As promised a few days ago, one of the top 10 automotive stories of the summer has finally been revealed. The all-new Volvo V90 Cross Country is a more rugged and more capable version of the V90 wagon, which itself serves as a more versatile alternative to the equally new S90 luxury sedan.
“The V90 Cross Country takes the elegance of the V90 and transforms it into an all-road car that delivers safety, comfort, and performance in a capable and adventurous package,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President & CEO, Volvo Car Group.
With all-wheel drive, increased ride height, and a chassis optimized for comfort and control in all weather and road conditions, the new V90 Cross Country essentially adds the heart of an explorer. Meanwhile, its rugged character belies a sumptuous interior that delivers a level of luxury uncommon in the segment, according to Volvo. Look for world-class connectivity and entertainment features including a high-end Bowers & Wilkins sound system.
A great match for Canadian drivers (the car underwent testing in the frozen north of Sweden, where temperatures regularly hit -40 degrees), the Volvo V90 Cross Country will arrive in showrooms in the first quarter of 2017 starting at $61,900.
