New models - Volvo - XC90 - 3.2

New entry XC90

Non-turbo: But six-cylinder XC90 is quicker off the mark.

Volvo increases the power, but not the price, of its XC90 SUV - via a 3.2-litre six

21 Mar 2007

VOLVO Car Australia has introduced a 3.2-litre straight-six petrol engine in its XC90 SUV, replacing the 2.5-litre inline-five turbo but maintaining a sub-$70,000 starting price and an equivalent features level.

Pricing remains at $69,950 for the 3.2, which delivers 175kW and 320Nm – 21kW more power but no gain in torque over the 2.5T.

The engine is paired with a new six-speed automatic transmission, and Volvo claims 0-100km/h acceleration improves from 9.9 seconds in the turbocharged five to 9.5 in the natural-breathing six.

Fuel consumption is also said to fall from 12.0L/100km to 11.8L/100km.

“The XC90 3.2 offers significant improvements, and considering the sub-$70 grand price, we certainly expect it to capture sales and play a large part in the continuing positive transformation of the Volvo brand,” said Volvo Car Australia managing director Alan Desselss.

Meanwhile, VCA is also now offering an Executive trim level across the XC90 range, which for $6000 over the recommend retail price includes soft-leather upholstery (in all three rows), thick-pile carpeting, a redwood steering wheel, walnut panel inlays, chrome finishing on the wing mirrors and C-pillars, watch-dial instrumentation, 19-inch “Galateia” alloy wheels, colour-co-ordinated wheelarch extensions, a large single oval exhaust outlet (which encases both exhaust pipes), and metallic paint.
