How it copes with people and clutter

The Volvo V90 is superb at accommodating four adults and the Cross Country version changes nothing. Those in the front are treated to a broad interior with loads of head and leg room, and it’s the same story in the rear.

There’s class-leading knee room, and if you're tall and sat behind someone with the front seat set well back, you'll still be left with room to slouch. Head room is also great, whether you add the optional panoramic sunroof or not, and the rear bench is wider than in the Audi A6 Allroad (good to know if you ever need to fit three adults in the back).

You find loads of storage spaces throughout the interior, including cup holders, large door bins and a big glovebox. There are also a few nooks and crannies for your odds and sods.

It's also a match for the A6 Allroad's luggage space. We managed to fit eight carry-on-sized cases below each car's tonneau cover, which is pretty good going. The V90's low loading lip and standard powered tailgate (with gesture control) also make life that bit easier.

There's a ski hatch for when you have a long, thin load to carry and when you fold down the V90's 60/40-split-rear seats there's even more room for a trip to the tip. It's worth noting, though, that the Mercedes E-Class Estate has an even bigger boot, which includes a vast amount of under-floor storage. It also comes with more practical 40/20/40 split rear seats.
