XC90-T5-Executive

Yes, the Volvo XC90 is still around in its original form, but the old timer gets new trim for the new year. It is now sold as the XC90 T5 Executive, priced at RM368,888 on-the-road without insurance.

For that sum, you get stuff like leather seats, wood inlays, integrated booster cushions, ISOFIX and a 12-speaker sound system with Bluetooth, six-disc CD changer and AUX port.

The exterior is spruced up with chrome mirror covers, LED driving lights, a new front bumper bar and 19-inch “Galateia” wheels. The big SUV is available in four colours – Ice White, Ember Black, Electric Silver and Twilight Bronze, as seen here.

Under the hood is the familiar 2.5 litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine with 210 hp and 320 Nm, paired to a five-speed automatic. Saftey tech includes Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC), Roll Stability Control (RSC) and Rollover Protection System (ROPS), WHIPS (Whiplash Protection System), SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) and IC (Inflatable Curtain).
