Autoweek (<A HREF="http://www.autoweek.nl/newsdisp.php?ID=4863&cache=no" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autoweek.nl/newsdis...he=no</A>) reports that the S40 and V50 will come available with 2 new engines: a 1.6 (4 cyl 100hp) and a 2.0 (4 cyl 145hp - replacement for the 140hp 2.4 5 cyl).<p>The 1.6 has been available in some counties and is now coming to the Netherlands. The 2.0 is new.<p>In Holland the engine lineup now will be:<br>1.6 - 100hp 4 cyl<br>1.8 - 125hp 4 cyl<br>2.0 - 145hp 4 cyl<br>2.4 - 170hp 5 cyl<br>T5 - 220hp 5 cyl<br>2.0D - 136hp cyl diesel<p>I think there is also an 109hp 1.6D available in some countries like the UK.<p>Pascal

Re: New engines for (Johann)

In Belgium we also have the 1.6D with 110 hp, and now the D5 2.4 with 163hp (limited 180hp version for tax reasons).

I had a 1.6D as a courtesy car a while back and I was pretty impressed - until you really got going there wasn't a massive drop in performance from mine but the 1.6 was a quieter, more refined, far less clattery engine.<p>Waiting for the D5 to launch here so I can try one - although we have to wait longer for a manual version, apparently.

The 185 D5 is a monster - "practically" undriveable in the wet in FWD configuration. I test drove a GT FWD V70 in the rain and saw wheelspin into third gear under robust acceleration. <p>With AWD and a chip to 220/450nm it could be interesting.
