2018 Volvo V90 Chicago IL

New 2018 Volvo V90 Wagon at Patrick Volvo Cars for Schaumburg, IL

The Volvo V90 is a new vehicle for the 2018 model year. A resurrection of sorts for the wagon, the V90 revitalizes the segment with a very detailed and specific design aesthetic, clever engineering, an abundance of upscale offerings, and the sophisticated safety equipment that many have come to expect from Volvo. If you're looking for a whole lot of substance in addition to flash, take a look at the Volvo V90.

Under the V90 Wagon's Hood

The V90 is undoubtedly a good looking car, but its beautiful design is more than skin deep. Volvo's well-engineered Scalable Product Architecture can be felt at many levels of performance. This includes its ingenious monocoque chassis, a true marvel of engineering, which allows Volvo to make vehicles more quickly but also with augmented safety. Volvo has excelled with their safety features throughout the years, and this vehicle is no exception! The V90 comes with two exuberant power sources to choose from. The first is the supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and the next is the T8 hybrid which likely features the same engine, although it hadn't been confirmed at the time of this writing. Car and Driver estimates that it will be rated around 410 horsepower with a 30-mile electric only range.

Design of Volvo V90 Wagon

Volvo's crisp aesthetic vision is 20/20 on the 2018 V90. Design clarity is impeccable and execution equally so. This crystal-like clarity in design is the result of clean and simple style elements that have been refined to their most elegant qualities. The interior is decorated with angled-grain wood trim, and accents made of chrome and metal. It brings in many of Volvo's recent visual advancements and adds them to some of Volvo's more tried and true signatures of safety and practicality. The Volvo V90 is simultaneously a pragmatic choice as well as a lavish one. It features a 9-inch Sensus Connect touchscreen interface that is displayed in a portrait orientation offering logically organized touchscreen controls. There is to be no mistake, this vehicle is a wagon and Volvo makes that clear with its exterior design choices. It refines many of the wagon elements creating a sleek and fluid look that still fully supports its safety conscious nature.

Final Thoughts On The 2018 Volvo V90

Likely safety features include frontal collision warning, automatic braking, and a standard rearview camera. These luxurious safety features are scarcely standard on non-Volvo vehicles, even those in similar segments. Volvo has also included a number of optional safety items like rear cross-traffic warning, lane-departure warning, and blind-spot warning systems. The lane-departure system, is especially sophisticated, and it is able to actually steer the car back into the proper lane if not acted on quickly enough by the driver. More passive features are likely to be included in Volvo's semi-autonomous Pilot Assist technology. This has historically included features like a 360-degree camera, collision mitigation, active high-beams, large-animal detection, parking assist, and plenty more, thus continuing Volvo's long-held reputation for providing optimum safety. The Volvo V90 is not only an attractive and luxurious vehicle, it's a safe one.
