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

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.

If you’re dead set against a diesel but can't stretch to the Recharge T6 plug-in hybrid, this 194bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol is your best option. It's pretty quick in a straight line (0-62mph takes 7.9sec) and officially capable of averaging around 40mpg, but you'll need to drive it very carefully to hit that in the real world.
