The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Car Sifu -

THE Volvo S90 now comes with in a T5 op­tion to com­ple­ment the T8 Twin En­gine plug-in hy­brid.

The S90 T5 is priced at RM338,888 (on-the-road with­out in­sur­ance, in­clud­ing all ap­pli­ca­ble taxes) re­spec­tively and will be avail­able in six ex­te­rior colours of Crys­tal White, Mus­sel Blue, Lu­mi­nous Sand, Onyx Black, Bright Sil­ver, and Maple Brown.

Pow­ered by Volvo’s Drive-E drivetrain tech­nol­ogy, the 2.0-litre turbo en­gine out­puts 254hp and 350Nm of torque - en­abling it to reach 100kph in 6.8 sec­onds while con­sum­ing a fru­gal 7.0 litres of fuel for every 100km trav­elled (NEDC, com­bined cy­cle).

Like the S90 T8 Twin En­gine, the S90 T5 will be equipped with the full-suite of ac­tive safety and driver-as­sist sys­tems which in­cludes City Safety that comes with pedes­trian, cy­clist and large an­i­mal de­tec­tion, Run-off Road Mit­i­ga­tion with Road Edge De­tec­tion and Blind Sport In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (BLIS) with Steer As­sist.

The S90 T5 will also get Adap­tive Cruise Con­trol and Dis­tance Alert as well as the ad­vanced semi-au­ton­o­mous driv­ing fea­ture - Pilot As­sist which helps by giv­ing steer­ing in­puts, to keep the car prop­erly aligned within a road’s lane mark­ings, and op­er­ates up to high­way speeds of around 130kph.

On the ex­te­rior, the S90 T5 re­ceives new ver­ti­cal front grilles to dis­tin­guish it­self from the T8 Twin En­gine, round end-pipes with chrome sleeves and re­tains the 19-inch tyre pro­file - al­beit with a more ag­gres­sive five-triple spoke al­loy wheel de­sign in Matt Tech Black di­a­mond-cut fin­ish.

“We are of­fer­ing more vari­ants to match the cur­rent needs of our cus­tomers, and we do this whilst re­tain­ing ad­vanced safety sys­tems across our model range,” said Volvo Car Malaysia man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Len­nart Stegland.
