Volvo will not take part in the upcoming Paris salon but uses the internet space to launch its newest adventure car. This is the V90 Cross Country wagon, which will be available in the markets later this year.
The Volvo V90 Cross Country is based on the V90 and uses the manufacturer’s new Scalable Product Architecture Platform. The main differences from the standard wagon are focused on design and suspension. The chassis is raised by 65 mm, offering ground clearance from the 218 mm segment. For comparison, the Audi A6 Allroad is 185 mm.
As for the design, the new V90 Cross Country retains its donor’s elegant lines by demonstrating the usual vehicle components. Fender guards, different bumpers with additional safety components, enlarged thresholds, unique rims, and “Cross Country” designations are seen.
The saloon seems to have remained unchanged compared to the Volvo V90, relying on luxurious materials, advanced technology and high comfort.
Currently, Volvo does not reveal any specific data on the technical characteristics of the V90. The press release states only that the model has been tested in some of the world’s most ferocious locations – from secret testing facilities in the cold north of Sweden, where temperatures regularly reach -40 degrees Celsius to the burning deserts of Arizona.
We can expect the SUV to get the same units as the Volvo V90. These are 4-cylinder engines from the Drive-E family. They have a volume of 2.0 liters, with gasoline developing 254 and 320 hp, and diesel – 190 and 235 hp.
The production of the V90 Cross Country is scheduled to begin this fall at the company’s plant in Torslanda, Sweden. See more details in the coming weeks.
