Which V90 does Edmunds recommend?

The V90 Inscription T6 will suit most buyers. The T6's twin-charged four-cylinder engine (supercharged and turbocharged) delivers a boost in power that pairs nicely with the V90's refined ride and handling. It also comes standard with all-wheel drive for sure-footed capability in all seasons.

Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Sleek wagon style with a decent amount of utility
  • Comes standard with many driver safety aids
  • Premium interior materials and design
  • Touchscreen system may be overwhelming
  • All-wheel drive only available in upper T6 trim
  • For 2019, the V90 gets more standard features
  • Part of the second V90 generation introduced for 2018

Overall rating

Luxury wagons are a niche within a niche: a premium car priced beyond the reach of many buyers, wrapped in a body style that few buyers seem to want. Yet the small legion of wagon enthusiasts keeps the flames lit, and Volvo is happy to oblige with the 2019 V90. Volvo, of course, has a rich history in family wagons, using them as launching pads for innovative safety features and establishing a unique style distinct from its European competitors.

Those expecting a retro Volvo wagon experience, however, may be in for a shock. The V90, like the related S90 sedan and XC90 SUV, is steeped in tech and style. The V90 shares the same design and materials quality, resulting in an interior anchored by a large central touchscreen display and highlighted by classy wood, leather and aluminum accents. In addition to the daily shuffle of family duties, the V90 excels at long-distance driving with its superior ergonomics. The V90 even offers fold-down booster seats for the outer two rear-seat positions to help young passengers transition from child safety seats to regular seats.

Crossover SUVs tend to make more sense than wagons for many buyers — it's hard to argue the practical benefits of a taller cabin and expansive cargo space. But wagons represent a solid middle ground, offering enough passenger space and cargo room, without the big, boxy bulk of most mainstream crossovers. And being a stylish standout in a small segment, the V90 also provides a measure of exclusivity that few SUVs can offer.

2019 Volvo V90 models

All 2019 Volvo V90s come very well equipped, so you're basically paying for powertrains. The T5 starts off the lineup with the lowest power and front-wheel drive. Some may find the T5 underpowered, especially when fully loaded. The T6 provides more power and all-wheel drive.

The R-Design and Inscription versions of the T5 are equipped to nearly the same level and differ in interior materials, seat designs and colors. They both are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (250 hp, 258 lb-ft) driving only the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Standard features for both include 19-inch wheels, roof rails, a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights and foglights, a hands-free liftgate, keyless entry, push-button ignition, four-zone climate control, a cabin air cleaner and power-adjustable front seats. On the tech front, you get a configurable gauge cluster display, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a premium Harman Kardon audio system.

Also standard is a full battery of active driver aids, including blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and lane keeping assist.

On the Inscription, Volvo throws in heated and ventilated front seats. The R-Design features a unique sport suspension calibration and comes standard with paddle shifters and sport front seats.

Optionally, you can add the Advanced package, which includes adaptive LED headlights, high-pressure headlight washers, a head-up display, a surround-view camera system, and an automated parallel or perpendicular parking system. Various stand-alone options include an air suspension, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a premium Bowers & Wilkins sound system.

The T6 R-Design and T6 Inscription are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's both turbocharged and supercharged. At maximum power, it produces 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. And unlike the T5, the T6 comes with all-wheel drive. Otherwise, the T5 and the T6 are essentially the same inside and out.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Volvo V90 Cross Country T6 AWD (twin-charged 2.0L inline-4 | 8-speed automatic | AWD).

Note that the Cross Country model, reviewed separately, is essentially a standard V90 with additional ground clearance and reinforced lower body panels designed for moderate off-road driving. The Cross Country's taller height affects visibility and getting in and out of the cabin, but otherwise shares most of its traits with the standard wagon.

Driving

The V90 provides ample oomph for the daily commute along with predictable and confident stopping power. A soft ride makes for somewhat floaty handling, but you'd only notice if you're trying to set a lap record. This smooth-operating luxury wagon delivers the driving experience you'd expect.

Acceleration

A turbo- and supercharged four-cylinder sounds complicated, but Volvo's runs effortlessly on the road. It reacts quickly when you hit the gas and delivers strong power at low engine speeds. The V90 has no problem merging onto the freeway or making a pass. It exhibited respectable acceleration during testing.

Braking

The brake pedal reacts predictably, and the articulation of its short travel and light effort allows you to come to a stop without jerking back. During repeat simulated 60-0 mph emergency stops, this wagon stayed stable and confident.

Steering

It's easy to keep the wheel straight at freeway speeds, and though there isn't much feedback, the wheel feels direct and accurate. Steering effort is light in Comfort mode and much heavier in Dynamic. Safety systems can make the wheel feel unnatural as they make adjustments for you.

Drivability

You might get an occasional clunky gear change, but the V90 operates just as smoothly as you'd expect from a luxury car. The engine stop-start system is generally smooth but can hesitate if you need to move quickly. At a more relaxed pace, the upshifts are so well executed that they're nearly imperceptible.

Comfort

The feel of the interior matches the chic design, provided you tick the right options. We recommend the premium leather, the powerful seat massage and the air suspension, but skip the 20-inch wheels if you prioritize ride quality over style. Smaller wheels should reduce the impacts and thunks we noticed.

