Considering the huge number of cars they sell, it’s probably wrong to criticise German prestige brands for using the ‘Russian doll’ design mentality that leads to such a strong resemblance between models. Yet it’s still refreshing when a rival is a bit braver, as Volvo has been with its smallest SUV.

This XC40 may have similar front and rear lights to the company’s other models to ensure a family look, but the rest of the detailing and the overall proportions of the car are quite different; it certainly doesn't look as if Volvo has put the blueprints for the XC60 in a photocopier and set it to 75%.

Proof that the Swedes want to lead, not follow, can also be found in the fact that the XC40 was the first model in Volvo's range to be offered on a subscription scheme called Care by Volvo, with insurance, taxes, maintenance and roadside assistance all included in the monthly fee.

Meanwhile, and less of a surprise given the brand's history, Volvo claims that the XC40 is the safest car of its type, with a long list of high-tech driver aids borrowed from more expensive models in its range.

But, overall, is the XC40 better than the likes of the BMW X1 and Volkswagen Tiguan? Read on to find out.
