Can someone explain what gives the T5 more power than the T4, since they are both basically turbocharged 4 cylinder engines? Could the T5 displacement be bigger?

I believe the increased power is due to the fact that the T5 is AWD while the T4 is FWD. This article has a pretty helpful comparison: 2019 Volvo XC40 T4 Momentum: Thrifty and Efficient
Still no explanation as to where the added HP comes from. My guess would be tuning and (maybe) more turbo boost, but I still have yet to hear a definitive answer. A little more HP might be desirable with AWD, but AWD doesn't produce the extra HP.
