New Volvo XC90 Quotes

Performance

The Volvo XC90 is a superb long distance cruiser that soaks up uneven surfaces and potholes with ease, add to that the low noise levels and strong brakes to ensure good stopping performance; the XC90 is a superb car. The XC90 offers 163bhp 2.4-litre five-cylinder turbodiesel engine that has been the mainstay of XC sales ever since. It was uprated in 2005 to 185bhp and this engine then met the EU4 emissions regulations. Coupled to a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox, the D5 was then reworked in late 2010 to give 200bhp and 34.4mpg average economy.

Running Costs

For a car of this size, the mpg across all engines along the XC90 range is fairly impressive – with the sheer power of this cruiser easily negating issues with running costs. The four-wheel-drive system and six-speed automatic gearbox both increase the 2.4-litre D5 diesel engine's fuel consumption. Official figures of 34mpg and 219g/km CO2 emissions, means that the XC90 is a powerful car that offers more in terms of its ability. Although the running costs could be considered steep, this is a car that more than makes up for its high price.
