Review

There is a lot to enjoy in owning a Volvo V90 Cross Country. It's quiet and rides very well, making it great for long-distance travel, the interior is rather beautifully finished, it's very spacious, particularly in the back seats, and it's fantastically well equipped. However, it's a lot more money than the standard V90, it depreciates alarmingly quickly, and overall the BMW 5 Series Touring is a better estate car.

get the best price

This may be the entry-level trim, but we reckon it’s all you need. Dual-zone climate control, a powered tailgate with gesture control, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, leather seats, heated front seats, keyless entry and start, automatic lights and wipers and a well-specified infotainment system all come as standard.

This is the only diesel. It's RDE2 compliant and officially averages 50mpg. While its acceleration won’t exactly squash you back in your seat (0-62mph takes 8.5sec), it has more than enough mid-rev oomph for easygoing progress.
