Today in our test – Volvo XC90 Mild Hybrid. The flagship model has acquired a 48-volt electric appendage. Is it worth to pay for crossover attention again?
Of course! Because, first, we already know its price in Ukraine, and she is on the background of competitors – looks pretty tempting. And second, the Mild Hybrid system provides some amenities not available with classic combustion engines.
On the other hand, there is this configuration a few questions….Yes, 2.0-liter engine with a mild hybrid. Yes, eight-speed “automatic” Aisin. Yes, the availability of all-wheel drive. But!.. Can a system of “soft” hybrid to compensate for the relatively small 2.0-liter engine under the hood, flagship of the brand? How hybrid could affect your driving style? And what about the reduction in fuel consumption?
To these questions our leader Yaroslav necessarily give answers. And besides, today you will hear a brief history of downsizing, will test the strength of the statement “the new design is the best design” and see who actually has earned the status of “the direct competitor” the XC90.
Details in our review. Pleasant viewing!
