 Press release:

Volvo Car UK has increased the availability of its new Euro VI compliant Drive-E engines by replacing all of its front-wheel-drive models with the new four-cylinder engines. This roll-out of the Drive-E powertrain family, Volvo's in-house designed and built engines and gearboxes, marks a further step in its technological independence and also ends Volvo's reliance on engines sourced from other manufacturers.

The engines are built with a maximum of 2.0-litres and four cylinders, using a mixture of turbocharging, supercharging and electrification to produce varying power outputs. This configuration allows for lower weight, size and complexity, all resulting in lower emissions and fuel consumption.

New to selected models across the range are petrol powered T2 and T3, and diesel powered D2 and D3 engines. They join the four-cylinder T5/T5AWD and D4 Drive-E engines which were launched in 2014.

Along with the new Drive-E engines, a number of other enhancements have also been introduced across the model range, details are highlighted below.
