Drive Wire: Volvo’s New XC90 Gets a Price Cut

Good news from Volvo, who are launching a new version of their impressive XC90. It’s called the T5 and the great part is the price, which starts at 44,000, five grand less than the previous cheapest version. Of course, for that you get a little less – five seats instead of seven, and front-wheel drive instead of all. The T5 also has the smallest motor, a 250-horse turbo four. But that’s all many people really need, and if the price helps get you into this handsome thing, that’s great! You can always add all-wheel drive for an extra 2,000. In this case, less is more for a lot of folks.
