Marked as the successor to the long-running V70 wagon, the V90 will take the place of Volvo's flagship wagon.

The V90 looks mostly identical to the S90 in terms of looks. Both models are the same from the front to the B-Pillar. Where the V90 differs is towards the back as Volvo's designers have extended the roofline and added a sharply raked tailgate. The interior is much the same as the S90 with an understated design, large touchscreen for Volvo's Sensus, and seating for five. Specifications for the V90 is unknown at this time, but we expect it to be quite large.

Volvo is keeping quiet on what powers the V90, but it wouldn't be hard to guess that it will share the S90's powertrain lineup. For Europe, there will be a range of diesel and gasoline engines. The U.S. will get three engine choices; the T5 (turbocharged four-cylinder with 250 horsepower), T6 (turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder with 316 horsepower), and the T8 (turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder paired with an electric motor producing 410 horsepower).

Volvo will be showing off the V90 next month at the Geneva Motor Show. We hope Volvo gives us a timeline as to when we'll see the V90 arrive at dealers. In the meantime, you can check out the reveal event for the V90 below.
