The U.S. EPA has released the official fuel economy figures for the Volvo XC40. The new crossover has been certified with some respectable stats, including a 31 mpg highway rating for the XC40 T5 AWD.
In addition, the T5 AWD is rated at 23 mpg city, giving it a combined rating of 26 mpg. For comparison sake, this slots the XC40 in parallel with the Mercedes-Benz GLA250 4MATIC, but the Volvo is offering up 40 more horsepower.
The XC40 is besting most of its direct competitors when it comes to fuel sipping. A comparable BMW X1 and Audi Q3 offer slightly less miles per gallon. Much like the GLA, both other German competitors are offering less power output than the XC40.
