Volvo launch new 1.6 litre petrol engines

Volvo's engine range is launching two new four-cylinder 1.6-litre petrol engines, T3 and T4, featuring the very latest direct injection technology. The GTDi (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) concept was developed to offer improved fuel consumption without compromising on performance. The 1.6 GTDi T3 features 150 PS while the T4 offers 180 PS and both will be available in the all-new Volvo S60 and V60 in late 2010.

The 180 PS T4 engine delivers maximum torque of 240 Nm from just 1600 rpm all the way up to 5000 rpm.

"Small, high-performance GTDi engines are a part of our bid to get more energy out of smaller engines" says Magnus Jonsson, senior vice president product development at Volvo Cars.
