The Newly Reimagined Volvo Xc60 is Now Available in Sabah!

My plan next year is to lookout for a new ride, partly because my 9 year old Gen 2 is already giving way and maybe, just maybe I could finally afford one. When I was invited to the launch of the new Volvo XC60 my first impression was - oh man! There goes my money!

Look at its sweet sweet interior.





The newly redesigned XC60 will be available in two exciting variants XC60 T5 & XC60 T6, through Volvo Car Malaysia’s authorised dealer in Sabah, Angkatan Hebat, One Borneo. Both variants will be equipped by the highly anticipated Drive-E Powertrain – a modular engine platform which will complement future Volvos built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA).

The reimagined exterior will showcase a new hood shape and chrome bar grille which  emphasizes the car’s width, together with prominent horizontal lines that will visually connect the car to the road. The tailpipes are now integrated with the diffuser and act as a visual link to the  new engine. Slight touches were made to the interior, including silk metal d├ęcor inlays and frames and paddle shifters.

I'd like to sleep on this overlooking the beautiful stars in this please :)  


The new XC60 will feature world-leading technologies including a new and improved Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection*, Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning with Distance Alert and Queue Assist*, City Safety which now works up to 50 km/h, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Closing Vehicle Warning (CVW), Cross Traffic Alert and Road Sign Information system*.

In terms of performance, the XC60 T5 will be powered by a two-litre, four-cylinder engine that
produces 245 hp and 350 Nm of torque, while the XC60 T6 will be powered by the same two-
litre, four-cylinder engine block but instead produces 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Both engine
variants will be mated with an 8-speed Geartronic transmission that is sure to deliver a refined
drive and excellent fuel economy.

XC60 T5 will be available from RM292,888 (on-the-road price without insurance) while the
XC60 T6 will be offered at a limited introductory offer of RM319,888 (on-the-road price without
insurance). As with all new Volvos, both variants will come with a 5-year warranty, 5 years of free
service including parts per scheduled maintenance, and 5 years of free roadside assist (Volvo-
on-Call).

The new XC60 T5 and XC60 T6 are available from today in Sabah, at all authorized Volvo dealers  nationwide!

Love,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.
