The Volvo Company is very famous for its safety systems and they have plenty of models with a high level of security. With the introduction of the newly 2018 Volvo V90 Wagon, we can expect exactly the same thing. There is going to be some new features in safety department, but besides that, we can also expect updates in other high-tech features. Some people says that the newly V90 will be the most elegant wagon on the market. We agree with them because this vehicle looks simple extraordinary. If you want to find out something more about the recently developed model, stay on this page and enjoy in the following review.
2018 Volvo V90 Wagon Exterior design
The exterior design of this model is simply gorgeous and in the front side, we can see concave grille that will be very distinctive. The grille is, of course, Volvo’s famous diagonal, and in the middle the logo of the Company. Also, there will be so many vertical slats made from chrome materials. The slats are so tiny, which looks very elegant. The front side is actually very similar to the S90 model. The headlights will be exactly the same as in the mentioned S90 model. That is very good actually because as we know, the S90 has newly developed LED technology with the LED daytime running lights. Of course, it’s not all exactly the same. This model will, for example, have an elongated hood, but that is so normal considering the fact that this beautiful model is actually a Wagon. Also, the roof is stretched of course.

If we need to describe this model in one sentence, we would say that this is sportier-looking and more stylish to the ubiquitous luxury SUVs. This is also the largest and longest wagon model in the U.S. This wagon actually offers the third row of seating which is amazing. Some cues and design attributes will be also borrowed from the XC90 model. At the sides, this vehicle has attractive aluminum wheels. However, at this moment, we don’t have the information about the wheels size. This vehicle will share Scalable Product Architecture platform with the S90 sedan and XC90 platform.
The 2018 Volvo V90 Wagon will have a length of 195 inches and a wheelbase of 115 inches.

The interior design of every Volvo is elegant, which means that is the by default a high dose of luxury and elegance. Just like the exterior design, the cabin will be also very similar to the 2017 S90 model. We can expect a lot of premium materials inside like for example, leather and wood. The cabin will provide clean lines and tasteful wood accents. Also, the dashboard looks fantastic and here we can expect large infotainment screen(Volvo’s Sensus Touch interface). Also, 2018 Volvo V90 Wagon will provide all the latest driving assistance systems, like for example the new semi-autonomous Piloted Drive feature. When it comes to some other features, this model will, for example, provide the third row of seats, maybe even three-zone climate control, a lot of connectivity features(available Apple CarPlay connectivity), adaptive cruise control, and also so many features for passengers safety. Optionally you could get the newest Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound(with music streaming)
