Volvo XC90 2020 model arrives in Malaysia from RM373,888
YES, the best seller is back, and its better in all ways over the rivals!
Now upgraded in more ways than you can imagine and with added safety and connectivity, this recharged 2020 Volvo XC90 comes after the 5-year global success of the current Volvo XC90 which has been a luxury SUV best seller in all mature markets.
Volvo Cars Malaysia has even added a new selection of colours to tickle premium Malaysian customers and the hybrid technology has been upgraded to give an even better all electric driving range when fully charged (up to 50km in pure EV mode is now possible).
It must be mentioned that the upgraded safety systems in this new Volvo XC90 gives its immediate price point rivals a headache as they will find if difficult to match the added safety for this asking price.
In terms of active safety technology, the 2020 model XC90 now offers drivers help with steering on both the City Safety and the Blind Spot Information System. City Safety with Autobrake is still the only system on the market to recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals.
The Oncoming Lane Mitigation system first introduced on the XC60 is now also available on XC90, while the Cross Traffic Alert technology now also offers autobrake.
All this, together with the safety cage that forms the core of the passive safety technology, makes the Volvo XC90 one of the safest cars on the road and underlines Volvo Cars’ unwavering commitment to developing the safest cars possible.
Visit one of the many Volvo dealers around Malaysia this weekend and take a 2020 Volvo XC90 for a test drive and then right after that test drive take a rival model for a test drive to truly appreciate what a great new premium SUV has been delivered by Volvo engineers.
Press RELEASE: Volvo Car Malaysia has announced that the refreshed version of its best-selling XC90 large SUV is available in Malaysia for viewing from November onwards. The Volvo XC90 is the company’s top-of-the-line flagship, that marks the next step in the company’s ambitious electrification strategy.
The refreshed XC90 offers subtle upgrades to the original award-winning exterior design, such as new wheels, exterior colours and a modern new grill, while the superlative and award-winning interior design remains in place.
For the T8 models, the battery capacity has been improved from 10.4kW to 11.6kWh, thus improving the pure electric driving range to up to 50km. On top of that, it is equipped with the redesigned Orrefors crystal electronic gearshift lever.
The T5 model sees the inclusion of third-row air conditioning with c-pillar vents, road sign information system (RSI) as well as 4-zone electronic climate control with cooled glove box which previously only available for the T8 model.
Based on Volvo’s own, in-house developed platform, powertrain and safety technology, the 2015 XC90 marked the start of Volvo Car’s transformation. It introduced the new face of the Volvo brand characterised by the Thor’s Hammer headlights, while introducing its new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform.
The world-first technologies and innovations that were launched on Volvo’s other 90 and 60 Series models between 2015 and 2019 have found their way into the XC90 over the intervening years. As a result, Volvo’s top-of-the-line SUV has become more advanced since its introduction, clocking up over 320,000 units sold worldwide – and counting.
In terms of active safety technology, the XC90 now offers drivers help with steering on both the City Safety and the Blind Spot Information System. City Safety with Autobrake is still the only system on the market to recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals. The Oncoming Lane Mitigation system first introduced on the XC60 is now available on XC90, while the Cross Traffic Alert technology is now equipped with autobrake.
All this, combined with the safety cage that forms the core of the passive safety technology, makes the XC90 one of the safest cars on the road and underlines Volvo Car’s unwavering commitment to developing the safest cars possible.
The fully updated Sensus infotainment system which is unique to Volvo has been a standard feature and compatible with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto as well as being integrated with the Spotify Music streaming service.
The refreshed Volvo XC90 will be priced starting from RM 373,888 (on-the-road, without insurance, inclusive of excise duty and sales tax) and is available for viewing at all authorised Volvo dealers nationwide.
Customers will have the option to choose between five distinct colours: Crystal White Pearl, Denim Blue Metallic, Onyx Black Metallic, Pebble Grey Metallic, and Thunder Grey Metallic
