2017 Volvo V90 Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

What is it: The Volvo V90 is a full-size luxury wagon that seats five and is loaded with safety features.
New for 2017: The V90 is new for 2017.

Wagon fans have perhaps the highest-tech wagon yet in the all-new Volvo V90. Volvo unveiled the wagon that shares its platform with the recently introduced S90 sedan and seems poised to replace the aging XC70.

The V90 shares the S90's bold face, Thor's-hammer headlights and flat belt line. The rear window and taillights lean sharply forward. That might pinch cargo room, but it should be considerable nonetheless: Judging by the V90's profile, there's still a lot of car behind the C-pillar.

Volvo promises the V90 will have "the most advanced standard safety package on the market." Like the S90, the V90 will offer Volvo's new Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system as well as a system that detects large animals. Volvo also will offer a plug-in hybrid version, which it calls the T8. The automaker says it will put out "around 400" horsepower and offer roughly 30 miles of all-electric driving range.

The V90's five-seat interior shares the S90 and XC90's Euro-cool styling, with minimalistic controls, plenty of stitched surfaces and a large, portrait-oriented dashboard touch-screen. Other details are sparse, but Volvo says it should hit U.S. dealerships sometime in 2017.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
