Review

The Volvo V90 is a practical and classy choice that rides and handles well if you specify it with the optional adaptive dampers. Just bear in mind that the BMW 5 Series Touring offers superior refinement and a more user-friendly infotainment system, while virtually all the V90's rivals have bigger boots.

get the best price

This may be the entry-level trim, but we reckon it’s all you need. Dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, adaptive cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, a well-specified infotainment system and heated leather seats all come as standard. The only things you’ll probably want to add are metallic paint and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

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.
