Volvo XC40 Recharge undergoes the most subtle facelift ever

With the images circulated, it won't be wrong to say Volvo believes they went with an appropriate approach, right from the beginning with the XC40 Recharge, as the facelift hardly appears to receive a revision. However, it's the keen eyes that will be able to note the changes made. 


  • What’s new on the Volvo XC40 Recharge Facelift?

    Volvo XC40 Recharge Facelift gets new headlights, updated front bumper, smoother front grille and a few tweaks inside the cabin.
  • Having made a global debut in October 2019, the biggest change in the fully electric crossover you would note is the new headlights. Though it doesn't stick out at the very first glance, it does when you take a closer look. Besides these, it even borrows the updated front bumper from the C40, smoother grille, and mildly revised lower sills and tail lamp clusters. The updates even include three alloy wheel designs.

    The gear lever and steering wheel also get a slight change with the use of different leather trim. At the same time, the German website of the company even facilitates an option to the customer to choose one of the following premium textile, tailored wool, 'Connect' textile and microtech or synthetic leather, and microtech and textile trim. However, all the provided options are available only in black, apart from the tailored wool that comes in light grey.
