Which V90 Cross Country does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating3.5 / 5
There's plenty to like about the 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country. Beyond the good looks and clean, modern design, it offers incredibly comfortable seats and a host of technology features from the tabletlike infotainment system to a suite of driver aids. That said, we've dinged the Cross Country for a harsher ride and noisier cabin than we expect from a luxury vehicle at this price point and for feeling a little less sturdy and solid than some similarly priced competitors.
It's also worth noting that while the Cross Country comes with added ride height, not much extra effort has gone into enhancing its off-road capability. The all-wheel-drive system certainly makes it functional enough, but there's not much in the way of extra traction control settings or hardware to help the car cope with primitive conditions. Of course, that puts it in the same league as most SUVs, so it's certainly not less competent than most of the competitive field.
If what you're looking for is luxury with supreme off-road ability, it's worth biting the SUV bullet and going with the Land Rover Discovery. The Disco is a little over an inch longer than the V90, but it is more capable off-road and has the added bonus of a third row of seating. Some appealing wagons are also available. The Audi A4 Allroad is smaller than the V90, but it provides a more engaging driving experience and some of the best technology features and integration on the market. If your plans don't call for leaving paved surfaces, the eminently classy Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon provides a stunning all-around luxury experience along with all-wheel drive to handle inclement weather.
Trim levels & features
The 2018 Volvo V90 is an all-wheel-drive station wagon with seating for five. It's available in three trim levels, starting with the still well-equipped but less powerful T5, and moving up to the more powerful T6 and finally the specialized T6 Volvo Ocean Race.
Two engines are available. The T5 comes standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, while the T6 and Ocean Race trims come with a turbocharged and supercharged engine making 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. All trim levels come standard with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic.
Standard equipment on the V90 Cross Country T5 includes LED headlights with automatic high beams, 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic wipers, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a hands-free liftgate, and proximity entry with push-button start. Inside, the T5 comes with power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and dual-zone climate control. Infotainment duties fall to a 9-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio, navigation, USB inputs, and a 10-speaker sound system.
The T6 upgrades to adaptive headlights, headlight washer nozzles, 19-inch alloy wheels, and noise-insulating laminated side windows. Interior upgrades include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a reconfigurable digital gauge cluster.
The new T6 Volvo Ocean Race trim adds a score of visual tweaks including 20-inch wheels, special white paint and orange accents, unique interior trim with orange piping, a body-colored roof box, front parking sensors, waterproof floor mats, an air suspension, four-zone climate control, and extra USB ports for the rear seats.
Standard safety features and driver aids for all trims include blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, a drowsy driver warning system, and an adaptive cruise control system.
The T6's gauge cluster display and upgraded headlights, along with four-zone climate control and heated front seats, are available as optional upgrades for the T5. Other notable options include the Convenience package, which adds heated washer nozzles, a surround-view parking camera system, a head-up display, and parking assist with front parking sensors. Other optional upgrades are 20-inch alloy wheels, a head-up display, and a premium Bowers & Wilkins sound system. Integrated booster seats are available for the rear seats.
For the T6, the Luxury package adds ventilated front seats with massaging backrests and power-adjustable thigh extensions, heated rear seats, four-zone climate control, rear side-door sun shades, and upgraded leather upholstery. Air suspension is a stand-alone upgrade for the T6.

2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country for Sale
The 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country is a premium five-passenger wagon based on the V90 wagon, which, in turn, is derived from the S90 sedan. Think of the V90 Cross Country as an exceptionally handsome station wagon with a hint of off-road prowess. Unlike many Volvos, the V90 Cross Country is available in just one trim level, though it is very well-equipped. Buyers who want more luxury can tap into two option packages and a handful of individual options, but all the hardware and capability are baked right into the base model.
The V90 Cross Country is offered only in three trim levels: the well-equipped but less powerful T5, the more powerful T6, and the unique Volvo Ocean Race trim level. Two four-cylinder engines are available: the one in the T5 produces 250 horsepower while the one in the other trims makes 316 hp. Both engines are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is standard on the V90 Cross Country. Additional standard features abound: All models are equipped with Pilot Assist semiautonomous driving, a hands-free tailgate, heated seats and a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Plenty of upgrades are available for the V90 Cross Country. You can equip seats with massage, a power cargo cover, extended leather upholstery, rear sunshades, a cooled glovebox and four-zone climate control. Other options include a Convenience package, which includes a surround-view camera, heated washer nozzles and a parking assistance feature. Other available extras are a Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system, a head-up display, and adaptive dampers with a load-leveling rear air suspension system.
To back up the off-road looks, Volvo tweaked the V90's stability control and power steering system and added a hill descent control system. The V90 is capable of light off-roading, although opting for the larger 20-inch wheels will make that a dodgier proposition.
Volvo wagons have long attracted a dedicated and passionate fan base. It's likely that the V90 Cross Country, too, will enjoy a committed following. Whether that translates into strong residual values remains to be seen, though we expect the Premium package-equipped models to outperform those that lack it. As always, Edmunds is here to help with shopping tools that can make buying a 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country a quick and rewarding process.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
