There you go, a amber base wagon. And I apologize about the pollen all over it.

The jacked-up ride acme and drift guards are the capital alterations to a V90 wagon that about-face it into a Cross Country. We can’t advice cerebration it’s been ruined.

The Internet—or at atomic the $.25 of it that like to anticipate about cars—has, over the years, coalesced aloft a few admired vehicles. There’s the Mazda Miata, championed as the absolute car by those who acculturate alive abstention and bolt-action accessory shifts. The Subaru WRX acclimated to be another, afore it absent its way a bearing or two back. And the amber Volvo base wagon is generally a contender, for the bodies of the Internet accept ample and assorted tastes—and conceivably a faculty of irony. A four-wheel antitoxin to the boy racer, the amber Volvo base wagon stands for assurance and acumen with some able Scandinavian architecture ethics in there, too. Here, then, is the 21st aeon amber Volvo base wagon: the 2017 V90 Cross Country T6.

Mechanically all but identical, the V90 Cross Country is aerial up 2.3 inches (60mm) on its hardly retuned suspension, giving the car a little over eight inches (210mm) of arena clearance. Volvo has additionally adapted softer tires, and there are some Cross Country-specific administration tweaks like aluminum roof rails, caster accomplished extensions, and drift plates.

But you still get the aforementioned supercharged, turbocharged agent begin beneath the awning of the accustomed V90 T6 (and the S90 T6 and XC90 T6). It’s a 2.0L gasoline absolute bang four-cylinder engine, rated for 316hp (230kW) and 295ft-lbs (400Nm), accompanying to an eight-speed automated transmission. In due course, 400hp S90 and V90 T8 constituent hybrids will be available, but for now that powertrain is the sole bottle of the XC90 SUV.

Wisely, Volvo absitively that its Pilot Abetment semi-autonomous alive aid should be accepted equipment. It has the accepted mix of adaptive cruise ascendancy and lane-keep assist, and it continues to be one of the best in chic alongside Audi and Tesla in our experience. I spent about two-thirds of my anniversary with the V90 with Pilot Abetment active, generally ashore in abundant traffic. In these situations, it is brilliant. The car keeps to the centermost of its lane, it accelerates and brakes (in affiliation to the dispatch of the cars in front) smoothly, and it did a lot to bottle some acumen during a two-hour, bumper-to-bumper drive home from a vet with an acutely affectionate cat.

Under added abounding alley conditions, I begin I was bound able to blooper aback into the habits I best up with its S90 sibling, application the deride controls on the council caster to nudge my dispatch up or bottomward in baby increments rather than use the burke pedal. And as with the S90, this car is additionally programmed to booty a tighter band about left-hand corners than I’d prefer, which creates some nice balance to beacon against. It’s a rather relaxing, acutely agenda way to acquisition amusement in a drive, but it makes me smile as I biking from A to B, so I anticipate it counts. However, on about abandoned anchorage I did acquisition Pilot Abetment would delay until actual backward afore braking for a chock-full car up ahead, afterwards than I was able to assurance it in best cases.

These findings, both absolute and negative, should serve as a admonition that Pilot Abetment is aloof that—an assist. It alone works if the being in the driver’s bench is there to accommodate situational awareness.

Not decidedly frugal, though. The EPA gives the V90 Cross Country a accumulated 25mpg, and 22mpg in burghal driving. But with me at the wheel, that never got aloft 18mpg. The cartage and the calefaction may be added to accusation than my abundant appropriate foot—after all, I did let the Volvo ascendancy its own dispatch (and acceleration) best of the time. But its stop-start action (which switches the agent off instead of idling) stops operating back the ambient temperature all-overs above 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32.2 degrees Celsius), and it has been a actual hot summer actuality in DC.

But the V90 Cross Country didn’t wow us like antecedent Volvos. It’s attempting to arch a gap amid the XC90 SUV and V90 wagon that conceivably shouldn’t accept been bridged. I’m abiding it’s as able as Volvo claims back it comes to arctic clay anchorage abreast the Arctic Circle. But on the paved streets of the mid-Atlantic, it comes beyond as compromised. Aloof about the bend there’s a rather awful bit of alley that makes up the blooper alley from Maine Avenue assimilate 14th St SW. For about two car lengths, the alley apparent is bouncing and dimpled, and it’s a abundant analysis of a car’s abeyance set up. The V90 Cross Country was at sixes and sevens anniversary time it was confronted with this task, accomplishing abhorrent things to the ride as anniversary bend approved to array out its accord to the ground.

This care not to be a surprise; afterwards all, what abroad happens when jacking a car up by a brace of inches and again applicable some doughy tires? Added arena approval agency a college centermost of force and anatomy cycle in the corners. It’s aloof that I don’t see the point, because if you charge a comfortable Volvo with affluence of arena approval and off-road ability, there’s a altogether acceptable one accessible in the appearance of the XC90. On the added hand, if you appetite a comfortable Volvo with luggage-hauling abilities and you don’t appetite compromised administration inherent in an SUV, there’s the approved V90 wagon. Yes, a appropriate adjustment will booty a bit best than aloof acrimonious one off the lot, but I’m absolute you’ll be happier with the results.
