Recognising the shift in buyer's interest away from diesel, the Volvo S90 saloon and V90 estate can now be ordered with a 190hp petrol engine, dubbed the T4.

Watch our video review of the 2018 Volvo XC60.
Volvo's recently refocused performance brand, Polestar, has revealed its first new car, the Polestar 1.
At the launch of the new XC90, we found ourselves concluding that we were witnessing the birth of a golden age for Volvo. What we weren’t expecting, though, was how well the XC90 would position Volvo as a genuine premium manufacturer...
The new Volvo XC40 has been officially unveiled and is available to order now ahead of first deliveries in Q1 2018, with prices starting from £27,905.
We were always fans of the old Volvo XC60. That's not surprising when you consider it consistently found itself at the top of the premium SUV best sellers list. In fact, Volvo sold more XC60s in its last year of production than they had in any other year. Clearly, this new XC60 is a car Volvo can't afford to get wrong. So let me start by letting you in on a secret: they haven't.
Volvo has announced that every new model launched from 2019 will have an electric motor of some kind, either fully electric, a plug-in hybrid, or a 48-volt mild hybrid.
So busy are we buying hatchbacks and crossovers that the concept of having four doors and a boot feels like something that died with the Ford Cortina. But that didn't stop the Mercedes C-Class bursting into the top 10 sellers list this year to rub shoulders with the Ford Focus. And if all saloons were like the Volvo S90, we’d probably buy a lot more of them.
Jacked-up estate cars can sometimes end up feeling like the poor relation; a last-ditch attempt to mop up a few niche sales with the promise of a suspension lift and some plastic cladding. However, it's a recipe Volvo have been perfecting since they created the V70 XC back in 1997. And, having spent a week a with it, I humbly submit that this latest Cross Country model, far from being the runt of the V90 range, is actually the pick of the bunch...
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.
The new Volvo S90 saloon and V90 estate are now available with performance upgrade packages from in-house tuning specialists Polestar.
