Re: T3 RDesign or T5 Momentum?

I’m between the beatiful black/red fusion t3 rdesign vs the all black t5 It’s heart (rdesign) vs head (PHEV) war! :) You can also consider a momentum with a white colour roof.

Re: T3 RDesign or T5 Momentum?

In your case in Portugal it is T5 hybrid.

From the UK price list, the difference between a T3 manual and a T5 hybrid is over €10k :( :o :evil:. Furthermore the road tax is also higher for the T5 hybrid. The government name that as luxury car tax because of its high list price :cry:

Re: UK 1st year Road Fund Licence

The first link has shown that a MY20 R-design pro T4 FWD produces 132gm CO2 and based on that it is £210 1st year tax. However I have checked the V5 for my MY20 R-design pro T4 FWD, it is 156gm CO2 instead thus £530 tax.

Either the web is incorrect or Volvo with have an upgrade later.
