Volvo and estates go together like Ikea and flat pack furniture, and the V90 is the most capacious of its current crop.

It's based on the Swedish carmaker's large executive saloon, the S90, and while it's actually a couple of centimetres shorter than that car (for styling reasons), the V90 still has a large boot behind its five seats. Engine choices are a pair of 2.0-litre diesels, a 2.0-litre petrol or a powerful petrol-electric plug-in hybrid.

The V90's executive car roots mean it’s priced against premium models from the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes, namely the established and very capable A6 Avant , the 5 Series Touring and the Mercedes E-Class Estate.

Buyers of these sort of estates aren’t just looking for space; they also want a comfortable ride, a sharp drive, strong engines and generous levels of luxury and equipment.

Read on over the next few pages to see if the Volvo V90 cuts it in these areas, and to get our in-depth impressions, along with our recommendations for which trim level and engine to choose.
