The highly anticipated all new XC90 from
Volvo is now here in India. The all new Volvo XC90 will be available in the
Diesel D5 engine with Momentum Luxury and Inscription Luxury variants priced at
Rs. 77.9lakh and Rs. 64.9lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai) respectively.
The new XC90 has been revolutionised
completely from the old XC90. Globally three engine options are available, but
in India only the Diesel D5 version with the 4 cylinder Twin Turbo Diesel engine
will be sold in the Momentum and Inscription trims. The engine produces 225bhp
@ 4250rpm mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission which delivers
acceleration from 0-100kmph in 7.8 seconds and a top speed of 220kmph. The New
XC90 is fitted with a double wishbone suspension at the front and integral axle
with transverse composite leaf spring and hydraulic shock absorbers in the rear
as standard. Air suspension is an optional extra. The steering wheel is a power
assisted rack and pinion system. With 345 and 320mm disc brakes, ABS is offered
as standard along with EBD and EBA with a choice of 20inch 10 spoke silver
diamond cut alloy wheels or 19inch 10 spoke turbine silver alloy wheels.
Due to governmental regulations, Volvo’s
radar guided cruise control and automatic braking systems will not be available
in India. Though the technology will be integrated into the car’s system, the
technology will be disabled. If and when the government gives the nod to such
advanced technology, the systems will then be enabled by Volvo. But as with
every Volvo, the new XC90 is packed with safety feature and is designed to keep
the occupants safe under any conditions possible. The XC90 was developed at
Volvos R&D facility in Sweden from scratch.
