|Volvo XC40 B5 R-Design Boost Hybrid
Volvo Philippines is a proud Hole-in-One sponsor of Alabang Country Club’s 35th Mango Tee. The Volvo XC40 B5 R-Design Boost Hybrid graced the greens at what could be dubbed one of the country’s most prestigious golfing events. Held annually, this year’s tournament held activities from January 30 to February 4. Around PHP 36 million were at stake, with prizes and giveaways ranging from cars to golf carts.
The Volvo XC40 B5 R-Design Boost Hybrid is a fitting prize in the tournament. It is the first-ever Volvo model to win the prestigious European Car of the Year award. The XC40 is defined by a strong graphical design, a natural feeling of strength and quality, and a playful nature regarding colors and materials. Intuitive and convenient, it has a next-generation infotainment system that offers customers unprecedented personalization and unparalleled connectivity.
This strikingly stylish compact SUV features Volvo’s advanced kinetic energy recovery braking system, coupled with its existing internal combustion engines, to create a new integrated electrified powertrain. This new powertrain, electrified via brake-by-wire energy recovery, offers drivers up to 15 percent fuel savings and emission reductions in real-world driving.
The XC40 brings a new safety standard to the compact SUV premium segment, as the car is now equipped with the award-winning safety technologies known from Volvo’s 90 and 60 Series cars. It also has Volvo Cars’ latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor platform – a modern, scalable active safety system comprising radars, cameras, and ultrasonic sensors. This platform enables the development and deployment of active safety systems, such as detecting other road users, automatic braking, and collision avoidance. In addition, the Pilot Assist function also allows for gentle driver support from a standstill up to highway speeds.
