Volvo C70 gets new four-cylinder turbodiesel engine
Volvo is launching today the first 2-litre turbodiesel four-cylinder engine in the convertible. "The four-cylinder turbodiesel will be a very popular choice, especially in Europe where it will account for 20 percent of total C70 sales. The engine offers a very attractive combination of fuel economy and driving pleasure," says Fredrik Arp, President and CEO of the Volvo Car Corporation.
The engine has a maximum power of 136 hp and 320 Nm of torque. It delivers rapid throttle response and well-balanced sensitivity to the accelerator, offering the driver good control and generous driving pleasure.
The C70 2.0D has a fuel consumption of 6.1 l/100 km (EU combined). Acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 11.0 sec and top speed is 205 km/h.
The engine features second-generation common rail technology with moving rails - the same as in Volvo’s larger diesel models. The cylinder head is made of aluminium.
A Diesel Particulate Filter is standard. This filter significantly reduces unburned soot particles in the exhaust gases, thereby cutting the negative environmental impact. The system is cleaned (regenerated) automatically as the contents of the filter are burned off at regular intervals.
