What Car? says...
Volvo and estate cars go together like love and marriage, horses and carriages, and strawberries and cream, and this Volvo V90 is the most capacious of its current crop.
These days, though, the Swedish brand isn't content with simply building estates that major on practicality and safety – it's starting to become known for pretty and chic cars too. That leaves us with one big question: Do they still offer the same practicality and protection, or are they now more about style than function?
In terms of rivals, the V90 is up against the ever-classy Audi A6 Avant, BMW 5 Series Touring and Mercedes E-Class Estate, which are all available for similar money. Over the next few pages of this review, we'll look at whether it delivers in all the key areas against that formidable line-up.
If at the end you decide the Volvo V90 – or a new car of any make and model – is the one for you, be sure to check out the free What Car? New Car Buying service where you could potentially save thousands without the need to haggle with one of the tempting Volvo V90 deals.
