2019 Volvo V90 Cross Country

Pros: Nicely appointed interior; Cross Country’s rough-road capability; cargo room

Cons: Complex control system, some pricey options

CG Says: The 2019 Volvo V90 adds standard heated front seats and washer nozzles to the base T5 model. Other than some equipment shuffling, the V90 is unchanged. The Volvo V90 is a premium midsize wagon with seating for five. The base engine is a 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4 cylinder that is badged T5. T6 models are powered by a 316-horsepower supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Both engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The V90 wagon has a choice front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is standard on Cross Country models. Available safety features include autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian and cyclist detection, rear-collision warning, steering-linked LED headlights, blind-spot alert, cross-traffic alert, and lane-keep assist. Other available features include adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlights, rain-sensing wipers, hill-descent control, panoramic sunroof, surround-view cameras, quad-zone automatic climate controls, heated front and rear seats, and massaging front seats. The V90 is a good alternative for those who want the cargo capacity of an SUV without going the full-SUV route. Plus, the V90 Cross Country has SUV-like ground clearance.  (For those who desire a crossover SUV, Volvo also sells an XC90 with three rows of seating.) The V90’s well-finished interior and long list of safety features also make it a compelling alternative to mainstream SUVs.
