What the Critics Say

"As the latest in a long line of Volvo wagons, the V90 Cross Country combines style and practicality as few luxury cars can. With extra ground clearance and all-wheel drive, this wagon offers all-weather confidence with a hint of off-road readiness." -- Car and Driver

"Volvo has been turning out attractive designs lately. The svelte V90 may be the best-looking of the bunch. (But hey, the automotive journalist brain sees things that way.) Chances are, station wagons aren't going to become wildly popular again. But the stylish V90 Cross Country does nearly everything an S.U.V. does, only in a sleeker package." -- New York Times

All-Road Capability

The sophisticated fifth-generation Volvo all-wheel-drive system keeps the V90 Cross Country moving when roads get rough or conditions deteriorate. When selecting Off-road mode from the Drive Mode menu, the car becomes easier to drive on difficult surfaces such as wet grass, mud and loose gravel by changing the way the engine delivers its power. On uneven ground, the Active chassis with rear air suspension comes into its own, taking bumps and twists in its stride.

Advanced driver aids such as Electronic Stability Control and Understeer Control Logic keep the V90 Cross Country stable, contributing to the way it handles corners. And when you come to a stop, the V90 Cross Country helps you to get going again thanks to Hill Start Assist. With your choice of a T5 or T6 high-performance powertrain there's sure to be a Volvo V90 Cross Country which fits your lifestyle.

Connected Technology

The Volvo V90 Cross Country offers innovative tech features to keep you both connected to the outside world and safe from the unexpected on the roadway. Intuitive, easy-to-use controls are a primary feature of Sensus and you will find them on the massive 9-inch Sensus Touchscreen. Standard Sensus Navigation provides intuitive guidance and connects seamlessly with our cloud-based services and navigation apps. With Volvo On Call, now standard with a 4-year complimentary subscription, you can begin every drive in comfort with the remote engine start.

Volvo V90 Cross Country Collision Avoidance Technology

Advanced Safety

Park Assist Pilot tells you if a parking spot is the right size for your Volvo and then takes over the steering to effortlessly maneuver your car into parallel and perpendicular parking spaces. Cross Traffic Alert technology can spot vehicles approaching from either side of your Volvo at a distance of up to 98 feet. Your Volvo helps reduce the risk of colliding with an oncoming vehicle thanks to Oncoming Lane Mitigation which operates at speeds between 40 mph and 86 mph. If you don't react to the warning and start to drift into the path of another vehicle, the Steer Assist function will gently guide you back into your lane. From preventive technology that helpsyou avoid collisions to protective features that cushion the impact of any collision, Volvo continues to innovate in order to improve your safety.
