Volvo Drive-E T5 Receives Ward's 10 Best Engines Accolade



One of the most prestigious accolades that can be received by part of a car is the Ward's 10 Best Engines award. This year, WardsAuto put the Volvo Drive-E T5 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine made the list.

We feel that Bergen County NJ area drivers should know that it beat out the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engines used in the 2015 Audi S3, 2015 Acura TLX, 2015 Lexus NX 200t, 2015 Hyundai Sonata, 2015 Chevy Cruze, 2015 VW GTI and 2015 Mini Cooper S hardtop.

The Volvo Drive-E T5 was picked based on the judgment of 8 jurors from WardsAuto who used the 2015 Volvo S60 during their daily commute in and around Detroit. Sound familiar to you NYC-area commuters who have to endure rush hour?

They took that same look at 37 other engines throughout October and November and evaluated them based on:

  • Horsepower
  • Torque
  • Drivability
  • Noise mitigation
  • Flexibility
  • Observed fuel economy
  • Onboard technology

Let's take a look at what this 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder provides. The engine is capable of delivering 240 hp, 258 lb/ft of torque and fuel economy of up to an EPA-estimated 37 mpg highway and 25 mpg city.

In terms of tech, this engine combines 8-speed Geartronic automatic transmission, Start/Stop capability, ECO+ technology and Brake Energy Regeneration. The 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder is used in front-wheel drive models.
