From the Volvo XC60, to the all-new S60 sedan and now the new V60 Sportswagon.
Volvo Car Malaysia introduces the all-new V60 in 2 locally assembled variants, namely the T4 and the T5, which are priced at RM230,000 (T4) and RM269,000 (T5), both prices on-the-road, without insurance.
Both the T4 and T5 feature a Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection (GTDi) engine which represents Volvo’s very latest direct injection technology. The GTDi was developed to offer really low fuel consumption without compromising on performance or driving pleasure.
The T5 is a 2.0-litre petrol engine which pumps out a blistering 240 hp and 320 Nm of torque, available from 1800 to 5000 revs a minute, taking you from 0-100 km/h in 7.7 seconds flat, and pushes you to a top speed of 230km/h.
The new T4 is a 1.6-litre, 180 hp petrol engine, delivering a massive torque of 240 Nm from just 1600 and all the way up to 5000 revs a minute. An on-demand overboost function further increases torque to a massive 270Nm. And with its fuel efficient dual-clutch Powershift transmission, the result is excellent pulling power across the entire speed range, providing a particularly comfortable driving experience yet consuming only 7.5 litres per 100km for a combined driving cycle in cities and highways.
“This puts the T4 among the most powerful 1.6-litre engines in Malaysia currently,” said Mr. Peter Johnson, Volvo Car’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Asia Region, adding that "small, high-performance GTDi engines combined with our fuel efficient dual-clutch Powershift transmission are our bid to get more energy and efficiency out of smaller engines."
Five colours available for both variants of Volvo V60 are the Electric Silver, Ember Black, Ice White, Seashell and Flamenco Red.
What makes the V60 T5 more distinctive? The new V60 T5 comes with the groundbreaking and world leading technology such as Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake and Pedestrian Detection, and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Queue Assist and Distance Alert, which automatically maintains a set gap to the vehicle in front. What is new is that the Adaptive Cruise Control operates at speeds below 30 km/h, all the way down to standstill.
Last of all, standard with every Volvo in Malaysia, the all-new V60 includes 3-year warranty and 3 years complimentary Volvo On-Call.
