Wagon-loving Europhiles have a new vehicle to salivate over in the form of the 2018 Volvo V90. The handsome longroof was unveiled a year ago but is only now available to order for customers in the United States due to Volvo's decision to introduce the V90 Cross Country first.
The V90 has been priced from $50,945 and includes as standard a 12-inch infotainment screen, leather trim, a moonroof, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and electronic driver aids including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection. Options include a sporty R-Design package and luxury-oriented Inscription package.
There are just two powertrain options at launch: Volvo's T5 and T6 units. The T5 is standard and comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 with 240 horsepower. It's offered with front-wheel drive only. The T6 is a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 with 302 hp. It's offered with all-wheel drive only. Either configuration comes with an 8-speed automatic.
Uniquely, Volvo isn't displaying the V90 in showrooms. Instead, the automaker is focusing on the V90 Cross Country here. Buyers interested in the V90 need to place an order via the ?concierge? service on Volvo's website where a representative will be able to help via email, chat or over the phone.
