Below is an article from Car and Driver.com regarding the all newly redesigned Volvo V90.


First came the 2016 XC90 crossover, then the 2017 S90 sedan, and now the 2017 V90 wagon-Volvo's top shelf is officially full. Perhaps the best looking of the 90-series lot, all of which are built on Volvo's Scale-able Project Architecture, the V90 could be considered the world's most elegant station wagon-and one that continues Volvo's 60-year legacy in the wagon segment. And best of all, it's coming here.

Now that we have a full complement of official photos from Volvo, including interior and detail shots, it's clear the V90 is gorgeous, from its concave grille to its artfully beveled rear end. From the B-pillar forward, there's nothing we haven't seen before on the S90, but the V90's long, unashamedly wagon-y rear visually balances out its long hood in ways the S90's sloping profile cannot, and we love how the taillamps zigzag from the license-plate frame and up the D-pillar to the roof.


Unsurprisingly, the V90's interior appears virtually identical to that of the S90, and we're totally okay with that. Shown in fancy "Inscription" form, the V90's cabin is as clean and as aesthetically Swedish as can be, with the interior's centerpiece being the same large, portrait-orientation infotainment screen we've come to appreciate each time we drive the XC90. Nifty details include the angled-grain wood trim, the grilles for the Bowers & Wilkins speakers, and the various knurled knobs and switches.

Few specifics were released about the features and powertrain combinations that will make it into U.S.-bound V90s, but we expect the car to follow the S90's general program. The likely base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter T5 four-cylinder that we expect to make something close to the 240 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque the same engine puts out in the current S60/V60. The next rung up would be the turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter T6 engine cranking out some 316 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. And since Volvo is all-in with its Twin Engine electrification program, you can bet your bottom krona that at some point, the T8 Twin Engine plug-in-hybrid powertrain eventually will appear, making somewhere around 410 horsepower while giving the car an all-electric range of 30 miles or so. All-wheel drive may be standard throughout the range, although the T5 may also be available with front-drive in base form. A high-performance Polestar model remains a titillating possibility.

    
 

The V90 will pack Volvo's semi-autonomous Pilot Assist technology from the factory, as does the S90. We expect that it'll come with the Swedish automaker's impressive roster of active and passive driver-assistance features, too, including parking assist, 360-degree cameras, active high-beams, collision mitigation, large-animal detection, and more.

While the V90 is definitely coming to the U.S. market in some iteration, the lingering question is whether it will be offered as a jacked-up "Cross Country" model, the slinky form you see here, or both. Our hope is that Volvo doesn't give us only a butched-up version, but we'll take new wagons any way we can get them. There's time for Volvo to decide: The S90 arrives here this summer, but the V90 isn't slated to arrive until some point in 2017.""

""Volvo Cars reveals stylish and versatile new V90 wagon""
The eagerly-awaited Volvo V90 was revealed today in Stockholm, Sweden. The stylish and versatile V90 is the latest in the luxury car maker's top-of-the-line 90 series sitting alongside the award winning XC90 SUV and the recently-launched S90 luxury sedan.

 

Building on Volvo Cars' indisputable heritage in the wagon segment, that began over 60 years ago with the Volvo Duett, the new V90 takes the luxury wagon a clear step forward in terms of aesthetics, materials and finish, while living up to the ultimately practical nature of any true wagon.

 

"We have a very strong position in the wagon segment," said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars. "In many people's minds we are known as the definitive wagon brand. While the Volvo brand today stands for more than wagons, we are proud to carry forward this rich heritage with the V90."

 

The new V90 is the third car unveiled in Volvo's top-of-the-line 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.

 

"The modern luxury wagon is all about the intriguing combination of a luxurious experience with the functional origins of the wagon silhouette. The sophisticated ambience of our new Volvo Interiors is combined with a great cargo space, providing the right kind of functionality - whether through connectivity or cargo and storage solutions," said Thomas Ingenlath senior vice president for design at Volvo Cars.

 

The new V90 delivers cutting-edge Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive technology, the most advanced standard safety package on the market, with large animal detection and run-off road mitigation, and class-leading connectivity including smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay.

 

Volvo Cars has also worked tirelessly on driving dynamics in the new model delivering a totally new and refined driving experience characterised by a sense of engaging control and predictability.

 

"We have a very strong offer in the V90. The T8 Twin Engine gas plug-in hybrid will deliver around 400 hp and a pure electric range of around 50 km," said Dr Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research & Development at Volvo Cars.

 

The new Volvo V90 is scheduled to arrive in the United States in 2017. ""
