New engines for
Volvo S90 and V90
WITH diesel power being vilified by climate change groups Volvo has released a new petrol engine in its premium S90 and V90 model ranges.
Drivers who want an alternative to diesel can now opt for the T4 version of the S90 saloon and V90 estate.
They are powered by a Euro VI four-cylinder petrol engine and mated to an automatic gearbox as standard generating 190bhp and offering claimed fuel economy of 42.2mpg in the S90 and 40.9mpg in the V90.
Emissions are 155g/km and 160g/km respectively.
The T4 versions are available from entry-level Momentum to Inscription Pro form, and share the level of standard features as their existing diesel and petrol-electric hybrid siblings.
This includes Volvo's Sensus nine-inch touch screen control system, satellite navigation with real time traffic information, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection, pilot assist semi-autonomous drive technology, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control and leather-faced upholstery.
Depending on the trim level, T4 versions are available with wheels ranging from 18 to 21 inches.
The T4 engine joins the S90 and V90 ranges alongside the T6 in the V90 Cross Country, which was the first V90 variant to be offered as a pure petrol.
Volvo Car UK's head of business sales, Steve Beattie,said: "Petrol is becoming an increasingly popular choice with motorists, including business users. It's imperative we offer the range of engines that our customers demand, and we expect strong interest in the S90 and V90 T4."
The S90 and V90 T4 are available to order now and prices are S90 T4 P11D £34,500 and V90 T4 from £36,500.
