Volvo Cars un­veils the all-new

The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS -

Volvo Cars has un­veiled the all-new, and ea­gerly awaited, V90 Cross Coun­try. The all­new V90 Cross Coun­try is avail­able in Canada in the first quar­ter of 2017. Cana­dian pric­ing starts at $61,900.

This ve­hi­cle will com­plete the crit­i­cally ac­claimed 90 Se­ries model lineup. The Cross Coun­try mod­els first ap­peared in 1997 and have a global recog­ni­tion of epit­o­miz­ing rugged ca­pa­bil­ity and func­tion­al­ity. The all-new V90 Cross Coun­try builds on that foun­da­tion but is also one of the most lux­u­ri­ous ve­hi­cles to ever carry the name.

“The V90 Cross Coun­try takes the el­e­gance of the V90 and trans­forms it into an all­road car that de­liv­ers safety, com­fort and per­for­mance in a ca­pa­ble and ad­ven­tur­ous pack­age,” said Håkan Sa­muels­son, Pres­i­dent & CEO, Volvo Car Group.

With a de­sign that clearly stands out from the crowd, the V90 Cross Coun­try’s rugged char­ac­ter be­lies a sump­tu­ous in­te­rior that de­liv­ers a level of lux­ury un­com­mon in the seg­ment, com­bin­ing all the ben­e­fits of the con­nec­tiv­ity and en­ter­tain­ment fea­tures in­clud­ing a high-end sound sys­tem by Bow­ers & Wilkins. The V90 Cross Coun­try’s ex­te­rior de­sign cues com­mu­ni­cate the pow­er­ful and dy­namic ca­pa­bil­ity that the car ex­em­pli­fies, while of­fer­ing the flex­i­bil­ity to choose from both rugged and el­e­gant ex­pres­sions.

“De­sign­ing a Volvo Cross Coun­try is not a styling ex­er­cise, a plas­tic job. It is based on hon­est ca­pa­bil­ity. The Volvo V90 Cross Coun­try brings a sur­pris­ing and in­trigu­ing com­bi­na­tion of a strong, pow­er­ful ex­te­rior and a lux­u­ri­ous, Scan­di­na­vian in­te­rior. It will con­tinue the gen­uine tra­di­tion of the Volvo Cross Coun­try with a new recipe: The blend of pow­er­ful off-road ca­pa­bil­ity in a most el­e­gant, so­phis­ti­cated, tai­lored wagon suit,” said Thomas In­gen­lath, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent De­sign at Volvo Cars.

A per­fect fit for the Cana­dian mar­ket, the V90 Cross Coun­try is more than ca­pa­ble of han­dling all-weather en­vi­ron­ments while main­tain­ing a high level of dura­bil­ity, per­for­mance, and de­sign ap­peal.

“Our cars are well known for their safety, strength and dura­bil­ity. With All-Wheel Drive, in­creased ride height, and a chas­sis op­ti­mized for com­fort and con­trol in all weather and road con­di­tions, the new V90 Cross Coun­try takes our ver­sa­tile V90 es­tate and adds the heart of an ex­plorer,” said Dr Peter Mertens, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Re­search & De­vel­op­ment at Volvo Cars.

The V90 Cross Coun­try was un­veiled dur­ing a si­mul­ta­ne­ous re­veal in Swe­den, Switzer­land and the United States.
