About Volvo V90

The 2018 Volvo V90 is the flagship wagon from the Swedish automaker, a luxurious hauler of people and gear that blends upscale amenities, striking design and the brand's latest arsenal of safety and driving aids. In Cross Country form, the V90 is a standout alternative to luxury SUVs, boasting all-wheel drive (AWD) and extra ground clearance while retaining the sophisticated driving manners of a stately sedan. The V90 can also be ordered as a standard wagon that sits a bit lower but is elegant in its own right. The V90 Cross Country is unique, with few direct rivals. Rather, it sits atop a pack that begins with rugged wagons like the Volkswagen Alltrack and Subaru Outback, and continues to the Audi A4 Allroad.

"Traded a 2012 XC60 for 2018 V-90 Cross Country. Drove it for about 1000 miles and returned it to dealer for a 2017 XC60 demonstrator with Certified Warranty. Got hosed financially in the deal, and dont even care. Love the 2017 XC60. Hated the 2018 V-90. Electronics were unreliable. Nav system would sometimes not load up, but would give circle of death loading sign until I shut everything down and started over. Would accept destinations, but then forget and make me reenter everything. Warning for lane changes on multi-lane highways were provided too late to actually make lane changes safely. Categories for search were not tuned to American driving and needs. Large screen was mostly a video-game-like distraction from actually driving the car. Radio would come on mysteriously after just opening driver side door to put groceries or brief case into car, but not starting it up. Various apps, especially Weather,Pandora, and Sirius would not load or would load and then fail to function--again until stopping car and starting all over again. (Sometimes even this would not fix the problems.) Stop/start override function for the engine when at stop lights or at rest required several different screens to operate. In the XC60 a simple push of one button on the console does the trick. Stop/start is dumb in any case. Should be a one-time choice of owner/driver, not something you have to select every time you operate the car. Repeated use of starter motor makes no sense at all. It also results in lag while system restarts that is annoying as can be. My 2017 XC60 is a fine car and allows the driver to actually drive without lots of IT and other distractions. Just drove it from CT to California and love it. It is likely to be my very last Volvo."

my 2018 Volvo V90 CC in Gotenburg, Sweden

"I wanted a vehicle to tow my boat, but I didnt want a SUV -- too bloated, tall and awkward. I found the V90 Cross Country. With the tow package, this vehicle fit the bill. I took delivery in Sweden. I drove the car around the land where it was born for a couple of weeks. Then they shipped it to the States. I have had it since December. The car is stable, has great visibility, handles well, it has AWD, is comfortable, elegant and well made. The ground clearance of 8.3 inches is a plus. I was concerned about the small block engine, but it turns out to be a non-issue. With the blowers on this engine, the AWD and the beautiful 8 speed transmission, the engine has plenty of power. The Sensus system takes some getting used to, but it becomes indispensable. There is a profile feature built in that allows one to permanently turn off the annoying start stop feature, for example. I have found the navigation system to be spot on. I have not had any electronics issues. I am more than pleased I purchased the V90 CC. Plan to keep this one for quite awhile. I may buy another Volvo in the near future."
