By: Toni on 14 august 2014
Volvo S80 D4 and Volvo S80 D5 are variants available for Volvo S80 these both variants are identical in measurements and size but their is slight variation in terms of performance i.e. Volvo S80 D5 have 2.4-litre 215bhp 20V In Line Twin Turbo Diesel Engine while Volvo S80 D4 have 2.0-litre 163bhp 10V In Line Twin Turbo Engine, this engine variations also effects engine cubic capacity i.e. Volvo S80 D5 have engine displacement of 2400 cc while Volvo S80 D4 shows engine displacement of 1984cc. The names of both engines also show the different characteristics of maximum power and maximum torque i.e. Volvo S80 D5 have maximum power of 215bhp@4000rpm with Maximum Torque 440Nm@1500-3000rpm and Volvo S80 D4 have Maximum power of 163bhp@3500rpm with Maximum Torque 400Nm@1500-2750rpm. According to my point of view if i straight forward ask you to go for 1 variant then this will not be fair other variant as you can see the above mentioned figures have hardly any difference.
Basically variant selection of Volvo S80 or any other car for that matter of fact totaly depends upon you. Let me explain how. Everything in nature have different set of characteristics, need and wants also, so does the human beings. Every human, or we can say rider more precisely, have different requirements nor two different human beings can agree upon same set of features offered. According to me one should write down the features which he she requires and then go for variant selection. Which mean if the cheaper variant is solving the purpose then one should not waste money to buy the top one, and similarly if your desired set of features are available on top model only then one should not settle for anything less.
