2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country T6 AWD Inscription Road Test

Sport wagon fans, crossover fans, unite! Volvo has created your ultimate ride.

The new Volvo V90 Cross Country might be the spiritual successor to the XC70, but it's an altogether more advanced, more luxurious, better driving, and better looking vehicle.

Of course, any wagon fan worth their salt loved the XC70 when new too, but that was a long time ago. A very long time ago.

In fact, the first time I tested an XC70 was way back in February of 2005, on a lake in Quebec, ice racing of sorts. We weren't actually racing each other, although pride was up for grabs. The usual gaggle of auto scribes and TV correspondents were given a half dozen or so XC70s to abuse on a makeshift autocross course in the middle of a frozen lake, with orange cones outlining the track and just enough snow around its edges to act as curbs. It was brilliant fun despite the brutally cold day, my fingers feeling the chill while trying to snap photos, but the XC70s kept us warm and plenty entertained Read Full Story
Are you a wagon lover? Or maybe you’d like the versatility of a crossover SUV but still want to maintain the driving dynamics of a compact sport sedan? Either way Volvo has the answer, it’s V60. Available…

2017 Volvo V60 T5 Drive-E AWD Special Edition Road Test

There are wagon fans and then there are those who just don't quite grasp what all the excitement is about. The latter notion is understandable, especially amongst those my age and considerably older who grew up with station wagons as their go-to family haulers and therefore disdain them as much as those raised in minivans dislike their parents' modus operandi, but despite falling into the former camp I remain an ardent follower of wagons.

Of course, today's sport wagons are nothing like the wooden decaled behemoths that wafted down the highways and byways of my youth, their distorted AM radios buzzing War's "Low Rider" through grossly underpowered single-speaker sound systems, or an "8-Track Stereo" if your folks happened to pay more for the luxurious tufted velour upholstery upgrade. In comparison, most of today's mainstream volume brands reserve their "five-door" models for upper trim levels with more options, while premium brands often do likewise because of low take-rates Read Full Story

Volvo asks us to “rediscover your passion in life” in a new V90 Cross Country

The new 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country is upon us, replacing the extremely well proven XC70 with beautiful new sheetmetal, stylish LEDs, a more refined leather-lined interior, state-of-the-art electronics, and a technologically advanced powertrain. With styling that could singlehandedly make wagons cool again, it rolls on the same undercarriage as the multi-award-winning XC90 SUV and S90 mid-size sedan models, and is powered by the same turbocharged and supercharged direct-injection 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine used in top-level trims throughout Volvo's lineup, except for the XC90 SUV that boasts a 400 horsepower plug-in hybrid version of the same power unit in its highest trim level.

In an attempt to draw attention to this all-new model, Volvo has come up with a creative ad campaign designed to lure oftentimes shut-in workers out of doors in order to "rediscover your passion in life".

"You reach a point in life when you have to choose," says Thomas Andersson, Vice President Read Full Story
