ACURA Sport Car | Volvo V90 Cross Country


When it comes to estate cars, Volvo has a rich heritage, as well as the V90 is the latest inward a long line. Not alone is it 1 of the best looking load-luggers on the market, it’s a floor act.
However, these days it’s non plenty to receive got a regular estate automobile inward your attain – y'all withdraw a crossover amongst extra summit as well as to a greater extent than rugged looks.
Admittedly, the nigh these premium 4×4 estates (rivals include the Audi A6 Allroad as well as the novel Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain) are probable to sense is driving into a festival field/car park, only it’s proficient to know what a automobile tin do.
That said, for approximately people out inward the country, it’s essential that your automobile tin likewise handgrip the challenges that extreme conditions produces including snow, ice, floods as well as mud.


As y'all tin run across from my review of the regular estate the V90 is safe, fashionable as well as practical, as well as a refreshingly distinctive option to the High German autobahn expresses which dominate the executive segment.
Frankly the Volvo V90 Cross Country isn’t hugely dissimilar inward many respects. Up front, it continues the distinctive blueprint linguistic communication of the XC90 amongst its Thor’s Hammer LED headlights, patch the profile is long as well as sleek.
Inside, it’s luxurious inward a modern, Scandi agency amongst plenty of calorie-free as well as plush materials. The seats are comfortable as well as the blueprint of the cockpit follows on from the XC90 amongst a slick layout as well as a large 9-inch tablet touchscreen inward the centre console.

There’s plenty of infinite upward front, patch nurture passengers are treated to limo-like legroom, though the middle rider volition receive got to straddle a large transmission tunnel. Needless to say, luggage infinite is excellent, amongst 560 litres available, expanding to 1,526 litres if y'all plication the nurture seats flat.
Volvo’s commitment to security is every bit apparent every bit ever. The V90 Cross Country is packed total of tech as well as stacks of security equipment is available including the latest version of Pilot Assist, which allows semi-autonomous driving on motorways at upward to 80mph.
The nigh obvious differences betwixt the Cross Country as well as the measure V90 are the extra ride summit (65mm), slip plates, all-wheel drive organization as well as tall 235/55 all-weather tyres on 18-inch alloys.

There are 4 drive modes – Eco (most efficient), Comfort (everyday), Off Road as well as Dynamic (high performance).
Switch to Off Road (it industrial plant upward to 25mph) as well as the Cross Country is able to tackle surprisingly challenging terrain every bit long every bit y'all receive got it easy, because ultimately the V90 has larger overhangs as well as less ride summit than an SUV.
I constitute it peculiarly calm tackling steep downhill sections off-road, where the effective loma descent command kicks in.

Under the bonnet there’s a selection of 2 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel fuel engines. The entry-level D4 diesel fuel produces 187bhp, patch the to a greater extent than powerful D5 manages a salubrious 232bhp.
The less powerful unit of measurement on my exam automobile (the £44,105, D4 AWD) had CO2 emissions of 138g/km of CO2 as well as claimed fuel economic scheme of 54.3mpg, a 130mph top speed as well as a 0-62mph fourth dimension of 8.8 seconds.
Both engines come upward amongst an 8-speed automatic gearbox as well as the gear changes are smooth, if non e'er the fastest.
Progress is definitely brisker inward cars amongst the to a greater extent than powerful diesel, only the D4 is to a greater extent than than plenty for most.
Like nigh diesels, engine vibrations is noticeable during quick getaways, only it shortly settles downwardly as well as the full general floor of cabin refinement is impressive.
Apart from its off-road ability, the biggest surprise is that the Cross Country rides beautifully as well as is a superbly refined cruiser amongst good controlled trunk gyre on to a greater extent than flowing roads. Traction is excellent, thank y'all to all-wheel drive.
