T5 FE in Osmium Grey with black interior and standard 19 inch wheels.
I think the FE is good value if you try adding up price of all the standard kit, and it just fits under the £40,000 VED trap at present.
I just ordered the D4 FE in Bright silver with Lava orange interior and the 20 inch wheels.

I would of ordered the T5 but the list price is just over £40,000 so went with the D4 to avoid the tax duty trap of £310 extra a year.

Do you think the T5 would avoid it as well as if so would rather change from D4 to T5?

You probably need to read this thread... and then change your order as appropriate?

As you will see from the thread that Boomer refers to, I too thought the T5 would attract the extra road tax for the first 5 years, but that isn't the case, the taxable value is actually below £40,000.

That’s great news. I also thought we would be paying the high rate of tax.

Just ordered T5 FE in white/charcoal/20 inch wheels seen it at the pre launch events car is amazing lava interior looks great as well but was not sure what would look like after a few years use so went for charcoal interior instead. Ordered through broker as local dealers unhelpful and not willing to match prices their loss. Can’t wait for delivery

Ordered my first ever Volvo at the weekend before the XC40 launch last night. FE D4 in white with all the fitted extras. Delivery in May but not finalised yet. Bit of a change from Audi but the new Volvo cars are great. Have never ordered a car without a test drive. However have not been so excited about a new car before.

I ordered an XC60 R-Design last weekend but due to the MY19 changes, the price has increased and current dealership can only get MY19 (no tagged MY18.5). I don't want to pay more for the spec change which includes options I'd discounted.

I'm going over to the dealership today to see what they can do and look at the XC40 FE. Very tempted to swap to be honest, given the spec is way above what I could afford on the XC60. Been advised they have some available for order although whether that has changed since last night remains to be seen.

Failing that, I think I've managed to secure an XC60 in MY18.5 spec at a price matched quote, but very interested to see the XC40 in the 'flesh' first.

I'm similar to the poster above though - first volvo and coming from a long line of Audi's although currently have a Golf GTE

I too have ordered one today, though not very hopeful that I'll get it!

I've ordered an MY2019 First Edition, T5, in White, with Lava Interior.

I'll find out on Monday or Tuesday if I've been successful, but as I said, not very hopeful as they seem to be running out of T5s.
