Geely owned brand Volvo has boosted its green credentials with a new range of D5 diesel engines that emit just 129g/km of CO2 in the S80.

The upgraded versions of the Volvo V70, XC70 and S80 are the first in the Swedish manufacturer’s range to feature the revised five-cylinder D5 turbo-diesels, which not only come in as more powerful (215PS compared to 105PS previously) than the units they replace, but reduce fuel consumption by as much as eight percent.

Fuel consumption (EU Combined) of a Volvo S80 D5 is now an impressive 57.7 mpg (129 g/km of CO2) with manual gearbox and start/stop, placing it in the 18% BIK category.  The corresponding figures for the automatic version are 44.1 mpg (159 g/km of CO2).  The figures for the Volvo V70 estate car are 55.4 mpg (134 g/km) with the manual gearbox and 45.6 mpg with the automatic (164g/km).  Fuel consumption in the cross-over XC70 D5 AWD manual is 50 mpg (149 g/km) in the AWD version with manual gearbox and 41.5 mpg (179 g/km) with the automatic.

All three models receive equipment upgrades at the same time as the new diesel engines and are on sale now.   The V70 D5 (215hp) ES Start/Stop starts from £30,100; the S80 D5 (215hp) SE Start/Stop is from £31,135; and the XC70 D5 AWD (215 hp) ES Start/Stop is priced from £32,765.
