Order Up! Volvo V90 Wagon Available to Spec; R-Design will be Least Expensive
which’s no secret which we are fans of Volvo’s sleek V90 wagon; we especially dig which in its purist form—more so than the Cross Country edition—as well as which looks particularly hot in R-Design trim. Well, currently Volvo has released pricing for the wagon, as well as guess what? The V90 R-Design will be the least expensive edition.
The V90 R-Design starts at $50,945, as well as the V90 Inscription will be $52,945. Those prices are for vehicles equipped with the T5 powertrain, which consists of Volvo’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder generating 250 horsepower as well as 258 lb-ft of torque, driving the front wheels.
The Cross Country, which doesn’t offer multiple trim levels, starts at $56,295—however which’s with the T6 powertrain (there will be no T5 Cross Country). If you want the T6 supercharged as well as turbocharged 2.0-liter four (not bad for 316 horsepower as well as 295 lb-ft) as well as all-wheel drive on your regular V90, which’s $56,945 for the R-Design as well as $58,945 for the Inscription—so which’s a little dearer than the Cross Country.
All V90 wagons come standard with Volvo’s Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving capability (which works at speeds up to 80 mph), adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking (with pedestrian as well as large-animal detection), lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, Volvo’s Sensus 12.3-inch vertical touchscreen with navigation, as well as a panoramic sunroof. As befits their sporty status, the R-Design products have what’s described as a “sport” chassis, sport pedals, metal Inside trim, as well as leather as well as nubuck upholstery in gray, as well as the following R-Design-specific items: grille, outdoor trim, illuminated sill moldings, shift knob, steering wheel, carpet, as well as key fob. The Inscription gets a “dynamic” chassis, full leather (in a choice of four colors), walnut trim, multicontour seats with power-adjustable lateral support as well as cushion extenders, heated as well as ventilated front seats, a power cargo cover, as well as its own design for the 19-inch wheels, outdoor trim, carpet, as well as key fob.
Because the V90 will be special order only (unlike the Cross Country, which will be stocked in dealerships), Volvo will be able to offer far more than the usual level of customization. There are nearly 20 options (depending on trim level as well as powertrain), all of which are available individually, so you’re not forced to buy packages. A Bowers & Wilkins audio system will be the priciest at $3200, however various other notable items include a head-up display ($900), a 360-degree camera ($900), 20-inch wheels ($800), integrated booster seats ($500), automated park assist ($500), as well as a heated steering wheel ($300). Volvo’s air suspension as well as adaptive dampers ($1200) are reserved for T6 products only.

Perhaps the ability to customize one’s ride will be sufficient enticement to get buyers to wait out the process of placing a special order for a V90 rather than opting for a Cross Country which’s sitting on the dealer lot. Besides, the V90 R-Design looks so damn not bad.
