• XC60 mid-size SUV now available in new front-wheel-drive diesel (D4 FWD) form

• XC60 D4 FWD offers CO2 emissions of just 129g/km and 33% Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) tax for company car drivers

Volvo Car UK is adding to its multi-award-winning premium SUV range with the introduction of an efficient front-wheel-drive diesel version of the mid-size XC60.


Perfect for company car drivers, the new D4 FWD is the most tax-efficient diesel variant in the XC60 range. Powered by Volvo's acclaimed 190hp 2.0-litre Drive-E engine and twinned with an automatic gearbox, it offers reduced monthly costs thanks to its low CO2 emissions and impressive fuel economy.


The D4 FWD is type approved to Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) standards, with an official combined fuel economy figure of between 42.2 and 47.9mpg. Its New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) equivalent CO2 emissions figure is just 129g/km, which equates to a Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rate of 33%.


Steve Beattie, Head of Business Sales at Volvo Car UK, comments: "This is a really exciting addition to our premium mid-sized SUV range. The XC60 has enjoyed strong demand since it was launched, and the new D4 FWD variant makes it all the more desirable. People who want to cut their tax and fuel costs, and reduce their impact on the environment, without compromising on style, quality, practicality and comfort, will enjoy everything the XC60 D4 FWD has to offer."


The XC60 combines Volvo's contemporary Scandinavian design, cutting-edge safety features and generous equipment levels. This includes the company's technically advanced and intuitive Sensus touchscreen control system, which gives drivers the information they need, when they need it, while keeping them connected with the world around them. Every version also includes the City Safety range of active and preventative safety measures to protect all road users.


The XC60's exterior design reflects Volvo's contemporary luxury and craftsmanship, and its spacious, versatile interior offers practical accommodation for both passengers and cargo.
