Volvo’s stylish premium station wagon is heading to the market, and it doesn’t come cheap. As Swedish carmaker Volvo has indicated, its new Volvo V90 midsize wagon won’t be available through traditional means in the United States. This means that even if you go to the US dealer nearest your location, you won’t be able to simply come out of the showroom driving a 2017 Volvo V90 premium station wagon. This is because Volvo has decided not to stock the V90 stylish wagon in the US, as it has deep concerns over the low demand for regular wagons. Thus, if you want to get Volvo’s premium station wagon as your ride, you have to place a special order for the V90.
Good thing is that Volvo has launched an online configurator for its new products. This would allow interested customers to decide on the specs, features and elements of their new Volvo V90 without having to go their local dealers. Interestingly, the prices are also indicated, which means customers could also fit their Volvo V90 to their budget, giving them a clear idea how much money they need to shell out for their new premium station wagons.
The least expensive Volvo V90 – yes, this stylish wagon fetches a high price – could be availed for a base price of $49,950. When the destination fee of $995 is included, the total price surges to $50,945. This goes for the front-wheel drive V90 R-Design grade that is powered by a T5 turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine that delivers up to 250 hp of output and up to 258 lb.-ft. of torque.
