Volvo Car Malaysia Adds XC90 T5 to its Lineup
Volvo Car Malaysia, the premium car maker, today adds the XC90 T5, powered by Volvo’s award-winning Drive-E powertrain, that will complement its current 7-seater premium plug-in hybrid, the XC90 T8 Twin Engine Inscription and Inscription Plus.
The XC90 T5 is equipped with a 2-litre turbocharged engine that outputs 254 hp and 350 Nm of torque, paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The XC90 T5 records a 7.9 s acceleration (0- 100 km/h) and 7.9 litres of fuel consumed for every 100 km (NEDC, combined cycle).
The decision to add a new variant to the XC90 line-up comes after collecting valuable feedback from customers who want more trim level and powertrain choices for Volvo’s best-selling large SUV.
“As a human-centric car company, we are always developing products that suit the current needs of our customers,” said Lennart Stegland, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia.
Stegland adds that adding the XC90 T5 is only one part of the improvements rolled-out for the XC90 range; prospective customers will now get to choose an additional interior colour, Maroon Brown, and three new exterior colours, namely Chrystal White, Denim Blue and Maple Brown.
The XC90 T5 will be priced at RM373,888 (on-the-road, without insurance, inclusive of excise duty and sales tax) but despite the reduction, the XC90 T5 will maintain all the IntelliSafe systems available in the XC90 T8 Twin Engine.
These IntelliSafe systems include, among others, City Safety with Autobrake technology, that assists the driver in avoiding potential collisions. City Safety is the only system in the market to recognise pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals.
Another feature that was noted as a favourite amongst owners, Pilot Assist, Volvo’s semi-autonomous driving system which supports the driver with steering, acceleration, and braking will also be included in the XC90 T5.
The XC90 T5 is now available for order or viewing at all Volvo authorized dealers nationwide.
