The V90 Cross Country benefits from engineering and technologies that have made the XC90 and S90 such good vehicles. With excellent standard equipment and a quality cabin feel, this trio competes in the luxury segment.

As with its other recent vehicles, the V90 Cross Country gets the "Hammer of Thor" headlight treatment.

The V90 Cross Country's all-wheel-drive system biases torque to the front wheels, but can shift up to 50 percent to the rear wheels to increase traction.

An optional air suspension on the rear wheels should help ride quality.
