Volvo adds the powerful and efficient T5 engine to the 90-series

Volvo is introducing its T5 turbocharged petrol engine across its 90-series range in the UK, adding the T5 powertrain to the S90 saloon, V90 estate, V90 Cross Country and XC90 SUV.

Delivering 254PS and 350Nm of torque, the T5 has well-established credentials as a strong yet refined performer that delivers impressive fuel economy and emissions. It is matched as standard to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

This engine is a member of the newest Volvo Drive-E engines, and is further evidence of Volvo’s continued focus on petrol engine technology. The advanced 2.0-litre, four-cylinder unit is both compact and lightweight, with aluminium and aluminium alloy extensively used in its construction.

In the S90 saloon, the new T5 is available in all model grades apart from the entry-level Momentum and the Momentum Pro. Fuel economy of 42.8mpg on the combined cycle is respectable for a car with such power. 0-62mph takes just 6.8 seconds and the top speed is 140mph.

The V90 mirrors its sister saloon in terms of the availability of the T5 within the range, with the addition of the Cross Country all-road estate models. Fuel efficiency figures are from 41.5mpg in the standard V90, and from 38.2mpg with all-wheel drive in the Cross Country. Performance is equally impressive, with 0-62mph in just 7.0 seconds in the V90 and 7.4 seconds in the V90 Cross Country.

Customers for the XC90 SUV can specify the T5 with all-wheel drive in all model grades, starting with the Momentum. The XC90 T5 AWD achieves official combined cycle figures from 35.8mpg, while the 0-62mph time of 7.9 seconds is impressive in such a large car.

Jon Wakefield, Managing Director of Volvo Car UK, said: “The T5 petrol engine is a superb addition to the S90, V90 and XC90 ranges. This cutting-edge engine brings increased choice for our customers, and offers strong performance with excellent efficiency and refinement. We’re sure it’ll be a hit with retail and business users alike.
