This is not something with which we are normally dealing, but it’s really good vehicle, so we need to introduce some facts about it. The prototype of the 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country shows that the Swedish carmaker works on the new station wagon, yet we have fold out the details, which indicate this will be one of the best models in the segment.
2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country Gets Off-Road Characteristics
The 2018 V90 Cross Country won’t just some ordinary wagon, but the true off-roader. The vehicle will use a same platform as the regular V90, yet the suspension system will be reworked and adjusted to bad terrains. It’s pretty evident that the car gets a higher ride height as well as bigger wheels along with wider fenders, so it is really clear that this will be all-terrain wagon. In addition, the carmaker plans to offer just the all-wheel drive, but a wide range of engine options.
Speaking of which, the 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country will offer some amazing drivetrains. For a start, there will be a completely new 2.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter engine. The unit can easily deliver 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. If this isn’t enough, you will be able to choose an amazing hybrid powertrain that combines a 2.0-liter Drive-E four-cylinder gas engine with a motor-generator. The system delivers 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque, which powers all four wheels through the eight-speed automatic transmission.
Price and Arrival
This really amazing station wagon will make its debut early next year. However, the car manufacturer hasn’t say anything whether they will introduce the 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country to the North American public. How we see it, the car will compete with Audi’s A6 Allroad and Subaru’s Outback, so it could be interesting to US drivers as well. Anyway, the first estimates indicate pretty high starting price of around $60K, but keeping in mind what the wagon could offer, it’s not too high at all.
