Volvo is currently having a promotion for the diesel-powered Volvo XC90 D5 where for a limited time while stocks last, it’ll come standard with about RM40,000 worth of aesthetic accessories like 19 inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, a brushed metal design front bumper, XC Design running boards, a sports tail pipe and bright chrome trim around the windows.
Without the accessory package, standard wheels are 17 inchers. The D5 engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transimssion to put the engine’s 185 hosepower and 400Nm of torque down to the wheels. Fuel consumption for the diesel is just 8.5 litres per 100km on the combined cycle.
The XC90 D5 goes for RM355K OTR without insurance, the same price as the 2.5T model but the 2.5T will not come with the accessories. It looks like pretty good value for a 7 seater with air conditioning and airbags for all three rows, especially when it has way smaller competitors at the RM300k mark, and its own stablemate the XC60 is going for between RM330k to RM360k.
