Vroom with Volvo V90 Cross Country

Vroom with the All new Volvo V90 Cross Country - the 2 cars in one, that has the comfort of luxury sedan with the go-anywhere ride height of an SUV. The exciting Delhi launch of this car was held at the new Scandia Motorcars at Mathura Road, South Delhi with a fan fare that included a performance by Papa CJ, the stand up comedian, and a live performance by the band Ehsaas and attended. This marks the fourth facility in the NCR region and 18th in the country. 

Speaking about the new car and the dealership, Tom von Bonsdorff, Managing Director, Volvo Auto India, said, “Volvo V90 Cross Country  has remarkable off-roading performance, on-road comfort and luxury. It is designed for Indian road conditions and is in sync with the new-age luxury customer’s lifestyle of seeking a weekend escape.

The car stands-out with its exterior design that exudes rugged character combining with a definitive Swedish luxury interior. Intuitive touch enabled infotainment amplifies ease of access to the cars features and the 19-speakers Bowers & Wilkins surround experience. The Nappa leather seats with front seats ventilated for heating/cooling, massage and seat extenders adds to the comfort quotient in the car. The cabin noise is reduced to cocoon you in luxury.

V90 Cross Country stands tall with 210 mm unladen Ground Clearance, taller than most SUVs offered in the segment. The Haldex AWD system, Hill Descent Control and an off-road driving mode makes it the perfect off-roader for the weekend trail.

The heart of the V90 Cross Country is a robust diesel engine that has a Volvo invention – Power Pulse Technology. This feature spools up the turbo instantly thereby negating any turbo-lag from a stop-go situation, Power Pulse provides a constant boost to the acceleration. This twin-turbo engine delivers 235 hp and 480 Nm torque coupled with an 8-Speed gearbox with paddle shifts ensuring a smooth or a sporty performance. The new generation powertrains are clean and comply with stringent European and Indian emission norms.

4 types of drive modes – Eco, Comfort, Dynamic and Off-Road provides you a varied choice of settings apt for your luxurious drive to work or an adventurous drive to your weekend Get Away destination.
