I'm pretty sure that I will like it anyway, and if I do my estimated delivery date is early October as it stands.
Thank you for your much appreciated input.

Given the immense popularity of the XC40, I am starting to be a bit uncomfortable just sitting it out on the benches.

I will try to come up with an approach similar to yours with my dealer.

If, in the meantime, you get yours would you be so kind as to post here your impressions?

Thanks.

The V40 is essentially a Ford Focus in a party frock while the XC40 is a completely new Volvo (Geely) platform. Keeping the two together is only causing confusion which will get worse when the replacement for the V40 is announced.

It is based on the same platform but anyone who has driven both can attest to them being very different cars to drive. Not to mention the better crash test ratings for the V40. Anyway I agree, this is not the place to discuss XC40s.
