Updated Volvo XC90 features mild-hybrid engines and new prices

6

New versions of the Volvo XC90 are now available to order, featuring a new mild-hybrid diesel engine.

It will be the first to model to use Volvo’s advanced kinetic energy-recovery braking system, which is coupled with its existing internal combustion engines to create a new integrated electrified powertrain, under its new ‘B’ badge.  

The new electrified powertrain promises drivers up to 15% fuel savings and emission reductions in real-world driving. 

The B5 also gets an updated automatic transmission, which brings improved fuel efficiency and superior gearshift quality. Acceleration from a standstill is sharper, too, thanks to a greater torque capacity in the lower gears. The B5 also breaks new ground for Volvo by using a brake-by-wire system.

Volvo’s existing T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid electrified option will remain available on the new XC90, with a bigger battery that provides a longer zero-emission range of almost 29 miles.

On the outside, the refreshed XC90 offers subtle upgrades with new wheels, exterior colours and grille.

Active safety technology now offers drivers help with steering on both the City Safety and the Blind Spot Information System.  

The Oncoming Lane Mitigation system first introduced on the XC60 is now also available on the XC90, while the Cross Traffic Alert technology now also offers autobrake.

The new XC90 range is available in Momentum, R-Design and Inscription versions – each also available in more highly specified ‘Pro’ form. There are four powertrains: the new 235hp B5 mild-hybrid diesel; 250hp T5 and 310hp T6 petrols; and the 390hp T8 Twin Engine petrol-electric plug-in hybrid. Every XC90 comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Prices start at £52,235 for the T5 Momentum and £53,285 for the new B5 engine.
