Volvo’s new S90 premium saloon, on sale in the summer, will be joined by a V90 estate version before the end of 2016.

The Volvo V90 will debut at the Geneva Motor Show on 1st March, and when it arrives in showrooms is expected to sit alongside the S90 and XC90 SUV to give the Swedish brand a range-topping dynasty to take on the mass hitters of the segment – the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

1602_Volvo_V90_02The Volvo V90 offers a 1,526-litre rear storage space, including compartments under the floor. It is built on the same SPA (Scaleable Product Architecture) platform as its saloon sister and will be offered with a similar powertrain line-up, including PowerPulse diesel engines and the T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid.

Volvo adds that technology in the V90 will include the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive system, the most advanced standard safety package on the market, including Large Animal Detection and Run-off Road Mitigation, and connectivity that incorporates smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay.

   

According to Volvo president and CEO Håkan Samuelsson, Volvo is still known as the definitive estate brand to many people. “While the Volvo brand today stands for more than estates, we are proud to carry forward this rich heritage with the V90,” he says.
