The Top Gear car review: Volvo V90

n/a
9/10
Overall verdict
A properly desirable Volvo wagon - finally a decent alternative to the Germans.
 

For: 

Scandi-style interior, looks, relaxed and harmonious drive

Against: 

Rakish roofline eats into cargo space

Overview

What is it?

An all-new Volvo estate, which shares very few parts with the V70 it effectively replaces. Its basic engineering and technology, and the flavours of its design inside and out, are copy-pasted from the XC90. Which is fine, because the big, seven-seat SUV is very safe, relaxing and a delight to sit in. So we have no particularly shocking news to deliver on the new estate. It too has those qualities in abundance.
