Volvo adds new powertrains

2015 will see the addition of a full range of high and low power 4-cylinder variants for Volvo.

One of the Model Year highlights is the addition of class-leading petrol and diesel engines to the XC90 as a part of the Drive-E powertrain roll-out. The 190 hp diesel comes in at just 139 g/km and a 5.3 l/100km, while the 254 hp petrol engine delivers 7.5 l/100km and 174 g/km.

Volvo Cars continues to deliver significant steps towards zero emissions with the introduction of some of the best performing powertrains in the industry.

The V40 D2 with a manual transmission starts at just 82 g/km, that exceeds most taxation band requirements across Europe. The S60 D2 manual, which leads in its class, starts at only 96 g/km. The same powertrain on a V60 starts at a highly competitive 98 g/km. Further improvements in fuel consumption and lowered emission levels can also be seen in the XC60 D4 AWD which has seen a 12 per cent reduction in emissions, and the D5 2.4 AWD automatic which is down to just 149 g/km.
