Volvo’s 90 Series consists of its largest cars, and in the case of the V90 that means a Swedish take on the estimable wagon. Long, low, and pleasingly timeless, the 2021 V90 follows in the tire track marks of classic Volvo estates of old. This time around, though, Volvo designed it with more than just a ruler.
In the case of the V90 Cross Country, meanwhile, things get a little more rugged. Ride height is up, and there’s a sturdy body kit to make the wagon somewhat more resilient to off-road scuffs and scrapes. The same T6 engine – a supercharged, turbocharged inline-4 – is present and correct, as is all-wheel drive.
Inside, the cabin screams Scandinavian restraint. Volvo’s cosseting seats, the easy-to-use Sensus infotainment system, and lashings of space. You don’t see many of them on the road, but those who know about the V90 know why they’re special.
