What used Volvo V90 estate will I get for my budget?
Around £26,000 is the entry point for the V90, at the time of writing, this buying you a 2016 car with an average mileage for the year, with a full history, most probably privately. Up your budget to between £27,000 and £30,000 and you should find plenty of 2016-2017 full-history cars, all from Volvo dealers, with low mileages and with your choice of engines and trims.
In theory, the most economical V90 is the 2.0-litre T8 petrol-electric hybrid model. This has a claimed average fuel consumption figure of 141.2mpg, 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 claimed average of 62.8mpg, while the more powerful 2.0 D5 claims 57.6mpg. Cars registered before April 2017 will find their road tax bills low, while it’s worth noting that those registered after that date and costing more than £40,000 when new will attract an extra VED tax until the car is five years old.
Volvo offers a variety of service plans for used cars that can fix the price of parts, labour and oil for up to six years, and this can be paid for on an interest-free monthly basis.
