Volvo has equipped the V90 Cross Country with the same D5 diesel engine that does duty in the XC90. The 2.0-litre turbocharged displacement belts out 235PS/480Nm and, courtesy of the Power Pulse Technology, there is negligible turbo lag. The combination of the 8-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive system helps transfer the firepower effectively to the road. The engine comes to life with just a hint of a rattle but stays much quieter than other, similarly sized diesel engines. There are a few predefined drive modes to choose from. If you are craving for quicker responses from the car, the Dynamic drive mode does proper justice. The Comfort mode, which tones down the brakes, steering and the engine to a softer level, is ideal for daily commuting. Off-Road mode, which activates hill start assist and hill descent control, does its job well at speeds up to 40kmph. There is also an Eco mode that focuses on lowering fuel consumption. When coasting at speeds above 65kmph, the engine disconnects from the transmission to let you cruise while minimising fuel consumption. If you aren’t happy with any of those drive modes, you can define one for yourself. For engaging into Individual drive mode, you need to dive deep in the car’s settings. Everything from the driver display on the 12-inch instrument cluster and steering force to suspension setup, powertrain and braking characteristics can be adjusted to complement your driving style. For maintenance cost we would suggest you to get in touch with the nearest dealership as they will be better person to assist you.
