Volvo Roadshow @ Highstreet 1 Utama

In this blog entry, I'll be blogging about Volvo Roadshow @ Highstreet, 1 Utama. I was there yesterday 9.50pm. There's 2 auto roadshow at the same time. The other being Mitsubishi Roadshow (see next post).

Interestingly, Volvo adopts 20,000 OR 1 year service intervals on ALL MODELS. Star of the show is the New S60 CKD. The T4 and T5. Both the t4 and t5 comes with World's 1st "Collision warning with FULL AUTO BRAKE and Pedestrian Detection", BLIS (Blind Spot Information System and 3 years/100000km warranty.

The T4 is a 1.6 Turbo mated with 6 speed Powershift with geartronic (Volvo's own DSG) and produces 180hp@5700rpm and 240Nm of torque from 1600-5000rpm. It boasts an impressive averaged FC of 7.4l/100km and goes from 0-100km/h in 9.0secs and tops 225km/h. The Price: RM220,000 w/o insurance earning the title "MOST EXPENSIVE 1.6 car". The BONUS: Road tax/annum only RM90.

The T5 is a 2.0 turbocharged also mated with 6 speed Powershoft with Geartronic and produces 240hp@5500rpm and 320Nm@1800-5000rpm. It goes from 0-100km/h in 7.5secs and tops 230km/h. Combined FC: 8.3l/100km.

Besides the S60, there's Volvo XC60, XC90, S40 and S80 on display. My favourite: The impressive XC90 D5 Diesel.

Powered by 5 cylinders 2.4 Turbo mated with 6 speed Auto with Geartronic and boasts combined FC of 8.5l/100km. It produces 185hp@4000rpm and a whooping 400Nm@2000-2750rpm.

Price: RM355,000 which is kinda "reasonable" for a FULL SIZE 7 seater (yup, I can fit in the 3rd row). Note that it's closest competitors: Land Rover Discovery TD6 costs RM488,000 and BMW X5 Diesel costs RM530,000. Audi Q7 3.0 Diesel: RM570,000.

Well, there's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words. Here are the photos:

This roadshow goes on till tomorrow (Sunday), feel free to check these models out. Sorry, no close up photos as there were preparing to close 10pm. Also, sorry for the Grainy photos, I was unprepared, didn't bring my camera. Taken using my old Nokia N79 instead.

That's all folks, thanks for having the time and patience to read this blog entry. A Jeff Lim's original production.
