What You Will Like

Both the S90 is a welcome replacement for the S80 in Volvo's mid-size luxury spot. It goes head to head in a crowded segment with some of Europe's best, such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, and Audi A6, along with players from Japan like the Hyundai Genesis and Lexus GS, not to mention America's chief contingent, the Cadillac CTS and XTS. The V90 builds on the S90's styling and luxury by adding a wagon version for those requiring greater flexibility. It easily competes with the E-Class as well as other luxury crossovers like the Cadillac XT5 and the Jaguar E-Pace by offering dramatic styling and advanced safety features for which Volvo is known.

What's New For 2018

For 2018 the Volvo S90 and V90 grow by around four and a half inches in length. This means in rear seat room has improved considerably. Both 90 models now offers acres of space back there, enough to compete with long wheelbase versions of the Audi S8 and the BMW 7-Series.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


Introduced for 2018, Volvo V90 is the brand’s latest premium wagon, sharing engines, structure and features with the S90 sedan and XC90 crossover. It’s the longest and largest wagon currently sold in the U.S.

The 2018 Volvo V90 is part of a chain of V-series wagons that go back a long way with Volvo, usually related to S sedans with similar or identical powertrains and features.

2018 V90 wagons come in a range of models, including Cross Country models that sit taller and are capable of modest off-highway duty.

Two distinct engine choices are offered. In T5 models, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder develops 250 horsepower. T6 models adopt a 316-horsepower version of that four-cylinder engine, which is both turbocharged and supercharged. Each engine mates with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

V90 wagons come in several trim levels: R-Design and Inscription, in addition to a base model and an Ocean Race Edition. The latter commemorates Volvo’s connection to maritime racing.

Front-wheel drive is standard on the base T5 model. T6 versions and Cross Country wagons come only with all-wheel drive.

More flamboyantly designed and sporty-looking than most wagons, V90s demonstrate clean Scandinavian elegance. V90 Cross Country models have higher ground clearance and can be fitted with lower-body cladding that provides a more rugged appearance.

No crash-test data has been released by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, the latter agency gave the related S90 sedan several Good scores, plus Superior frontal crash prevention, though headlights were deemed problematic.

Advanced safety technology has long been a Volvo hallmark, which continues with the V90. Standard safety features include blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision prevention, and adaptive cruise control. Volvo’s City Safety object-detection system can now warn of large animals ahead.

An updated version of Volvo’s semi-autonomous driving system, introduced on the 2016 XC90 crossover, is standard on V90 wagons. Pilot Assist allows the wagon to accelerate, slow down, and come to a halt on its own. The wagon can also steer itself between highway lane markings, and detect road edges. The driver cannot take his or her hands off the steering wheel for more than about 15 seconds at a time.

V90 Cross Country wagons can be found and purchased at Volvo dealerships in the usual way. For regular V90 wagons, Volvo turned to a pre-order procedure, shipping a vehicle only after the purchase has been completed.


V90 T5 R-Design FWD ($49,950) comes with the 250-horsepower engine, leather seat trim, a panoramic moonroof, 12.3-inch touchscreen, blind-spot information system, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, collision mitigation, 19-inch wheels, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and navigation. T5 Inscription FWD ($51,950) adds such features as a hands-free tailgate and sunshades. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

T6 R-Design AWD ($55,950) and T6 Inscription AWD ($57,950) include the 316-hp engine.

T5 Cross Country AWD ($52,300) has taller ground clearance and rugged-look detailing, with the 250-horsepower engine. T6 Cross Country AWD ($56,100) substitutes the 316-horsepower engine. T6 Cross Country Ocean Race Edition AWD ($60,500) adds design elements to mark Volvo’s tie to maritime racing.


More than most automakers, Volvo still knows how to create a brilliant-styled wagon, without adding complexity. Bodysides manage to maintain a soft, organic appearance, while front- and rear-end elements suggest kinship to the company’s heritage. Hints of the celebrated P1800 sport coupe from the Sixties can even be discerned.

Distinctively complex LED lighting arrays flank the grille, ahead of a long hood. A blacked-out rear hatch emphasizes the tapering bodysides and the enticing roofline. Cross Country wagons differ primarily in plastic fender flares and modestly-elevated ride height.


Not only is the V90 roomy and commendably comfortable, its starkly simple cabin serves as a model of Scandinavian design. Some elements and attributes of the cleanly upright layout are shared with Volvo’s highly praised XC90 crossover.

Highlights include wood and metal detailing, a sublime infotainment screen, and a digital instrument cluster. Welcome levels of utility and flexibility blend with an overall sense of quality.

Seating excellence has been a Volvo tradition, and it’s immediately evident here. Front seats are impressively supportive and broadly adjustable, with long cushions. Back seats aren’t far behind, either, though door openings seem somewhat constricted for a full-size vehicle. Leather-trimmed seats are standard, with the prospect for upgrading to softer-yet upholstery.

Split rear seatbacks flip forward readily, creating a flat floor for the spacious cargo hold. However, the shape of the hatch restricts cargo-area height at the rear. An underfloor compartment permits additional small-item storage.

Active noise cancellation helps keep the cabin pleasantly quiet. Over choppy pavement, V90 riders are likely to notice more road noise than passengers in an S90 sedan.

Driving Impressions

Even though no version of the V90 qualifies as sincerely sporty, Volvo’s largest wagon promises a relaxing, upscale road experience. Quiet and comfortable, each wagon yields a soft ride, while virtually silencing the world outside. In doing so, the V90 strikes a balance between utility and performance.

Little pitching of the body occurs when traversing lumpy pavement and heaving surfaces. Again, the V90 reaches for the middle ground, promising and delivering a ride that’s well-controlled as well as providing a sense of plush motoring.

In T6 form, the V90 accelerates to 60 mpg in about 5.5 seconds – not quite startling, but ready to satisfy all but the most demanding drivers. With the 250-horsepower T5 engine, performing that feat approaches 7 seconds. Volvo’s smooth-shifting automatic transmission adds to the pleasure.

Even with the driving mode set to Dynamic, fitted with Volvo’s available air suspension, the T6 wagon feels rather softly sprung. Handling proves satisfying, as the V90 suspension behaves evenly as well as predictably. Accelerating out of a corner can be accomplished gracefully, with a feeling of finesse.

Fuel economy isn’t bad, considering vehicle size and weight. The V90 T5 is EPA-rated at 24/34 mpg City/Highway, or 27 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers the estimate to 22/31/25 mpg. The all-wheel-drive T6 Cross Country is EPA-rated at 23/31 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined.


In its current corporate guise, Volvo may not quite warrant the all-out luxury status of some competitive premium-level automakers. Regardless, the new V90 wagon has plenty to offer in terms of style, generous feature content, and plenty of interior space. Each version is amply-equipped, infotainment systems excel, and numerous options are available. Cross Country variants stand a bit taller and look ready for action, but off-roading aspirations are relatively modest.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
