There are plenty of things to look forward to in the 2020 Volvo XC40. Topping the list of delightful finds is its roomy interior that can accommodate up to five passengers, regardless of shape and size. The 2019 Lexus UX, on the other hand, is a brand new model. It has a stylish interior, offering a smooth ride, and good gas mileage.

Design & Style

Combining ruggedness and modernity in the exterior, the 2020 Volvo XC40 is one handsome car to consider. It is tough, thanks to its solidly constructed body. Inside, taller passengers will love not just the ample legroom and headroom from the front to the rear seats, but also its good outward visibility. Cabin space has been well-designed using the T-Tec upholstery that combines synthetic leather bolsters with cloth cushion coverings.

Carrying up to five adults, supposedly, the 2019 UX only can carry up to four adults comfortably in its cabin. This car comes with leatherette upholstery and is somehow deprived of the high-quality materials that you are looking for in a luxury ride. Materials may look and feel soft to the touch, but the truth is it misses on some design elements that the XC40 offers.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 Volvo XC40, as usual, has the very dependable Sensus Connect infotainment system. This has been gifted with the nine-inch vertical touchscreen that looks like a tablet settled on the dash. Aside from supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, it also has a Wi-Fi hotspot provision as well. The standard rearview camera works with advanced driver aids. The long list 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.

Gifted with an infotainment system that is blessed with a seven-inch display screen called as the Lexus Remote Touch interface, the Lexus UX also carries six-speaker audio, satellite radio, three USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. This has Apple CarPlay but it does not support Android Auto. It takes time getting to know the entire interface, too. For your safety, you can count on traffic sign recognition, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and forward-collision warning.


Breathing up to 187 horsepower for its standard engine, and 248 horsepower for its other engine version, the 2020 XC40 easily impresses in terms of performance. Both numbers defeat the 169 horsepower result in the Lexus UX. You will find the car sluggish, never too fast the way you want to.

The Bottom Line

An excellent car with all the brilliant features, the 2019 Volvo XC40 definitely topples down the UX in a lot of aspects. You will not be dismayed if you decide to buy the XC40.
