Volvo has added new engine options to its S90 saloon, V90 wagon, and XC90 SUV in the UK. Guess what? The three models are now available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged T5 petrol engine. With this, the Swedish company wants to tell us that it will continue to focus on gasoline technology despite the powering up of the global EV market.
The three Volvos will now get the same package of a T5 putting out 250 HP and 350 Nm of torque and a 8-speed automatic transmission. You have to choose the trim levels above the Momentum and Momentum Pro to get the T5.
In other words, your options starts from the T5 R-Design which costs from £41,120 for the Volvo S90 sedan. With that money, you get a 42.8 mpg combined fuel economy and a 154g/km of CO2 emissions. In addition, the engine offers an acceleration from 0-62 mph in 6.8 seconds, and the top speed will reach 140 mph.
The price starts at £43,120 for the Volvo V90 T5 R-Design, which returns 41.5mpg fuel economy and emits 157g/km CO2. The wagon accelerates to 62 mph in 7 seconds. Meanwhile, the tougher Cross Country variant also gets the T5 engine and costs from £44,685. It’s less economical and slower (blame the four-wheel drive), returning 35.8 mpg (with 172g/km CO2 emissions) and going to 62 mph in 7.4 seconds.
As an exception, the four-wheel drive Volvo XC90 has the T5 engine option in every trim level. The base Momentum will set you back from £50,435 while the range-topping XC90 T5 Inscription Pro costs from £59,235. The SUV gets 35.8 mpg and hits 62 mph in 7.9 seconds. If you want a more powerful engine, the XC90 also has a T6 petrol option with 306 bhp power and 35 mpg fuel consumption.
