All-New Volvo V90 in Wolverhampton, West Midlands
The V90 along with the S90 are the latest cars from Volvo having been launched in October 2016.
Following on from the XC90, both cars are full of the latest technologies and safety features. They are also be the first cars available to offer complete driveability without the use of a key; instead they operate from a smartphone app, although customers can opt for a standard key if they prefer.
As with everything Volvo, the V90 has been designed to ooze style, but in a typically understated manner. It is the pinnacle of the modern luxury estate. Whereas the interiors of a number cars of this ilk tend to be overcomplicated, the V90‘s interior has the same minimalist dash design as it’s saloon partner the S90 and the XC90. The familiar central touchscreen, Apple Car Play, high-end Bowers & Wilkins stereo system and sat-nav say it all.
The model is available with the Drive-E turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the D4 diesel with 187bhp and the D5 with 232bhp. The two diesels use an 8-speed automatic gearbox (with a 6-speed manual on the entry-level D4), which helps keep economy high and emissions low. There are four trim levels available; the Momentum, Inscription R-Design and Cross Country.
As with all Volvo’s safety comes hand in hand with style and the V90 there’s no exception to the rule. It features Pilot Assist II semi-autonomous driving tech as standard, large animal detection and run-off road mitigation, City Safety technology, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, road sign recognition, a speed limiter and of course Volvo's know how when it comes to airbags and crash protection. Optional safety equipment includes a blind spot monitor, rear collision warning, cross traffic alert, a 360-degree parking camera and Volvo's Park Assist Pilot software.
