Volvo XC60 T5 Won By 12 Year Old Golfer
At the recent 40th RSGC Ladies Amateur Open Championship, held at the Royal Selangor Golf Club, Natasha Oon, a 12-year old golfer, became the envy of everyone when she won a brand new Volvo XC60 T5 worth RM288,888 by notching a hole-in-one on the first day of the Championship!A delighted Oon quipped, “I didn’t realise that I scored a hole-in-one. Honestly, I was just trying to do my best (in the Championship).”What happened next was nothing short of adorable – Oon brought her mother, Yenni Hasnawi, to the XC60 T5 on display and said, “this is the car that you will use to drive me to school every day.”
Oon’s hole-in-one is a remarkable feat that was only achieved at this particular Championship, a good 15 years ago. The hole-in-one prize was sponsored by Volvo Car Malaysia’s authorised dealer, Federal Auto Cars.
The XC60 T5 is powered by the 4-cylinder Drive-E engine which produces 245hp at 5,500rpm and a maximum torque 350Nm at 1,500-4,800rpm. Whilst the engine offers greater output than the previous generation, it still retains class-leading fuel consumption figures for petrol engines in the segment and improved CO2 emissions at a 157g/km.
Available from RM288,888, the XC60 T5 showcases a new hood shape and chrome bar grille which emphasizes the car’s width, together with prominent horizontal lines that will visually connect the car to the road.
