2016 Volvo XC90 D5 (225hp) - 0-203 km/h acceleration (60FPS)

By Automann-TV

Full throttle Autobahn acceleration test with the all new 2015 / 2016 Volvo XC90 as the range-topping D5 Diesel delivering 225 hp and 470 Nm of torque (weight: 2.082 kg). My thanks go to Mattusch Automobile in Kaiserstlautern (www.autohaus-mattusch.de) who ordered a large variety of new XC90 and made this test drive possible. With this new XC90 Volvo really is back in high-class premium market and as previously said isn't only fighting the new X5 and Q7 with this but also going on pair with a Range Rover Vogue or a Porsche Cayenne on interior design and quality. Unfortunately this car only had 1.800 km on the clock and it was 35 degrees outside when we did the test. Therefore I believe that there are still some seconds in if you would do it under our "usual" conditions. Nevertheless, you can instantly feel that the new D5 mated with the 8-speed transmission is a great power-train. Faster than a X5 25d (car magazines tested that) , more fuel efficient and very very quiet also at higher Autobahn speeds. If I heard correctly there is a Polestar Upgrade coming soon to 250 hp and 500 Nm for those wo want the extra punch on the Autobahn:) If you LIKE this don't hesitate to COMMENT / SUBSCRIBE and don't miss the full DRIVE & SOUND coming out soon!
