The Volvo V90 Cross Country is now ready to tackle the urban wilderness image

The all-new V90 Cross Country has the ability to bring peace of mind to the owner when the tough gets going, thanks to the added ground clearance and plastic body cladding on top of the regular wagon styling.

The Volvo 90 Series model lineup has received yet another member – the practical and adventurous V90 Cross Country, which brings the wagon and crossover segments to a logical alliance. And with production starting this fall, the all-weather wagon will be ready for prime time during winter, where it should truly reveal its most important credentials. The exterior design is closely related to the V90, on which it is being based upon, and the Cross Country brings tweaks such as the modified lower front end with a silver-outlined intake in the center. The back bumper has also been modified with the parallelogram-shaped exhausts at each corner, and a lighter section in the middle. There’s 2.4 inches (60 millimeters) of added ground clearance and plastic body protection all around for harsher terrains.

The interior meanwhile is entirely identical to the V90 – with the same infotainment system and the optional Bowers & Wilkins sound system, with the only change being the darker materials to match the vehicle’s new demeanor. The carmaker hasn’t revealed the vehicle’s engine options, and has only confirmed the obvious – it has all-wheel drive. Most likely, the same engine options as in the V90 in Europe and the United States will also be available on the V90 Cross Country.
