Volvo adds new five-cylinder turbodiesel to S80 engine lineup

>> Wednesday, January 7, 2009

Volvo is introducing a new 2.4L diesel engine in the Volvo S80, with the only commonality between it and the outgoing mill being the D5 badge and five-cylinder configuration. The new engine is Euro 5 compliant and will be available for sale in Europe from the middle of the year. With innovative engineering solutions such as sequential twin turbochargers, ceramic glow-plugs and piezoelectric fuel injectors, Volvo's engineers have succeeded in cutting fuel consumption to some of the lowest levels for a car of this size – 38mpg (6.2L/100km) and C02 emissions of roughly 164g/km.
