Pros

The new V90 Cross Country is a good place to go if you have a weak spot for Volvo wagons. Also, there are few if any in this price class that combine SUV surefootedness with the functionality and fun-to-drive feel of a traditional station wagon.

Cons

This isn't the place to go for size and a high seating position. While there’s no doubt the V90 Cross Country has all-wheel-drive chops, its relatively low-slung nature does not project the same rugged, go-anywhere do-anything image of a traditional SUV.

What's New For 2017

The 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country is all-new. Spun from the recently introduced range-topping S90 sedan, the V90 skillfully integrates the same clean exterior design into a handsome wagon shape that’s sleek and sexy. Beneath the skin is a high-tech turbo- and supercharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers V6 levels of power.

Used 2017 Volvo V90 Expert Review

Bridging the white space between crossover SUVs and traditional station wagons, the all-new 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country has a slightly higher ride height and a more muscular appearance thanks to subtle body cladding and the kind of functionality and luxury that sets Volvos apart in the marketplace. While there is no direct competitor for this sporty wagon geared to the active lifestyle set, think of it as sitting atop a continuum that starts with the Volkswagen Alltrack, continues through the Subaru Outback and up through the Audi A4 Allroad.

Driving the Used 2017 Volvo V90

The V90 shares a similar dynamic nature as the front-drive S90 sedan and benefits from a long wheelbase that imparts a supple ride. The steering is direct, well-controlled and offers precise feedback. The difference from the sedan, as well as the standard V90 wagon (which comes special-order-only from your dealer) is its slightly higher ride height -- it’s 2.3 inches taller which contributes to 8.3 inches of ground clearance -- as well as the standard all-wheel drive, which figures greatly in its neutral handling characteristics. The car is well-balanced, exhibits little in the way of body roll and is decidedly more car-like in its roadholding than traditional SUVs. But that doesn’t mean the Cross Country gives up the ability to take on two-track off-road trails or plow through snow. It’s the perfect for winter commuting and backcountry exploring.

Favorite Features

TURBO/SUPERCHARGED ENGINE
The performance from this 2.0-liter 4-cylinder is simply amazing. Getting 316 horsepower from this engine is quite a feat -- the car doesn’t seem to lack for power and still delivers fuel economy that shames less powerful drivetrains.

SELECTABLE DRIVE MODES
In addition to the Eco, Comfort, Off Road and Dynamic modes (all of which are nicely tailored to their individual missions) is the standard hill-descent feature that gives the Cross Country dirt-trail cred.

Used 2017 Volvo V90 Interior

The interior blends modern tech functions with the clean aesthetics embodied in Scandinavian design. Flowing lines, plenty of soft-touch surfaces and the use of dark walnut inlays give the cabin an elegant, upscale aura. At the same time, the large vertical center touch screen has the same touch/swipe/pinch-control strategy familiar to anyone with a computer tablet. The seats are comfortable and supportive, and the view from the driver’s seat is enhanced thanks to the slightly higher seating position when compared to the S90 sedan. There’s also a large, panoramic sunroof that helps give the interior a light, airy feel.

Used 2017 Volvo V90 Exterior

The wagon profile actually makes the V90 look sleeker than the sedan. The concave shape of the grille and the detailing from the lighting elements to the use of brightwork match the level of elegance experienced on the inside. The Cross Country signals its off-road ability through the small front and rear skidplates, fender extensions over the wheel arches and the more aggressive rocker panels. If you don’t want to look as macho, you can opt for body-colored flares instead of the matte finish. An integrated roof-rack system is both good-looking and functional, like the car itself.

Used 2017 Volvo V90 Standard Features

In addition to the all-wheel drive and off-road friendly features like the hill-descent control, the Volvo V90 Cross Country has a long list of standard features that includes Pilot Assist (which combines lane-keeping steering assist with adaptive cruise control), a blind-spot information system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, driver-alert sensing, road sign information and lane-departure warning. Other upscale items that come standard include heated leather seats and steering wheel, a 12.3-inch driver display and 9-inch center screen with navigation, high-performance audio with 10 speakers, keyless entry and start and hands-free power tailgate.

