Ownership cost

What used Volvo V90 estate will I get for my budget?

Around a modest £15,000 is the entry point for the V90, this buying you a 2016 car with an average to high mileage for the year, with a full history, most probably privately. Up your budget to between £16,000 and £20,000 and you should find plenty of 2017 and 2018 cars with an average mileage for the year and full history from an independent dealer. Up the dosh to between £20,000 and £25,000 and you'll have plenty of good 2019 full-history cars, all from Volvo dealers, with low mileages and with your choice of engines and trims. For 2020 examples or newer, expect to pay upwards of £28,000.

The V90’s newer line-up of mild-hybrid powertrains are even more economical, with engines such as the petrol B4P claiming a WLTP figure of 40.9mpg and 158g/km of CO2, while the diesel B4D claims a WLTP figure of 49.5mp and 149g/km of CO2. The T6 Recharge is the greenest, however, with a claimed WLTP figure of 134mpg and 47g/km of CO2.

Most cars registered before 1 April 2017 will have road tax bills significantly lower than for those registered after that date, especially for examples that cost more than £40,000 when new. This is because they will attract an extra VED charge that will need to be paid until the car is over six years old. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information. 

Current charges, for cars registered after 1 April 2017, are £155 per year for petrol and diesel vehicles, while hybrid owners will be charged £145 per year – pure electric vehicles continue to be exempt from VED. First-year car tax rates, which depend on CO2 emissions, will be higher. The latest line-up of V90 engines fall into various first-year tax brands, ranging from £220 to £895. The supplementary luxury tax is currently £335 per year.

Volvo doesn't have specific fixed-price servicing costs, but main dealer servicing is competitive with other premium brand manufacturers.
