Volvo Aims Model Year Improvements at Company Motorists

7 May 2003

Volvo’s 2004 model year changes have been announced with some significant improvements that benefit the corporate market.

2.0T engine introduced to V70 and S80

2.4T engine upgraded to 2.5T for S60, V70 and S80

Price reductions and increased specification for S40 and V40 ranges

At the heart of the changes is the introduction of the S60’s five-cylinder, 2.0T’ (1984cc), turbo engine in the V70 and S80 ranges. The 180bhp 2.0T engine is priced on par with the 163bhp D5 turbo-diesel, and gives fleet managers more choice when selecting their company car lists.

The S40 and V40 ranges have received many price reductions (of up to £860 for 2.0T Sport Lux) despite increases in standard specification. Leather upholstery is now standard across the entire model range, although entry level 1.6 S models can be specified without leather for a price reduction of £500, bringing on the road prices down to just £13,980 and £14,980 for the S40 and V40 models respectively.

By introducing the 2.0T engine into S80 and V70 we have tried to offer fleets a more comprehensive range of engines to suit all levels on their car choice lists,’ explained Ian Rendle, Volvo Car UK’s Corporate Sales Manager.

At the other end of the range the S40 and V40 with leather upholstery and more equipment as standard now offer fleets better value than ever,’ he added.
