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.

How much does it cost to run a Volvo V90 estate?

In theory, the most economical V90 is the 2.0-litre T8 petrol-electric hybrid model. This has a combined fuel consumption figure of 141.2mpg under the older NEDC tests, with a correspondingly impressive 46g/km CO2 emissions figure. However, this will be achievable only in very limited circumstances, with its real-world figure being considerably more ordinary. If it fits into your lifestyle, though, it’s worth a look.

The 2.0 D4 diesel engine helps the V90 to achieve a combined average of 62.8mpg under the NEDC tests and 50.4mpg under the newer and more realistic WLTP tests, and 119g/km, while the more powerful 2.0 D5 has figures of 57.6mpg under the NEDC tests, and 43.5mpg under the newer and more realistic WLTP tests, and 129g/km.

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 are £150 a year for the standard VED and £325 a year for the supplementary luxury tax. 

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