And at the same time, the engine that will be discussed is a turbocharged one. Sharp and economical.
This is not even one engine, but a whole line, which is installed on comfortable and well-equipped cars.
In particular, Alexander Vinogradov, an expert at Za Rulem, the oldest and most authoritative automotive publication in Russia, points to the 2016-2019 V40 Cross Country cross-station wagon, which was equipped with a 1.5-liter B4154T4 four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 152 hp. With.Four-cylinder B4154T4 with a volume of 1.5 liters and a power of 152 hp. found on facelifted V40 Cross Country (2016-2019 model years).

The only weak point of the engine is the crankshaft seals. Oil starvation must not be allowed – you must always monitor the level of all fluids and change the timing belt in time (if it breaks, the pistons meet the valves).
The line of Drive-E engines, which includes this engine, also includes a two-liter unit – B4204T. It is also found on the XC60 and XC90 crossovers. This engine is as reliable as a 1.5-liter engine.Turbo engines of the Drive-E series have proven themselves well throughout the current Volvo lineup.

There are quite a few Volvos with these engines on the secondary market. There are instances with runs far beyond 200 thousand km. But you should not be afraid of buying them (after diagnostics, of course): there have been no cases of premature death of Drive-E motors.
By the way, Volvo still equips its cars with Drive-E engines and does not plan to replace these well-proven units.
There are other crossovers with very resourceful motors. Why F1 motors are so powerful is a visual video. With a volume of only 1.6 liters, they have a power of about 1000 hp! “Driving” can also be read on Viber.