Used 2017 Volvo V90 Options

There are two option packages, a $4,500 luxury group and a $1,950 convenience package. The former includes ventilated Nappa leather seating, backrest massage, leather upholstery on the dash and door panels, heated rear seats, 4-zone climate control, power-operated load cover and body-colored doorsills, bumpers and fender flares. Convenience items include HomeLink, a compass in the rearview mirror, park-assist pilot, high-level interior illumination and a 360-degree surround-view camera. A rear air suspension is a $1,200 stand-alone option, as are a head-up display ($900), Bower & Wilkens premium sound system ($2,650), 20-inch alloy wheels ($750), rear booster seat cushions ($500) and metallic paint ($560).

Used 2017 Volvo V90 Engine

There’s only one engine choice, a 2.0-liter gasoline 4-cylinder engine that benefits from both turbo- and supercharging. This twin forced-induction setup is designed to provide a highly responsive engine at both low- and high-rpm ranges. The transverse engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

2.0-liter turbo/supercharged inline-4
316 horsepower @ 5,700 rpm
295 lb-ft of torque @ 2,200-5,400 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 22/30 mpg (automatic)

Note: Due to changes in EPA testing to more effectively reflect real-world conditions, some 2017 models show slightly lower fuel-economy scores than their 2016 versions.

How Much Does the Used 2017 Volvo V90 Cost?

The 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country starts with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $55,300 with $995 in destination charges. With all the available options and packages, a fully loaded model will take the price up over $65,000. That puts it about $10,000 higher than a loaded version of its nearest competitor, the smaller Audi A4 Allroad. If you’re looking for a traditional SUV, that puts you in the same neighborhood as a Mercedes-Benz GLE 4Motion and BMW X5. Do check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their new V90 Cross Country. While not the class leader in resale value, it's perfectly logical to expect the new V90 Cross Country to hold its value pretty well over time.

"Great alternative to a SUV"

Comfortable, quiet, roomy
Must use Volvo hitch
I just bought a brand new 2018 V90CC leftover. I got about 28% discount from list. So it’s a huge bang for the buck. The car is smooth as silk. I wasn’t looking for a car quite this large but then again it’s only 4 inches longer than an Outback. The level of safety features is unparalleled. Anything you can think of is in it. I have the base engine and it’s fine. It’s no world beater but on the highway I’ve gotten 30 mpg. I had a Tiguan they never got close to that. It’s extremely roomy, stylish, comfortable and versatile. I’ve moved furniture, towed a trailer, gotten groceries, mulch, took out my kayaks and bikes. It’s great without having to use a step ladder to put stuff up on the roof. I’m 6’3 and the rear has room for me with my drivers seat in position for me! What’s not to like. Beautiful, stylish, wonderful driving car rather than driving a box on wheels aka an SUV!Read less

"Big Upgrade from XC70 - Great Luxury Wagon"

Handling, comfort, safety. Very well equipped.
Hauling capacity. Operator learning curve.
Replaced a 2010 XC-70 T6 with 2017 V90 Cross Country. Power train with 316 hp engine and 8 speed transmission is vast improvement in driveability enhanced by ability to select and customize drive modes For daily commute in stop-and-go traffic, standard comfort mode is fine. On highway, I prefer dynamic engine setting (with higher transmission shift points) but medium effort steering. Took a while figuring out how to custom configure and have it auto-load profile. Forgiving suspension, good cornering with excellent emergency handling for a high ground clearance heavyweight, enormous sun/moonroof, front seat ergonomics, upgraded B&W surround sound system, environmental controls, and active safety systems are all simply outstanding. Electronic touch screen interface could be more intuitive and sometimes is slow to load. Apple car play with iPhone integration has been unmitigated pleasure. Only significant concern was cost of maintenance and repair so purchased an extended warranty. Only change I would make is auto-downshift when changing into manual gear selector mode like on Audi.Read less

"Great car, elegant design"

elegant design, great handling, AWD, beautiful
smallish power plant
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.Read less

"My sixth Volvo. Electronics are just stupid."

Beautiful.
Expensive for what it is. Stupid electronics.
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.Read less
