Volvo has introduced a front-wheel drive version of its XC60 SUV.
The new variant, which joins a range that was previously four-wheel drive only, is available with a choice of two engines: the 190hp D4 diesel, and the 250hp T5 petrol. Both come paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The diesel offers an official combined fuel economy of between 42.2mpg and 47.9mpg, and CO2 emissions of 129g/km.
For the petrol, the figures are between 30.1mpg and 34mpg and between 165g/km and 169g/km respectively.
Both powertrains are available with: Momentum, Momentum Pro, R-Design and Inscription equipment grades, and the petrol is also available with R-Design Pro and Inscription Pro.
P11D values start at £38,450 for both engines.
Volvo claims the diesel in particular will appeal to company car drivers, with reduced emissions compared with the four-wheel drive XC60.
Head of business sales Steve Beattie said: "The XC60 has enjoyed strong demand since it was launched, and the new D4 FWD variant makes it all the more desirable.
"People who want to cut their tax and fuel costs, and reduce their impact on the environment, without compromising on style, quality, practicality and comfort, will enjoy everything the XC60 D4 FWD has to offer."
