Software and hardware updates designed to save fuel

Volvo Torque Assist is a new software program included in the upgraded engines, designed to help the driver to operate their vehicle more fuel-efficiently when not using cruise control. The result is that any driver is able to achieve a high level of fuel-efficient driving regardless of their experience and expertise.


In addition, a number of hardware upgrades have also been implemented, to cut fuel consumption even further.
