Received my car today. Pleased with the drive. Very quiet. Struggling to register with the VOC app, so contacted dealer to sort out and not able to get on the internet ( Vodafone sim card installed) and spotify was working initially but for some reason won't work now.
If anyone can help please direct me to the right feed. Thanks

BTW as you can see no bin where the space is beside the cup holder. I purchased the convenience pack but the boot storage doesn't fold up as in the normal combustion engines.

Lovely thing, @pasti3008!
How about power/torque and fuel consumption?

Can't wait to get mine :!:

Very nice, & great pictures!
I collect my T4 inscription Pro in around 2 weeks. One concern (Please tell me if I'm been anal) How are the leather seats for creases. I've seen some really poor examples in the Volvo showroom. My xc60 which I've just sold had perfect seats after 85k. I'm not total convinced by the XC40 seat quality. Would love to hear owners views, please.

Hello MoosePT and Mark123!
I'm happy so far. The steering is really light, it's very responsive when you literally touch the accelerator, it feels very powerful because of the twin engine.
I'm not so au fait with car terms, but this is my initial impression of the car.

Too early to comment on fuel consumption as all I have done today is a quick trip to the shops and the school run, <16 miles. I do more city driving so hoping that I will save on petrol and help to reduce my carbon footprint!

With regards to the seats, I think someone commented that the seats get wrinkly over time and require some leather cleaning solution to help retain the moisture.

What I have noticed is an occasional hissing sound, too early to say what that relates to and when turning the steering wheel for sharp turns, the engine makes a creaking sound, it might be because it's new and I will keep an eye on it.

Hi Pasti3008, I have sent you a personal message which I don't think you have read as yet.
