What Does the Volvo V90 Cross Country Have to Offer That the Competition Doesn't? Betten Volvo Cars is Here to Answer!

Some people tend to see the station wagon as "out-of-style" and not as fashionable when compared to other new vehicles like hybrid models and luxury SUVs. The Volvo V90 Cross Country, however, is far from the typical type of station wagon, it's a unique type of fast, convenient and luxurious car for the modern world. This type of station wagon gives you much of the interior space and capabilities of an SUV, but with the speed and sophistication that you have come to expect out of a luxury sedan, all to make one remarkable station wagon that's in a league of its own. We here at Betten Volvo Cars want to show you all that the Volvo V90 Cross Country can do for you, so let's take a look at how it stacks up against a few other well-known wagons of its class: the Ford C-Max Hybrid, Subaru Outback and the Audi Allroad.

The Volvo V90 Cross Country vs The Ford C-Max

While the Ford C-Max hybrid has a decent amount of efficiency to offer, the inline four-cylinder (I4) engine of the Volvo V90 Cross Country definitely contributes the most powertrain for a dynamic and fun-filled ride. The Volvo V90 Cross Country generates about 250 horsepower at 5,500 revolutions per minute as well as 258 pound-feet of engine torque. Additionally, the Volvo V90 Cross Country gives you a lot more capability that you'll find on the average wagon and features a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, which is typically enough to tow small campers as well as smaller boat and jet ski trailers.

The Volvo V90 Cross Country vs The Subaru Outback

Once again, the Volvo V90 Cross Country has a lot more capability to offer, even for a luxury station wagon, overt the Subaru Outback, despite the Subaru brand's reputation for making capable cars. The Outback can tow about 2,700 pounds which can be reliable, but gives you fewer options for what you can take with you than the Volvo V90 Cross Country. The Volvo V90 Cross Country also has a much higher carrying payload of 1,377 pounds over the 1,073-pound payload of the Subaru Outback; a higher payload means a lot more options for what type of cargo you can take with you on the journey to Rockford or Grandville. The Volvo V90 is definitely the higher-rated model overall, being a recipient of the Editor's Choice Award for Station Wagons, by Car and Driver Magazine as well as Vincentric Magazine's Best Value in America Award for Luxury SUVs and Crossovers. The Volvo V90 Cross Country also received a nomination for the SUV of the Year by Motor Trend; the Subaru Outback was not nominated for this award or for any of the aforementioned ones.


The Volvo V90 Cross Country vs The Audi Allroad

Luxury sedans and station wagons are not typically known for their carrying or towing capabilities; while the Volvo V90 Cross Country is definitely one of the few exceptions to this trend, the Audi A4 Allroad, unfortunately, is not as it is not generally recommended for towing and has a lower payload capacity. When it comes to entertainment and convenience features, the Audi A4 Allroad wagon falls short as well. The Volvo V90 includes such features as dual rear DVD/Blu-Ray monitors, rear air vents, remote engine start, an available heated steering wheel and a more intuitive entertainment system featuring Gracenote, Pandora, Spotify and Stitcher. All of these options are either absent from base trim levels of the Audi A4 Allroad or are absent from the vehicle entirely.
