  1. I don’t understand why Volvo built a new factory for only one model : this XC Classic.
    A production in Volvo’s Chengdu factury should be a better idea, not?

  2. Only available engine will be the 2.5 turbo ‘T5′ tuned up to 220hp. ….. ARE YOU FOR REAL .. 2.5 t5 tuned up?

    1. If you haven’t noticed, almost all Chinese variant of foreign branded cars got their engine swapped out with lower spec versions. This is in large part due to the higher taxes on larger engines, a car of XC’s size should have a T6 or better a V8 if volvo ever make one.
