XC40 proves to be one of the best cars in the market today. This luxury subcompact SUV knows how to define design and style without compromising comfort. It has an impressive set of technology and safety features as well. Do not forget too that it has two engine options, whose power depends on the trim level that you will purchase.
