2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

Volvo recently expanded its lineup with the S90 sedan and is again adding to it with the 2017 V90 Cross Country. It debuted at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. With the V90 Cross Country, Volvo continues its long history of producing wagons and then uprating them to go off-road.

New for 2017

As you'd expect from a car designed to go off-road, the V90 Cross Country rides higher than a conventional car. And the wagon features a long hood that, while it looks great, might make it hard to judge where the front of the car is in tight spaces. Volvo said it tested the car in a secret testing area in the "frozen north of Sweden," so hopefully engineers checked that out while they were up there.

The rest of the V90 follows the traditional Volvo styling, with the automaker's family grille, Thor's hammer headlights and chiseled body parts. 

Interior

There aren't a lot of specifics about exactly what luxury surfaces await inside the V90 Cross Country, but Volvo assures us it's "sumptuous," and will feature the connectivity and entertainment features of the Volvo S90 and V90. Presumably, this also means Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be available.

That also includes the option of a Bowers & Wilkins stereo system.

Under the Hood

There's one engine available for the V90 Cross Country, a 316-horsepower, supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that's matched to an eight-speed automatic transm...

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.
