Believe me, it is a great package

Celebrities normally get major discounts due to a visibility 30-40% depending on whether the brand needs the celebrity or vice versa! I understand that in the case of Mr T who likes all things free or "duty" free, he has a contract with BMW to appear only in public driving a BMW, he gets a free run on any BMW he likes.

The styling of the V90 Cross Country is based on Volvo's latest design language featuring an upright grille and hammer shaped LED daytime running lights. The overall shape of the vehicle is derived from an estate/ station wagon which is quite evident when viewed in profile. It measures 4,938 mm in length with a maximum ground clearance of 210 mm. This being the Cross Country version, it gets cladding around the wheel arches, bumpers and sills for added protection.

Inside, you get a 12.3-inch driver display, 9-inch touchscreen infotainment screen with Sensus navigation, hill descent control, 4-zone automatic climate control, heads-up display, hands free power tail gate, rain sensing wipers, Nappa leather upholstery, memory function for driver and passenger seats and a panoramic sunroof. 560 liters of boot space can be expanded to 1526 liters with the rear seats folded.

The V90 Cross Country is a crossover variant of the V90 estate and shares its underpinnings with the S90 sedan. It uses the same 2.0-liter diesel engine from the S90, albeit with more power. The twin-turbocharged D5 unit puts out 232 BHP and 480 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission and a Haldex AWD system.

Drivers can select from 4 driving modes - Eco, Comfort, Dynamic and Off-road. Additionally, it comes with an active chassis and rear air suspension as standard. Being a Volvo, it also comes with a host of active and passive occupant safety systems such as adaptive cruise control, collision warning with emergency brake assist, lane-keeping aid, and Park Pilot Assist, rear collision warning, blind spot detection, etc.

The V90 Cross Country will be available in 7 colour options - Crystal White Metallic, Bright Silver Metallic, Magic Blue Metallic, Osmium Grey Metallic, Onyx Black Metallic, Havana Maple Brown Metallic and Magic Blue Metallic.

Correct me if I am missing something, but why does V90 cross country costs less compared to XC90 in India?

Indian Prices:
XC90: 70 lakhs +
V90 cross country: 60 lakhs.

USA Prices:
XC90: $45,750
V90 cross country: $55,300

Two reasons, the XC90 price is without options, wagons are sold fully loaded in the Inscription trim, the base XC90 will be the equivalent of the corporate edition.

There is also a light truck tax reduction which puts 4 wheel drive SUVs in a lower tax bracket. This again might not apply for V90 though.

The price is good. Reviews seem really good too. Volvo's build quality is second to none and they have the nicest interiors.

210mm ground clearance with All wheel drive and Volvo's level of safety make it look like a sure-shot winner.

2 factors working against it are Volvo's poor network and the poor market for estates in India. Let's hope it does well.

This is an awesome car - ticks almost all the boxes - if only available at a more decent price though - , Well we can't ask for everything.

Great looks, feature packed, maximum safety, high power , AWD capability -

If only I have the money to buy, this would be the car

If this doesn't bring back the market for estates in India, I don't know what will.

I have always loved estates and this one is such a looker. I do hope Jag sees this and brings the XF Sportbrake to India.
