When Volvo launched the new V90, they did so with a series of rather stirring videos. There’s nothing unusual about that: we’re used to seeing images of the latest model pivoting from one sinuous corner to the next on an implausibly traffic-free road. But what Volvo did was more striking. Because the subject of the video wasn’t so much a car, as an entire country.

Every now and then, a car comes along that embeds itself in automotive history, or redefines a market segment. Sometimes, heroes come from the most unlikely backgrounds, and I humbly propose that the Volvo XC90 has done more for road safety than most other cars in recent history. Previous seven-seaters expected you to load your off-spring into what was effectively the rear crumple zone, but Volvo fixed that with the first generation XC90 so comprehensively it remained in production for over a decade. So what challenge must the new XC90 meet?

Ah, the go-anywhere, all-weather estate car. Volvo practically invented the concept when they all-wheel-driverised the V70 back in 1997 and slapped a Cross Country moniker on the tailgate, prompting the German competition to launch Allroad, Alltrack, and a slew of other ‘All’ models. So, with the V60 consistently appearing in Volvo’s top three best-sellers, it makes sense to bestow it with the full-on all-weather treatment.