Seat comfort

The excellent front seats provide a wide range of adjustments (10-way) and a powerful massage feature with multiple settings. Dialing in the right settings is easy, and drivers of all shapes and sizes will find comfort over long drives. The center rear seat is upright and firm, best for little ones.

Noise & vibration

Moderate to heavy use of the accelerator pedal brings some engine noise inside, but the sound doesn't inspire excitement. Wind, road and tire noise is kept to a minimum. The body and interior make noise over rough roads and big bumps, a disappointing amount of it for a luxury car.

Climate control

While we typically don't like touchscreen controls, you only need to set the V90's climate settings once. The powerful system always keeps the interior at the right temperature — just set it and forget it. Seat ventilation makes some noise, but passengers will appreciate how well it works.

Interior

The unique design makes a good first impression, but the glossy black plastic quickly attracts smudges. Still, this is an elegant-looking and pleasing place to sit, a sensation bolstered by easy entry and exit, intuitive controls, a commanding view of the road ahead, and a strong sense of spaciousness.

Ease of use

The V90 hosts a clean and intuitive instrument panel. The touchscreen manages most features and has an easy learning curve. The physical controls are logical. The cruise control interface will seem backward to some, changing by 5 mph increments when you tap and 1 mph increments when you hold.

Getting in/getting out

The wide range of seat and steering wheel adjustments means there's no compromise between comfort and visibility. All the instrumentation and controls fall within reach and view. Manual tilt-and-telescoping adjustment is unusual for a vehicle at this price, but it's something most people will only notice once.

Roominess

The open cabin feels pretty spacious, a sensation backed up by the ample interior dimensions. Plenty of leg-, headroom and shoulder room means average-size adults won't have difficulty getting comfortable. A 6-foot rear passenger can fit easily in the back seat behind a driver of the same height.

Quality

The interior makes a strong initial impression of quality, but our test car showed premature wear, including scuffs and discoloration on the interior door handles. Cream and white interiors can exacerbate these issues, but they shouldn't happen this soon on a vehicle that costs this much.

Utility

The V90 delivers the versatility you expect from a wagon. It has SUV-rivaling storage space and a host of clever options, such as a grocery bag holder and a steel guard that protects passengers from sliding cargo. The optional two-height rear booster seats are a novel idea. Interior storage is adequate.

Small-item storage

Front occupants have access to a generously sized center console and cupholders. Rear passengers aren't as fortunate, with only a shallow cubby and flip-out cupholders in the center armrest. The door pockets and glovebox are adequate.

Cargo space

The V90's cargo space matches most large SUVs. The cargo cover rises with the liftgate, making loading easier. An optional flip-up grocery bag holder cleverly ensures your eggs won't break on the drive home.

Child safety seat accommodation

The lower anchors sit behind prominent, flippable plastic covers. The somewhat narrow space between the rear seat and cargo area cover means a little squeeze when you're reaching for the seatback anchors.

Technology

The digital displays are clear and easy to read, and phone integration is as simple as plugging in a cable. The high-end optional stereo system is among the finest we've sampled. Most advanced driver aids function well, but we had trouble with lane keeping assist and the auto parking system.

Audio & navigation

The tall center touchscreen is attractive and easy to read and boasts a largely intuitive layout. It's generally quick and responsive but takes too long to switch to the backup camera after starting. The optional Bowers & Wilkins sound system is phenomenal and worth the upgrade.

Smartphone integration

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard. Their displays occupy the touchscreen's lower half, which makes switching audio sources easier, so you can use your preferred navigation app while still listening to the radio.

Driver aids

Adaptive cruise control is stellar, but lane keeping assist often pogos within the lane. The auto parking system has trouble differentiating between parallel and perpendicular parking but works great when it gets it right. The top-view camera is optional and lets you select views independently while parking.

Voice control

The system doesn't understand natural language, so you have to learn certain prefixes to make it work. After topping the learning curve, the system understood most of our commands without issue. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay voice commands work perfectly.

T5 R-Design 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
This car completely surprised me with the options and features it offers and of course the safety is perfection. Great gas mileage, great performance plus it drives itself. The built-in booster seats in the rear are a great option for kids. I have gotten tons of compliments on this car.

T5 Inscription 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Just leased a 2019 V90 Cross Country equipped with the “Advanced” package, which includes a ton of safety features not included as standard with this model. A real pleasure to drive, a solid, well-built wagon not to be confused with a SUV, cross-over, or the like. AWD, and rather mediocre fuel mileage reflects this...mid-20s mpg in city, near 30 on freeways. But the driver/passenger safety and security of this vehicle trumps any other shortfalls, as minimal as they are. More than adequate performance, but can be enhanced by choosing “Dynamic” driving mode. All in all, a quality car with an excellent mfr. pedigree.

Safety

Our experts like the V90 models:

Run-Off Road Mitigation
Scans the road ahead and tenses up the seat belts if it detects the car will run off the road.
Rear Collision Warning
Warns you if an approaching car may cause a rear-end collision. Will flash the lights, tense up the seat belts and apply brakes.
Emergency Brake Lights
Warns rear oncoming drivers when you panic-stop by flashing the brake lights at four pulses per second.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Volvo V90?

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.
