Volvo S90 T5
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.
