Kelley Blue Book's Accolades Go Off-Grid for the New 2018 Volvo V90

The auto research and market value experts had no shortage of appreciation for our flagship Volvo wagon, its hallmark Scandinavian design offering all the trimmings and trappings one could hope to find in a new luxury vehicle.

2018 Volvo V90, exclaimed the enthusiastic reviewer, has brought together upscale amenities with the cutting edge of safety features and driver-assist tech, and these are just the beginning. Finding the new V90 Cross Country a "standout" among luxury SUVs, with a sophisticated drive reminiscent of its S90 luxury sedan sibling, the specialist was quick to point out the prowess of its standard all-wheel drive, delivering a ride quality neutral and well-balanced, yet more than up to the task of less-happy trails. Factor in a towering 8.3 inches of ground clearance, and that trek surely promises to take off. In fact, KBB calls the 2018 V90 wagon a capable rival to overtake its fellow Volkswagen Alltrack, Subaru Outback, and Audi A4 Allroad competition.

But a few favorite features nonetheless stood out. Kelle Blue Book lauded 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country for the high-performance road feel offered by its 316-horsepower, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, which delivered fuel economy to go the distance against the less powerful: up to 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, to be sure. Plus, the wagon's Eco, Comfort, Off-Road and Dynamic modes, dovetailing standard hill-descent control, showed it readier than ever to head from the highway cruise to more rugged venues off the beaten path.

From there, a host of intelligent technologies for the ride become icing on the luxury cake. Volvo V90 combines the situational awareness of standards like Pilot Assist, blind-spot and driver-alert monitoring, and lane-departure warning with help along the way from a road sign information display and City Safety pre-collision braking system. The lap of luxury comes along for the ride, too, in the form of standard heated leather seats, a panoramic moonroof, and control at your fingertips thanks to a 10-speaker 224-watt audio and infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
