Volvo V90 Cross Country - model year 2021
The V90 Cross Country is Volvo’s 5-door, 5-seat large premium all-road estate. It is built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), Volvo’s advanced modular product platform that underpins all Volvo cars in the 90 and 60 Series.
Since the introduction of the first Cross Country over 20 years ago, Volvo Cars has become synonymous with the rugged all-road, all-weather segment. The V90 Cross Country takes the elegance of the V90 and transforms it into an all-road estate that delivers safety, practicality, comfort and performance in a capable and adventurous package.
Like its 90 Series siblings, the V90 Cross Country carries the proud and confident face of Volvo’s design language, along with classic Volvo styling cues. Key features include the iconic “Thor’s Hammer” LED headlight design, the new grille and Volvo Iron Mark, and the Volvo word mark on the rear. The exterior design of the V90 Cross Country was further refined for the model year 2021.
Exterior design cues underline the car’s Cross Country nature, while an increased ride height of 60 mm and a chassis optimised for comfort and control in all weather and road conditions further add to the car’s special position within the Volvo portfolio.
In the cabin, Volvo has taken cues from the clean, Scandinavian interior design of its XC90 model and raised the bar with new details on the dashboard and instrument panel, including new air blades that stand vertically on each side of the user interface.
Connectivity and infotainment
All new Volvos are now connected, thanks to Volvo’s connectivity and infotainment system. It delivers an intuitive touch screen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment applications such as Spotify, Pandora, Baidu or TuneIn. The portrait-oriented touch screen enables easy and fast access to a host of functions and features. Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also available.
The V90 Cross Country is powered by Volvo’s Drive-E petrol and diesel powertrains, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. It is also available with a range of 48 volt mild hybrid variants on both petrol and diesel powertrains, making it the first electrified Cross Country model. Power output varies from 190 to 320 hp. All-wheel drive is standard on all Cross Country models.
Volvo’s mild hybrid technology offers drivers up to 15 per cent fuel savings and emission reductions in real world driving.
More details around the powertrain offer can be found in the Technical Specifications.
Safety and driver assistance
Volvo’s leadership in the field of automotive safety is confirmed in the V90 Cross Country. The SPA platform has resulted in the strongest Volvo cars to date because of extensive use of boron steel, as well as numerous safety systems designed to protect people inside and outside the car.
Volvo’s City Safety technology, standard on all Volvo models, combines automatic braking functionality and collision avoidance systems to cover a range of potential accident scenarios and help keep you safe. City Safety is the only system on the market that detects pedestrians, cyclists and large animals such as moose and deer.
The Pilot Assist driver assistance system works up to 130 km/h on clearly marked roads.
