CKD Volvo S60 T4 & T5 launched !

Some said the CBU Volvo S60 sold previously in Malaysia is overpriced, translated that it was rare to see a Volvo S60 on the road, until now. Volvo Car Malaysia had launched the CKD S60 with two variants - T4 & T5. Unfortunately, the much more expensive, top of the range T6 is only available in CBU form (but with the best looking alloy wheel!).


Both the Volvo S60 T4 & T5 are equipped with four cylinder, Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection (GTDi) engine and mated with six-speed Powershift gearbox, where the engines has small cc but big in power due to the turbocharger. The T4 has a 1.6litre engine capable of producing 180bhp and 240Nm, comparable to some 2.0litre or larger capacity engine! 0-100 in 9.0secs and a top speed of 225km/h, not bad for a car of its size.

On the other hand, the T5 has a 2.0litre engine with 240bhp and 320Nm. 0-100km/h in 7.5secs and a top speed of 230 km/h. Bring it on, Volkswagen Scirocco!

Volvo is not skimpy (never will) when it comes to putting safety features to its car, even for the cheapest T4. Both T4 and T5 has the same amount of safety features such as City Safety, Collision Warning with Auto Brake (CWAB) with Pedestrian Protection, Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) with Advanced Stability Control and many more.

What's best about T4 and T5 is their price. Being a CKD, it will be priced significantly lower than CBU models, where the T4 is selling at RM220,000 while T5 at RM255,000 OTR without insurance. A whooping RM33k difference between the CBU T5 and CKD T5 if you compare. With the reduced pricing and extensive list of safety features, not to mention great performance, a S60 T4 will certainly be enough for me! May I have one please? *puppy eyes*
