Volvo took the wraps off its V90 wagon in Stockholm today and the car looks terrific. It is essentially a Volvo S90 sedan with a wagon body grafted on aft of the rear doors. It has the same mighty T8 turbocharged and supercharged 407 horsepower hybrid powertrain as the XC90. It also can be had with a 316 horsepower gas engine. All wheel drive is optional in that car.
“We have a very strong position in the estate segment,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars. “In many people’s minds we are known as the definitive estate brand. While the Volvo brand today stands for more than estates, we are proud to carry forward this rich heritage with the V90.”
The new V90 is the third car unveiled in Volvo’s top-of-the-line 90 series, all of which are built on the company’s modular Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). Now Volvo lovers have a choice between a big, handsome SUV or a svelte, handsome wagon. That’s a choice lots of other manufacturers wish they could offer their customers.
