There are plenty of things car buyers in Manhattan should watch out for in the 2020 Volvo XC40. Among them is the roomy interior, and the long list of standard technologies that it offers.

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

Classified as one of the topnotch luxury subcompact SUVs in this generation of modern cars, the 2020 Volvo XC40 has those elements that make it rugged yet elegant to look at. The cabin is gifted with plenty of room to seat five people comfortably. It may be simple in terms of design, but it is still a stand out no matter what. It has the T-Tec upholstery, the brand's fusion of 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 is blessed to have the same reliable Sensus Connect infotainment system. This partners very well with a nine-inch vertical touch screen that can be easily handled through touch instructions. There is support for smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus a Wi-Fi hotspot provision. Safety features include the rearview camera, together with a list of other advanced driver aids. All its features like the 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 are nothing but reliable.

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

The Bottom Line

Showing a great appeal that easily attracts the eyes of car buyers out there, the 2020 Volvo XC40 knows how to exude class and sportiness in all levels. It has a long list of reliable technologies, with power that is just enough for daily travels.
