The Volvo V90 offers a rare combination of cargo space and comfort in a car-shaped package. It’s a full-size flagship station wagon, with all of the opulent amenities shoppers may want in the Volvo S90 luxury sedan. The Volvo V90 Cross Country toughens up the standard V90 with rugged body pieces and extra ride height. The Volvo S90 and V90 Cross Country are reviewed separately.
2018 to Present: Volvo V90
This is the second generation for the Volvo V90, which had a short production run late in the 1990s. Since its revival, the newer model has established itself as one of the most stylish and well-equipped entries in an admittedly small segment. The result is a far cry from Volvo’s brick-like beauties of the 1970s and ’80s.
The Volvo V90 provides a five-seat interior within its full-size dimensions. Volvo also offers forced-induction engines, automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive.
The V90’s cabin is modern yet sparse, with an upscale design that’s enhanced by a large, tablet-style display. This acts as a high-tech control interface and keeps the dash free from messy buttons and knobs. There’s plenty of legroom for both rows of seats, too, along with a wagon’s worth of cargo space. Materials and fittings are well-crafted throughout.
The second-generation V90 made its debut with a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. An optional powertrain adds a supercharger and all-wheel drive to the four-cylinder turbo engine. With that setup, the V90 packs 316 horsepower. It’s enough for confident if not overwhelming performance.
Volvo supplies typical upscale equipment including a handsfree tailgate, a panoramic moonroof, mobile Wi-Fi, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. But buyers can also get the kind of ultra-lux features that are usually reserved for the top of the marketplace. This includes massage-function seats, audiophile-level sound systems and a digital instrument panel.
As expected, the V90 seals the deal with a broad range of Volvo’s cutting-edge driver-assistance measures. One highlight: Volvo’s Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system.
Rivals include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class station wagon, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake and Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, which are all equally upscale.
Earlier Volvo V90 Models
As part of automaker changes, the Volvo 960 wagon and sedan were renamed the Volvo V90 and S90 for the 1997 and 1998 model years. That first-generation V90 shows off midsize dimensions with a crisp exterior design, standard rear-wheel drive and a 181-horsepower V6 engine. A premium choice for its time, the 1997-1998 V90 can also tow up to 3,300 pounds when properly equipped.
