New Volvo V90 2018 Cross Country CC D5 Pro AWD 235 HP Diesel Review.
Scandinavian design and craftsmanship combine with true all-road capability in the new Volvo V90 Cross Country. Bold lines and rugged details create a powerful look, and the large wheels, increased ground clearance and sophisticated chassis are all designed to tackle the toughest conditions.
No matter what’s going on outside, V90 Cross Country is a sanctuary inside, with a cabin crafted from the finest materials and filled with natural light from the Panoramic Moonroof. Sumptuous seats offer comfort in all positions, with slim backrests that luxuriously extend rear legroom. A wide range of standard safety features will ease your mind, while intuitive technology will ease your journey. The V90 Cross Country is a car built to take you wherever the road leads, and turn every drive into an adventure.
Safety comes first
The V90 Cross Country is infused with smart, intuitive innovations that keep you safer while you drive. Standard City Safety auto-braking technology helps protect you and those around you. If a collision is imminent ahead, it will brake automatically, reducing impact – or preventing it altogether when you’re driving at speeds of 31 mph or less.
The V90 Cross Country has more standard safety features than a Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon, including Blind Spot Monitor and Semi-Autonomous Driving capability (Pilot Assist).
Whichever seat you’re in, our Premium Sound by Bowers & Wilkins audio system lets you hear the music you love just as the artists intended. Using 19 high-fidelity loudspeakers and an astonishing 1400 watts of state-of-the-art amplification, it’s an immersive experience with crystal-clear, powerful sound. Room mode functionality recreates the acoustic experience of the Gothenburg Concert Hall, a majestic stage or an epic recording studio.
Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, our award-winning Drive-E powertrains are designed to give you the most enjoyable, efficient and confident driving experience – at any engine speed. The 8-speed automatic gearbox with Start/Stop technology and our ECO+ function optimize the powertrain and climate system to further reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
With our T6 engines, the supercharger and turbocharger work together to bring you high performance. Demonstrating the perfect balance of power, they operate in conjunction to provide acceleration with no turbo lag (the time between putting the pedal all the way down and feeling the rush of torque).
Standard Blind Spot Information System (BLIS™), which Volvo pioneered over a decade ago, supports you when you have to change lanes in busy traffic. It alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind spot or approaches fast from behind. If needed, the Steer Assist function will gently steer you back into your lane. The rear-mounted radar sensors continuously monitor your blind spots and a large area behind your car, day or night. It also reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles.
Standard Pilot Assist extends semi-autonomous driving to include low-speed traffic jams as well as general highway driving. When semi-autonomous Pilot Assist is activated, acceleration, braking and steering assistance help you follow the traffic flow within your lane to increase safety. It’s especially useful on long highway trips where the road markings are clearly visible. You can activate Pilot Assist by using the buttons on the left side of the steering wheel. Just select your desired speed and time gap. If your hand is not on the steering wheel, Pilot Assist automatically switches off. It is important to note that the driver is always responsible for how the car is controlled as well as for maintaining the correct distance and speed, even when Pilot Assist is being used. Semi-autonomous systems like Pilot Assist are restricted in how much acceleration, braking and steering force they can apply.
As part of the Convenience Package, our 360° Surround View Camera shows you a high-resolution bird's eye view of the area surrounding your Volvo – a great help when you reverse or maneuver in confined areas with impaired visibility. The system uses four cameras: two at the door mirrors, one at the front and one at the rear. By touching one of the camera images on the 9-inch Sensus Touchscreen, you can get a view from that specific camera. The rear camera can also be switched to a zoomed-in view close to the car.
Standard Sensus Navigation provides intuitive guidance and connects seamlessly with our cloud-based services and navigation apps. It's conveniently operated using voice or steering wheel controls. Road directions are shown on your large touchscreen.
