The Audi A4 is what we define as an embodiment of class and elegance, while the Volvo V90 Cross Country couples the stylishness with functionality.  In case you are stuck between these two options and confused which one to go for, this in-depth comparison will help you in making a choice.

Design & Style

The exterior is worth appreciation for both the models, but interiors have something else to say. The Audi A4 is a 5-seater sedan with standard leather upholstery. The front seats are reasonably comfortable, while the rear seats can be a bit cramped.  The chic interior features high-class materials such as wood trimmings and supple leather.

The Volvo V90 Cross Country, on the other hand, has an elegantly designed cabin with a strong build quality and plenty of soft-touch surfaces on offer. There is sufficient space across both rows of seating, with enough legroom and headroom on offer for taller passengers. For fitting in your baggage, you have adequate cargo space as well.

Technology & Safety

Audi is known for producing top-of-the-line automotive technology in the market, with its A4 model featuring an MMI infotainment system with a 7-inch display, voice commands and intuitive central knob. Some of the other notable features include USB ports, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Standard safety features include Audi Pre Sense City, which prepares the car for a possible collision. Other highlights include rain-sensing headlights and a rearview camera.

One of the biggest draws for the Volvo V90 Cross Country is its Sensus infotainment system, with smartphone connectivity options such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Navigation system is a big plus point. You can connect to the internet via Volvo On Call, Bluetooth and WiFi. The rearview camera comes standard, while the Park Assist Pilot allows your car to park on its own.


Talking about performance, the 2018 Audi A4 is not as potent as its rivals, although it's close. It comes standard with a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with two main options including 190 HP or 252 HP. It may deliver sufficient power, but it seriously lags behind Volvo V90 cross country in terms of power output and engine specification. It offers a maximum yield of 295lb-ft of torque and 316 Horsepower.

The Bottom Line

After going through this comparison, it must be quite clear that Volvo V90 Cross Country has an upper hand, not only in terms of design or technology but also handling and performance. Even an astute car buyer would be convinced with the idea of preferring Volvo over Audi, given the set of excellent attributes it can deliver.
