Volvo wagons are one of the most beautiful long-roof automobiles ever produced as well as the 2020 Volvo V90–available on a limited purchase only–completes the role of an elegant vehicle by having an interior that is contemporary Scandinavian style and luxurious design. Two engines are available with the front-wheel drive T5 is driven by a 250-hp turbocharged four-cylinder. The all-wheel-drive T6 is a turbocharged and enhanced version, and produces 331 horsepower. A more robust, taller V90 Cross Country (reviewed separately) is available with a 250-hp engine as well as all-wheel drive.
What’s New for 2020?
With only a few differences The 2020 V90 is largely similar to it was in the year 2019 V90. The R-Design trims feature black mirror caps with gloss window trim, as well as roof rails that are integrated. Park Assist pilot helps in parallel parking, as well as Front Park Assist (front camera as well as audible alerts for proximity) is now offered as alternatives.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
You can avoid the expense of the extravagant Inscription trim. We recommend the stunning R-Design model, which comes with a more powerful engine 316 horsepower with all-wheel-drive. All V90s are equipped with a wide range of common features that include the 12.3-inch digital gauge display with a panoramic sunroof in-dash navigationsystem, four-zone auto climate control, as well as a variety of driver assistance technology, with a semi-autonomous mode of driving.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
Volvo has two variants that have a 4-cylinder motor within the year 2020. V90. The T5 is powered by turbochargers, which produce 250 horsepower and comes with front-wheel drive. We’ve only tried the more powerful T6 version; it has turbocharger and supercharger which produces 316 horsepower and is equipped having all-wheel-drive. On our test track the V90 T6 Inscription test vehicle required 5.6 seconds to hit 60 mph. This is 0.2 second faster over our V90 Cross Country with the identical powertrain, but 0.8 second less than the E450 Mercedes-Benz wagon. Because of its lower ride height the V90 is a little more fun and enjoyable to ride than Cross Country. But there’s a downside for the extra sportiness however: the ride isn’t quite as smooth as it is on the higher V90 and isn’t as smooth as the Benz. Its cornering capabilities are high and especially when you use the optional 20 inch wheels as well as performance tires. The brakes are also an inspiration to confidence as the V90 R-Design was able to go at 70mph, in just 157 feet. With all-season tires on the road, braking distances are measured more, however they’re still in line similar to the other stations wagons.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
Front-wheel drive T5 models are one of the most efficient in the class, and have an average of 35 mpg on the highway from the EPA however we’ve not tested any. The all-wheel drive T6 was able to achieve 30 mpg on our 200-mile highway route for fuel economy This is just 1 milliliter short of it’s EPA rating.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The Volvo lineup is amidst the most beautiful interiors on the market including V90 is no exception. V90 is no exception. Comfortable leather (or faux suede and leather) seats are able to make numerous adjustments. The contemporary design of the dashboard is luxurious with wood that has an open-pore design, metal trim and soft-touch padding. All models feature an expansive panoramic sunroof, making the spacious cabin is even more spacious. In general V90 and Cross Country V90 as well as the V90 Cross Country have more than adequate interior space but they are not as spacious. Subaru Outback shows up its superiority rivals by offering more passenger space both in front and back. The V90 had the same amount of carry-on bags in the same way as V90 Cross Country: eight behind the rear seat and 21 when the rear seats are folded down. The V90 has the advantage of having small-sized storage space beneath the floor of the cargo, but the cubby space within the cabin isn’t uncommon for this class.
Infotainment and Connectivity
There’s a Sensus Connect infotainment system, although it’s slow to start as you start your car It’s an easy and simple interface . It’s displayed on the 9.0-inch touchscreen that is vertically oriented on every V90 models.
