    Very good looking V90. Liking it so much right now, it even could be my next :D;)

    Cute but I prefer the regular V90 over its raised ride height brother.

      If I have to pick between the XC90 and this, I will take this in an instant.

        Exceptional as expected. Impressive how Volvo executes practicality that's equally attractive. (y)

          That E-Class All Terrain is going to have be something spectacular to top this.

            From Volvo's current renaissance, I've liked all their recent releases and was looking forward to the XC version of the sleek V90. However, something isn't sitting right with me with his. It's as if the elegance seen in the other 90 series cars is lost by being lifted and then fitted with such comically large wheels. It kinda reminds me of a monster truck.

            I am exaggerating, of course. ;)

            Maybe I need to see it with smaller wheels.

            (I just noticed the red wagon is a Volvo 740)

            The new V90 is available for testdrives. I'll see if I have some time to go see a Volvo dealer this weekend.

              Volvo V90 Cross Country

              Volvo Cars has unveiled the new Volvo V90 Cross Country, completing its 90 Series line-up.

              Since the introduction of the first Cross Country almost 20 years ago, Volvo Cars has become synonymous with the rugged all-road, all-weather product category, with a growing stable of Cross Country models.

              Volvo Cars' Cross Country models fulfil an increasingly important part of the Swedish automaker's product portfolio as luxury car buyers seek out a more experienced-based lifestyle that occasionally takes them off the beaten track.

              "The V90 Cross Country takes the elegance of the V90 and transforms it into an all-road car that delivers safety, comfort and performance in a capable and adventurous package," said HÃ¥kan Samuelsson, President & CEO, Volvo Car Group.

              With some of the harshest winters on the planet and over 77 per cent of the country covered in forest and lakes, Sweden is the natural place to develop and test extreme durability and all-weather capable cars. This hard-won expertise represents a large part of Volvo Cars' heritage, reflected in the company's Cross Country model line-up.

              "Our cars are well known for their safety, strength and durability. With All-Wheel Drive, increased ride height, and a chassis optimised for comfort and control in all weather and road conditions, the new V90 Cross Country takes our versatile V90 estate and adds the heart of an explorer," said Dr Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research & Development at Volvo Cars.

              With Volvo Cars' Scalable Product Architecture providing the underpinnings, the V90 Cross Country has undergone rigorous testing to ensure that it can survive the extremes in which it will ultimately find itself.

              From secret testing facilities in the frozen north of Sweden, where temperatures regularly hit -40 degrees centigrade to the searing desert heat of Arizona, where Volvo Cars performs its high temperature testing program, the V90 Cross Country has been built to last.

              With a design that clearly stands out from the crowd, the V90 Cross Country's rugged character belies a sumptuous interior that delivers a level of luxury uncommon in the segment, combining all the benefits of the connectivity and entertainment features that were launched with the new S90 and V90, including a high-end sound system by Bowers & Wilkins.

              The Volvo V90 Cross Country's exterior design cues communicate the powerful and dynamic capability that the car exemplifies, while offering the flexibility to choose from both rugged and elegant expressions.

              "Designing a Volvo Cross Country is not a styling exercise, a plastic job. It is based on honest capability. The Volvo V90 Cross Country brings a surprising and intriguing combination of a strong, powerful exterior and a luxurious, Scandinavian interior. It will continue the genuine tradition of the Volvo Cross Country with a new recipe: The blend of powerful off-road capability in a most elegant, sophisticated, tailored wagon suit," said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Cars.

              The new V90 Cross Country takes this well-established segment to a new level of comfort-inspired capability. Production of the car is set to start in autumn 2016 at Volvo Cars Torslanda Plant in Sweden.

                    It's should have air suspension like the A6 Allroad where you can raise and lower the suspension at will.

                    I only have one problem with the V90, the Volvo has a lot less loadspace than the competition, less than the E Class and A6. It's even less than the V70 it's replacing.

                    Wow it looks fantastic, even better than the standard V90.
