Volvo V90 projected to have some of the lowest ownership costs.
The 2020 Volvo V90 wagon has the lowest projected costs of any new luxury car for the first five years of ownership, according to Kelley Blue Book. The trusted automotive valuation and information source gave the car its 2020 5-Year Cost to Own Award. Combined with a recent ALG Residual Value Award, the versatile V90 proves itself a smart new-car purchase and an attractive SUV alternative.
For new models, 5-Year Cost to Own information takes into consideration depreciation, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees, which allows consumers to see the big picture of what a new vehicle will cost them over time, according to KBB.com.
“This KBB award will not come as a surprise to people who know Volvo,” said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO, Volvo Car USA. “Volvo wagons attract the most educated, highest-earning customers and we are proud to say they hold their value so well.”
“Volvo’s V90 crossover wagon wins Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own Award for 2020 based on its low insurance costs along with low maintenance and repair projections,” said Eric Ibara, director of 5-Year Cost to Own for Kelley Blue Book. “The calculations for the V90 includes the popular Cross-Country trim with constitutes the majority of V90 sales.”
Starting at $51,540 and available in luxury Inscription, sporty R-Design and versatile Cross Country trims, the V90 is built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), Volvo’s advanced modular product platform that underpins all Volvo cars in the 90 and 60 Series.
Building on Volvo Cars’ heritage in the wagon segment, which began more than 60 years ago with the Volvo Duett, the V90 takes the luxury wagon a clear step forward in terms of aesthetics, materials and finish, while living up to the ultimately practical nature of estate cars.
Like its siblings, the XC90 SUV (2016 North American Utility of the Year and 2016 Motor Trend SUV of the Year) and S90 sedan (2017 AUTOMOBILE Design of the Year), the V90 carries the proud and confident face of Volvo’s design language, along with classic Volvo styling cues. Key features include the iconic “Thor’s Hammer” LED headlight design, the new grille and Volvo Iron Mark, and the expressive use of the Volvo word mark on the rear.
In the cabin, Volvo has taken cues from the clean, Scandinavian interior design of the XC90 model and raised the bar with new details on the dashboard and instrument panel, including new air blades that stand vertically on each side of the Sensus user interface.
