    T5 drive-e engine

    Is it just me! Or does the drive-e petrol T5 engine seem very noisy when idling!? Itís not quite as loud as a diesel but much louder than previous turbo petrol cars I have owned.. anything different that attributes to this?

    The drive-e engine is different to the old volvo modular design and uses direct injection so won't have the same sound. Will be a totally different engine.

    They play fast and loose with the T5 branding these days

    It's the high pressure injection that makes it sound diesel like...
