Volvo has recently shown its new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, the V90 wagon, and it’s just as much of a looker as the S90 and XC90.
With the V90 the Swedish automaker wants to carry forward the rich heritage of being considered by most of the clients as the definitive estate (wagon) brand. The 2017 Volvo V90 continues the modern, handsome design language of he XC90 crossover, and the S90 sedan. The car’s bodysides are relatively plain and its roof less sloped than some modern cars, but it’s a very attractive package. The overall impression is more mature than the only wagon Volvo currently sells in the U.S., the V60.
The Swedish style that so endeared US customers to the XC90 and S90, is also present in the V90's cabin. Wood trim spruces up the dashboard and door panels, a large vertical touchscreen dominates the center stack, and fully digital instruments greet the driver behind the minimalist three-spoke steering wheel. The 2017 Volvo V90 will offer the same set of advanced safety features as the XC90 and S90, including run-off-road protection, pre-collision braking, and the company’s Pilot Assist semi-autonomous highway driving feature.
