The Volvo S80 and V70 are now available also with a five-cylinder, turbocharged 2.5-litre Flexifuel engine having a power output of 200 hp plus 300 Nm of torque. Fuel consumption (EU mixed) for the all-new 2.5-litre Flexifuel variant is 9.2 l/100 km (V70 and S80) having the manual gearbox plus 10.2 l/100 km (V70) , 10.1 l/100 km (S80) - automatic gearbox.
The Flexifuel versions of the Volvo S40, V50 plus C30 have a 1.8-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine, 1.8F, which makes 125 hp (92 kW), 165 Nm of torque."The 2.5-litre version adds spice to our environmental offer. It emphasises our aim to offer our buyers the possibility of combining performance with environmental responsibility. With 200 hp on tap, the driver gets a dynamic drive without compromising fuel economy," says Fredrik Arp, the President and CEO at Volvo Car Corporation.
"200 horsepower is the ideal power level for this engine. This makes it possible for the car owner to cover the daily driving without the need for a richer air/fuel mix than the ideal value, which is 14,7:1. We think that our buyers will appreciate that we are focusing on a competitive fuel consumption," says Magnus Jonsson, the Senior Vice President, Research & Development - Volvo Cars.
"Another new development is that the 2.5FT is available with both a manual and an automatic gearbox. This is further proof of our ambition to offer environmental alternatives in our larger models without compromising comfort or driving pleasure," continues Magnus Jonsson.
