New engines for Volvo range

  • New 1.6 and 2.0-litre diesel engines
  • Revised naming structure for engines
  • Open to order now

Volvo has announced a host of revisions to its model line-up with new engines and a revised naming system.

All engine names are now prefixed by either a D for diesel, or T for petrol. A number is then added to signify the engine's power output.

For example, the new five-cylinder 2.0D engine will be available in varying power outputs - in the C30, S40, V50 and C70 ranges the 150bhp engine is badged D3, while a more powerful 177bhp version is badged D4.

In the S80, V70, XC70 and XC60 ranges, the engine produces 163bhp and is badged D3.

Also new is a 1.6-litre D2 diesel engine in the C30, S40 and V50 models which produces 115bhp, fuel economy of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km. The DRIVe 1.6D model will continue to be offered.

Also new is the ES trim level which replaces the previous entry-level S specification grade.

The revised range of Volvo models is open to order now.
