Review

Unless you must have the body cladding and extra ride height of the V90 Cross Country, most buyers would be better off with a regular V90 as it’s not just sharper to drive, but more comfortable, too. And if you really have your heart set on a high-riding estate car, we’d advise you take a look at the fantastic Audi A6 Allroad – from the way it drives to its punchier performance and extra boot space, it has the V90 Cross Country licked.

get the best price

Range-topping Inscription trim brings 19in alloy wheels and an even more upmarket interior with nappa leather, an electrically adjustable passenger seat, adaptive headlights, LED foglights with cornering function, a crystal gear knob, ambient lighting and heated washer nozzles.

This is the entry-level diesel, and the engine that will make most sense for the majority of private buyers. It's a frugal choice, and while its acceleration won’t exactly squash you back in your seat (0-62mph takes 8.2sec), it has more than enough mid-rev oomph for easygoing progress.
