Volvo Car UK can now reveal prices for the
new entry level 2-litre petrol and diesel engines in the all-new Volvo
V70 premium estate and S80 executive saloon. Prices for the petrol
derivative will start from £24,995 in the Volvo V70 and £23,495 in the
S80, while the diesel powerplant is priced at £25,495 and £23,995 in the
Volvo V70 and S80 respectively.
Volvo has developed both engines with
low emissions and impressive fuel economy in mind to meet the needs of
the modern day motorist. The 2-litre common rail diesel generates 136PS
and 320Nm of torque and is equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter as
standard. CO2 figures stand at 157g/km on the Volvo V70 and
151g/km on the S80. The all-new Volvo V70 returns an impressive 47.9mpg
and the S80 49.6mpg on the combined cycle.
The 2-litre petrol engine generates
145PS and 190Nm of torque and returns 32.8mpg in the all-new Volvo V70
and 34.0mpg in the Volvo S80 on the combined cycle. CO2
emissions are 199g/km and 206g/km for the respective S80 and V70.
Available to order now ready for
January delivery, both four cylinder engines have been introduced to
widen the appeal of both cars and are expected to account for up to 60%
of all Volvo V70 and S80 UK sales.
Company motorists are a big target
market as the four cylinder engines will enable drivers to get into a
much larger more spacious car without the burden of inflated Benefit in
Kind tax bills or high fuel costs. A typical 40% tax payer
will pay just £158 per month for the 2.0D SE Volvo S80, falling to less
than £90 per month for a 22% tax payer. V70 SE 2.0D driver paying
22% tax will pay just £97 per month in tax, increasing to £177 for a 40%
“We have been working with Volvo in
Sweden to develop 2-litre engines for the V70 and S80 as they are such
an important benchmark for company car choice lists in the UK.
“We know from industry data that
2-litre diesel engines in particular account for around 60-80% of some
rival manufacturers’ executive car sales, so we are excited about the
new sales opportunities these engines will provide,” explained Nick
Connor, Volvo Car UK Sales Director.
