Volvo unveiled the eagerly awaited V90 Estate in Stockholm today. This the latest model to take its place within in their flagship 90 series, next to the XC90 SUV and S90 saloon.
In total, the V90 will be available with 5 different power units, two petrol, one hybrid and two diesels. The 254 PS T5, 320 PS T6 AWD and 407 PS T8 AWD make up the petrol/hybrid line-up, whereas 190 PS D4 and 235 PS D5 AWD units make up the diesel range.
The new V90 is the third car unveiled in Volvo’s range-topping 90 series, all of which are built on the company’s specially-designed and fully modular Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which has opened up a range of new opportunities in terms of how Volvos can be designed, built and equipped.
Volvo claims to have the most advanced standard safety package on the market – with large animal detection and run-off road mitigation, and class-leading connectivity.
“We have a very strong position in the estate segment,” says Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars. “In many people’s minds we are known as the definitive estate brand. While the Volvo brand today stands for more than estates, we are proud to carry forward this rich heritage with the V90.”
Unfortunately, the all-new Volvo V90 is currently not planned for South African introduction, owing to small market demands.
