Volvo Cars' has introduced a new range of more fuel efficient six-cylinder petrol engines across the whole range of 2011 models.
"The new engines offer greater driving pleasure across the range. What is more, our strong drive to reduce carbon dioxide emissions means that fuel consumption has been cut as well," says Roula Beiruty, Marketing Manager for Volvo Cars Middle East.
Sharper T6 and 3.2-litre naturally aspirated engine
Volvo S80, V70 and XC60 also get upgraded petrol engines:
The six-cylinder, turbocharged T6 has a displacement of 3.0 liters and it now offers even sharper performance, thanks mainly to a reduction in internal friction. As in the all-new S60, it now offers 304 hp and no less than 440 Nm of torque. Maximum torque is achieved between 2100 and 4200 revs. This results in rapid acceleration and smooth driving properties. All-Wheel Drive is fitted as standard.
The six-cylinder 3.2-litre naturally aspirated engine has also been upgraded and features an improved crankshaft and less internal friction. It now offers 243 hp and maximum torque is 320 Nm. In order to meet US legislative requirements, there is also a PZEV (Partial Zero Emission Vehicle) variant that produces 231 hp and 300 Nm.
Fuel consumption (EU Combined, preliminary figures) and CO2 emissions:
