2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country Teased

2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country Teased

Volvo is teasing the new V90 Cross Country before it makes its official debut at the end of September at the Paris Motor Show.

While its styling will largely stay the same as its V90 counterpart, the Cross Country model will no doubt feature plastic cladding around the wheel arches and rocker panels, a brushed aluminum roof rack, model-specific alloy wheels and a taller ride height. Underbody protection will also be part of the package.

Under the hood will be a choice of outputs from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. When just turbocharged, the engine puts out 250 horsepower, while a supercharged and turbocharged version of the powerplant will offer 316 hp. A T8 hybrid version will also be available while all-wheel drive will likely be standard.

The new V90 Cross Country is the spiritual successor to the Volvo XC70 and is expected to go on sale in the U.S. in 2017 as a 2018 model year vehicle.
