The Volvo V90 has met with universal acclaim, including tough-to-please Top Gear, which has awarded the car a nine-out-of-ten score. This stately cruiser is a feast for the eyes, inside and out, delivering all-encompassing quality, sublime comfort and as many safety features as one could hope for.
This elegant five-door estate bears the kind of design hallmarks that make it a more-than-able competitor to certain well-known premium German cars. For instance, the V90 rides on eye-catching, lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels as standard, and comes with a range of body-coloured fixtures. These include power-operated and heated door mirrors that also feature integrated indicators. Further illumination includes LED low-to-high-beam headlights and front fog lamps, each providing strong light sources when needed most.
A smartly designed and solidly constructed five-seat cabin delivers excellent levels of comfort, making the V90 especially suitable for extensive motorway travelling. Leather-upholstered seats play their part, of course, as does a spacious environment, which can comfortably accommodate even the tallest of passengers. There are plenty of useful cubby spaces provided throughout, including a large glovebox and expansive door bins – along with a 560-litre boot space, which can be quickly expanded to a 1,526-litre capacity.
The standard-issue 2.0-litre 190bhp diesel engine also happens to be the greenest option available for the V90. Paired with eight-speed automatic transmission, this returns as much as 62.8mpg and produces CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km, while delivering 0-60mph in approximately 8.3 seconds. The most potent engine available is another 2.0-litre diesel unit, this time producing 235bhp, a peak torque of 480Nm and 0-60mph in roughly seven seconds.
A nine-inch tablet-like touchscreen display provides access to a whole host of onboard functions. These include a satellite navigation system which features 3D mapping, up-to-the-minute traffic information and voice control. Accompanying you on all your journeys is a ten-speaker sound system, which includes an AM/FM tuner and DAB digital radio. Connectivity is provided by Bluetooth, among other things, which provides audio streaming and hands-free telephone communication.
Awarded a maximum five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP, the V90 comes loaded with driver aids and passive safety features, each delivering optimal protection for you and your co-passengers. Included is Volvo City Safety, which helps prevent low-speed collisions thanks to autonomous emergency braking technology. Smaller, more vulnerable travellers are kept secure too, with features such as childproof locks and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points.
