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.

With 247bhp and a 0-62mph time of 6.9sec (slower if you buy the four-wheel-drive Cross Country) it’s pokey and it pulls well from low revs. It's the entry-level engine in Cross Country. If you're a company car driver looking to save tax, though, you should check out the Recharge T6 plug-in hybrid instead. Officially, the B5 (P) will average 40mpg, which is about the same as the less powerful B4 (P). We saw 30-35mpg from the four-wheel-drive Cross Country and front-wheel-drive versions should better that.
