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

This is the most popular trim level, thanks to its more aggressive styling and it's definitely worth considering. It adds 19in alloys, sports seats, metal interior trims, leather/ nubuck seat trim, an electric driver's seat, blind spot monitoring and privacy glass.

This plug-in hybrid model is quite expensive as a private buy but it attracts lower company car tax bills thanks to its tiny CO2 emissions and official 35-mile electric range. You will need to keep the battery regularly topped up to achieve the official fuel economy because it'll do around 30mpg on petrol power alone. It's capable of 0-62mph in 5.9sec, so it's not slow.
