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.

This plug-in hybrid model is quite expensive as a private buy, but it attracts very low company car tax bills, thanks to its tiny CO2 emissions. As a bonus, if you do plenty of short journeys punctuated by recharges, you’ll barely have to put any fuel in it, but on longer trips economy plummets.
