2017 Volvo V90 wagon will have a Cross Country version! The Wagon Is Back!

from http://gas2.org/2016/02/11/407-hp-2017- ... -revealed/
We’ve already seen the all-new 2017 Volvo S90 sedan, but the super-practical V90 wagon version of the car has remained pure speculation. Not anymore- meet the new, 407 HP twin-engine 2017 Volvo V90 wagon!

Powered by the same “twin engine” hybrid system found in the award-winning XC90 SUV, the 407 HP hybrid wagon is wickedly fast, with a low CG and active traction control that keeps it safe and stable while cornering. Volvo backs up the V90’s high-tech drivetrain with high-tech driving intelligence, too, in the form of the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive system that, in this version, has been upgraded to work at speeds as high as 80 MPH.

That the new Volvo V90 is going to push the envelope of safety tech, too, is a given. The company expects a full 5-star rating and IIHS Top Safety Pick+ commendations, and is backing that up with smarter City Safety crash-avoidance technology as it moves towards its goal of producing fully “death proof” cars by 2020.

The new V90 wagon is sick! This may be the replacement to my E63 wagon in a few years.

Wagon is love, wagon is life.

Seriously, we need more wagons and less SUV.

Signs you're a postwhore:
1) You say "I got that cheaper", but don't say where, or when.
2) Your post contains less than 5 words.
3) Your post contains more than 5 words, but none of them are about the topic of the thread.

I agree but the public doesn't.

Looks like same power train as the new xc90 t8 looking at the numbers.

Me three!
I love wagons and hatchbacks. The new B-segment CUV is taking off nicely though... Perhaps this will usher in a new era of wagons. More efficient then an SUV... but same practicality. AWD + 5 big seats and a trunk.

Beautiful, personally I like the V60 Polestar as well. Did consider it for quite some time but I just can't do it due to the lack of manual transmission.

Yes, same power train as the S90 also. This V90 is based on the same Scalable Product Architecture platform as the S90 and XC90.

No more V6s for Volvo pretty much, the new Polestars will be I4s. But definitely a very nice estate.

Yes but I was referring to the V60 model not the V6 engines.

I know, was going off on a tangent that their engines are being downsized.

The one thing that volvo does really well is wagons, they look great! Too bad the sedans and suv look like poop.

Volvo never used V6 ;)

If you guys want a SUV, there is also the V90CC coming I believe. That way you got a higher seating position and "off road capabilities" without having to go to the XC90.

I'm pretty sure they did use V6s...off the top of my head I think the T6 R design is a V6?
