The 2019 XC40 is one of the all-new models from the carmaker. Its launched pave the way for more options for car buyers in Manhattan who are looking for luxury subcompact SUVs. Its polished design is backed up by a long list of safety features as well.

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

The 2019 Volvo XC40 knows how to fuse elements of sportiness with details of modernity. It has been gifted with 18-inch wheels for a more athletic look. There is also a roof rail to match its ruggedness. Modern components listed for this car are its LED headlights, and no less than premium quality materials used for its interior construction.

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 2019 Volvo XC40 is always a favorite when it comes to technologies. Come to think of its reliably impressive infotainment display for its Sensus interface. This one integrates support both for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It has an eight-speaker stereo, and a Bluetooth interface too. A rearview camera, traffic sign recognition, oncoming lane mitigation, road departure mitigation, rear collision warning, and Volvo's City Safety are among its standard driver aids.

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.


When it comes to the 2019 Volvo XC40, there are two engine variations to choose from. One is the turbo four-cylinder engine setup resulting in 187 horsepower. The next one is the turbo-four that results in 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. Fuel efficiency wise, the XC40 delivers better results with 23mpg for city driving (the Durango reaches 19mpg only) and 33mpg for highway driving (the Durango has 26mpg at the most).

The Bottom Line

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