Most people would dismiss an affordable Hyundai hatchback as dreary but our tester begs to differ.
An extremely cool new car, lots of information in short bits.
Where we went: If you’re new in town and need to make friends, drop everything you’re doing and get yourself a new Volvo XC40 right now. My word, this car attracts attention!
