The popular station wagon is about to get a facelift next year. Those are the latest reports about the 2021 Volvo V90. If we consider that the current generation has been around since 2016, this seems like perfect timing for updates. At this point, we are still waiting for details, but we may presume that the new model will arrive with typical updates, predominately with styling changes. Interior novelties are possible as well, though we don’t expect too much. On the other side, the mechanical aspect of the 2021 Volvo V90 is expected to remain untouched. The new model should hit the market in the second half of 2020.
- Long list of safety features
- Some of the best seats in the class
- Lots of legroom
- Poor predicted reliability ratings
- Small cargo area
The most prominent changes for the 2021 Volvo V90 update will be those in terms of the styling. It is still early to talk about details, but it’s not hard to presume that the focus will be on the front end. We count on revisions on parts like headlights, grille, bumper, etc.
Also, we count on typical updates in terms of new color options, new wheels, etc. The rest of the vehicle should carry on it the same way. On the other side, the mechanical aspect of the 2021 Volvo V90 should remain the same.
When it comes to the interior changes, we might see some smaller updates, but we are pretty sure that the overall layout will remain the same. The current model already comes with a spacious and good looking cabin.
The dashboard is particularly attractive, while the overall opulence is definitely on par with rivals like Audi Allroad. On the other side, we don’t like the fact that the cargo area features below-average volume.
2021 Volvo V90 Engines
We expect that the 2021 Volvo V90 will carry on with two familiar engines in the offer. Both engines are a great choice, both in terms of power and efficiency. The base engine is a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four and features a max output of 250 horsepower, which will satisfy most drivers.
On the other side, the optional powertrain gets help from a supercharger and the max output goes up to 316 horsepower. Driving dynamics are notably better in this case. With the base engine, you may count on 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. These are average numbers for the class.
2021 Volvo V90 Release Date and Price
Although it is still early for a more precise date, we presume that the 2021 Volvo V90 will hit the market sometime in the third quarter of next year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around $52,000.
