Volvo presented the new V90 Cross Country, which has an increased ground clearance by 65 mm, compared to the simple V90. The car will be the competitor of the Mercedes-Benz E-class All Terrain and the Audi A6 Allroad.
Its design does not change much, in comparison to the V90, with only the additions being the black plastic protective, the new bumpers with metallic decorations, the new exhaust tailpipes and the new wheels. The V90 Cross Country was developed and tested in Sweden, and it is able to withstand temperatures up to -40 degrees Celsius. Its ground clearance is 218 mm, while that of the A6 Allroad is limited to 185 mm.
The V90 Cross Country is expected to be released in 2017 and to be available with the same range of engines found in the S90 and V90. The new V90 Cross Country will be built at Volvo’s factory in Torslanta, north of Gothenburg, Sweden. Its production is expected to begin in the coming weeks and the first cars will be delivered in early 2017.
