Volvo Car UK is adding a front-wheel-drive diesel version of to its mid-size XC60 SUV range.

Volvo claims the diesel in particular will appeal to company car drivers, with reduced emissions compared with the four-wheel drive XC60.

It says the new D4 FWD is the most tax-efficient (for company car drivers) diesel variant in the XC60 range. Powered by Volvo’s 190hp 2.0-litre Drive-E engine and twinned with an automatic gearbox, it offers reduced monthly costs thanks to its low CO2 emissions and impressive fuel economy.

The D4 FWD is type approved to Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) standards, with an official combined fuel economy figure of between 42.2 and 47.9mpg. Its New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) equivalent CO2 emissions figure is just 129g/km, which equates to a Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rate of 33%.

Steve Beattie, Head of Business Sales at Volvo Car UK, said: “This is a really exciting addition to our premium mid-sized SUV range. The XC60 has enjoyed strong demand since it was launched, and the new D4 FWD variant makes it all the more desirable. People who want to cut their tax and fuel costs, and reduce their impact on the environment, without compromising on style, quality, practicality and comfort, will enjoy everything the XC60 D4 FWD has to offer.”
