Volvo V90 - At a glance car review

 

Make: Volvo

Model: V90

Headlines:

Volvo’s more striking design first seen on the XC90 SUV makes its way onto the flagship Volvo V90 estate model as the Swedish brand seeks to progress into the executive territory. A choice of 190hp D4 or 235hp D5 diesels, the latter with all-wheel drive, make up the engine range, and Volvo also offers the V90 Cross Country model with raised ride height and off-road-style cladding.

CCT positive:

The V90 looks great, is classy inside and is comfortable and refined. Emissions are decent, and the R-design lifts the styling even further. As does the butch Cross Country model.

CCT negative:

The infotainment system is on a large vertical screen, but isn’t the most straightforward to navigate from the off. It’s not as sporty to drive as some rivals.

Main rivals:

Audi A6 Avant, BMW 5-Series Touring, Jaguar XF Sportbrake, Mercedes E-Class estate

Interesting alternatives:

Skoda Superb estate, Ford Mondeo Vignale estate

CCT says:

The kind of car that gets better the longer you live with it.
