The Volvo V90, the station wagon derivative of the S90 sedan, made its world premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The V90 is likely to replace the aging V70 which is based on the S80.
The most premium estate by Volvo yet looks identical to the S90 starting from the front fascia all the way up to the B-pillar, aft which the roof line continues flat. The wedge shaped rear fascia houses vertical LED taillights, a tapering rear windshield and dual-exhaust.
The interior design and equipment level are identical to those of the S90 sedan. The centre console features an extra large touchscreen infotainment display which incorporates functions like music, navigation, climate control, reverse parking, safety systems, etc, thereby eliminating the buttons. The opulent cabin in appointed with top-notch leather, wood and metal elements.
The elaborate equipment list includes Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system, Run off-road Mitigation, Large Animal Detection, adaptive cruise control road sign information, speed limiter, distance alert, lane departure warning, optional IntelliSafe Surround Package with BLIS, Rear Collision Warning, Cross Traffic Alert, 360 degree camera with park assist and so on.
The same set of 5 2.0-litre engines (2 petrol, 2 diesel and a petrol hybrid) that power the S90 also serve the V90. Mated to a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, the engines have their outputs ranging between 190 PS and 407 PS.
