Volvo’s award-winning premium SUV returns with new enhancements
The legendary Volvo XC90 is no stranger to the premium SUV segment, thanks to its class leading safety innovations, distinctive design cues and luxurious Scandinavian interior. This year, the XC90 range solidifies its unwavering reputation in the local market with the introduction of the newly-refined, XC90 T5 Executive.
The Executive version is especially designed with subtle aesthetic and sensory improvements, to please the more distinguished connoisseurs of the popular SUV range. Along with ergonomic plush leather seats, the XC90 T5 Executive comes with well-appointed wood inlays complementing the soft leather upholstery that lines the cabin, delivering an enhanced feeling of luxury and comfort.
As with all Volvo cars, it is equipped with the usual fare of “Swede” sensibilities like integrated booster cushions, ISO-fix for child seats and a grocery bag holder. The auditory experience is amplified with a twelve-speaker, premium sound, entertainment system which allows you to stream your favourite tunes via Bluetooth from your devices through a six-disc CD changer or an auxiliary port.
On the exterior, upgrades such as chrome mirror covers, LED driving lights, new front bumper bar and 19” Galateia aluminium rims, gives the XC90 T5 Executive that extra panache when cruising through city roads or roughing it out on country trails. The XC90 is available in four distinct colours – Ice White, Ember Black, Electric Silver and Twilight Bronze.
All of this form comes with a very functional 2.5 litre, turbocharged engine that churns a maximum power of 210hp at 5,000rpms and an array of performance improvements and driver support and safety systems such as Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC), Roll Stability Control (RSC) and Rollover Protection System (ROPS), WHIPS (Whiplash Protection System), SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) and IC (Inflatable Curtain). In short, the XC90 T5 Executive will get you where you need to go, safely.
The XC90 T5 Executive retails at RM368,888 (Peninsular Malaysia, on-the-road without insurance). Test drives of the XC90 T5 Exclusive are available at all authorised Volvo distributors.
