2011 VOLVO XC60 T5 POWERSHIFT CKD LAUNCHED IN MALAYSIA
Volvo Car Malaysia has launched the 2011 Volvo XC60 T5 Powershift, a new locally-assembled version of the best-selling Volvo model in the world. At RM 289,950 (OTR without insurance), the new XC60 variant costs RM 8K more than the Volvo XC60 2.0T Powershift launched in November 2010. For the extra money, you get more power and more equipment.
Powering the XC60 T5 Powershift is the same 2.0-litre GTDI (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) engine that now produces 240 hp at 5500 rpm and 320 Nm at 1800–5000 rpm, up from 203 hp and 300 Nm. The generated power is delivered to the front wheels via the same Powershift six-speed twin-clutch transmission.
Extra advanced safety features include the world’s first Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake (up to 35 km/h), Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake (up to 180 km/h), Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist (up to 200 km/h), adding on to a list of safeguards comprising the Roll Stability Control, Blind Spot Information System and City Safety. (Collision Warning with Auto Brake and Adaptive Cruise Control were available on the XC60 2.0T Powershift.)
Chief among the new cabin equipment is the Volvo Sensus infotainment system (previously a RM 11K option), which can be controlled via a 7-inch LCD colour screen and steering-mounted buttons. The previous CD player has been replaced by a DVD player with MP3 compatibility, while the Bluetooth system gains a new audio streaming function.
