The Volvo XC40 B5 R-Design Boost Hybrid graced the greens at the Alabang Country Club’s 35th Mango Tee, where Volvo Philippines is a proud Hole-in-One sponsor. This year’s tournament held activities from January 30 to February 4. Around P36 million were at stake, with prizes and giveaways ranging from cars to golf carts.
The first-ever Volvo model to win the prestigious European Car of the Year award, the Volvo XC40 B5 R-Design Boost Hybrid is a fitting hole-in-one prize in the tournament. The compact SUV is defined by a strong graphical design, a natural feeling of strength and quality, and a playful nature regarding colors and materials. It also features a next-generation infotainment system and Volvo Cars’ latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor platform.
“Volvo has many good reasons to engage in sports events like golf. First, it lets us catch up with customers and meet new ones. This Mango Tee tournament is one event where we can get together under exciting circumstances,” says Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, Chief Executive Officer of Volvo Philippines.
This XC40 B5 R-Design Boost Hybrid is equipped with Volvo’s advanced kinetic energy recovery braking system, coupled with its existing internal combustion engines, to create a new integrated electrified powertrain. This new powertrain, electrified via brake-by-wire energy recovery, offers drivers up to 15 percent fuel savings and emission reductions in real-world driving.
