Volvo created the V90 Cross Country from the stunning V90 wagon by raising the ride height and adding larger, softer tires and exterior body cladding. Along the way, its stability control, all-wheel drive and electric power steering systems were recalibrated and it received a hill descent control function. Save for the latter, those changes were necessary to accommodate the new tires, but in the bargain they improved the V90 Cross Country's ability to traverse rough roads. Volvo's current design language is truly stunning, and the V90 Cross Country only burnishes its appeal.
