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 is the most popular trim level, thanks to its more aggressive styling; you get chunky 19in alloys, a sports steering wheel, sports pedals, sports seats, metal interior highlights, lowered sport suspension and privacy glass.

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 7.6sec), but don't expect particularly good fuel economy, despite it being a mild hybrid.
