How much does a pre-owned Volvo XC40 cost?
There are four primary parameters which play a crucial role in what a used Volvo XC40 costs: what year the car is from, fuel consumption of the model, how many miles the car has travelled and the trim level of the car.
On AutoUncle, the cheapest Volvo XC40 can be purchased for £27,000, while the most well-equipped model costs around £44,991.
Equipment for Volvo XC40
The latest generation of the Volvo XC40, named XC40, was introduced in 2018 and comes in the following equipment levels:
- Volvo XC40 R-Design (525 cars for sale)
- Volvo XC40 Inscription (521 cars)
- Volvo XC40 R-Design Pro (340 cars)
- Volvo XC40 Momentum (333 cars)
When looking for the best car deal for a used Volvo XC40, it is crucial only comparing the sale prices of cars with a similar engine and trim level. If not, you could come to a wrong conclusion on which car to purchase.
To be specific, the highest priced equipment variant, named R-Design Pro (Avg. price £38,440), is 15% more expensive than the cheapest variant, Momentum (Avg. price £30,391), so you can save an average of £8,049 by choosing the cheapest variant. Normally, the depreciation is worse for the expensive equipment variant when buying a new Volvo XC40, as dealerships don't value equipment at the same level when reselling the car.
The fuel efficiency is 15% better than the average for similar cars
The latest generation of the Volvo XC40 drives around 40 miles on the gallon. In comparison, an ordinary SUV drives 34 miles per gallon.

When thinking about which fuel type to buy, it's important to consider your driving habits. How many miles do you drive in a normal week? Do you take many short trips, or do you tend to drive long distances? If you use your car for short distances or in the city, we recommend hybrid, electric or petrol cars.
If you tend to drive longer distances, then diesel is probably the best fit for your needs. Note that in some countries, diesel engines with high emissions are no longer allowed to enter some cities.
