Volvo XC60 Now With 2-liter Turbo and 2-wheel drive
Volvo Car Malaysia has introduced the only locally assembled luxury 5-seater SUV at a selling price of just RM281,950.00(OTR, without insurance). Assembled at Volvo’s plant in Shah Alam, the XC60 2.0 Turbo Powershift is Volvo’s safest and most stunning car ever, the award-winning crossover XC60 is considered a ‘Perfect 10’ by Volvo themselves, and promises to be another smash hit, like the fully-imported XC60 T6 variant, which was completely sold out.
“Worldwide, we had overwhelming response to the XC60, and it was no different in Malaysia,” said Volvo Car Malaysia President Mr Goran Larsson. “We expect an even better response to the XC60 2.0 Turbo Powershift, which is now the only one in its class to be locally-assembled.”The locally-assembled XC60 boasts a six-speed, dual-clutch, four-cylinder 2.0T GTDi (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) engine, which produces a generous 203 hp with 300 Nm of torque available from 1750 rpm.
Safety at its best
The XC60 contains cutting-edge safety features that make this Volvo a must-have for those looking for a crossover SUV that provides the safest ride in town.
The XC60’s safety features include:
City Safety – a world’s first safety technology that helps avoid low-speed collisions by automatically slowing or stopping the XC60. Standard on the
XC60, City Safety automatically brakes the car if the driver fails to
react in time when the vehicle ahead slows, stops or if the XC60 driver is
driving too fast towards a stationary object. The system lessens or even
avoids low-speed rear-end impacts at speeds up to 30 km/h.
Collision Warning with Auto Break (CWAB) – If the XC60 approaches another vehicle from behind and the SUV’s driver does not react, the system alerts the
driver with audible and visual signals. If the risk of a collision
continues to increase despite the warning, the brake support system is
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) – Activates at speeds above 30 km/h to automatically adjust the car’s distance to vehicles ahead. ACC is adjustable to five
different time intervals to the vehicle ahead.
Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) – helps reduce the risk of skidding by cutting the engine’s torque when necessary and applying braking power.
The function has been further developed in the XC60 to register the car’s
roll rate as well.
Roll Stability Control (RSC) and Roll-Over Protection System – RSC is an active function that helps stabilise the car and reduces the risk of rolling over in an
If a rollover accident occurs, ROPS helps to
protect the passengers.
