Design & Style

The 2019 Volvo V90 combines both sporty and modern elements on the outside. The sporty side is defined by a set of 19-inch wheels, and roof rails on it. The modern side, on the other hand, is detailed in its LED headlights. As for the cabin, there are plenty of premium materials that are soft to the touch. Of course, the roomy space can seat up to five people without any problem.

The Cadillac XTS also seats five people on its leather upholstery. It has standard power-adjustable front seats as well. While there are premium quality materials found in the cabin, it can be noticed that there are some elements that do not meet expectations. Its rivals, including the V90, definitely looks better.

Technology & Safety

There is a long list of driver aids for this wagon. Among thes standard safety features are active steering for collision prevention, adaptive headlights, distance alert, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, and rear parking sensors.
