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.

With 247bhp and a 0-62mph time of 6.6sec, it’s certainly not slow, but you do still have to rev this engine quite hard if you want to make rapid progress. Ultimately, both B4s and the Recharge T6 plug-in hybrid make more sense.
