The long-roof brother of the S90 sedan is slated to make its official debut in Sweden on February 18, with the global debut to follow in March at the Geneva Motor Show. Courtesy of the peeps from, we now know that the luxurious station wagon borrows some styling cues from the Volvo Concept Estate, including the cool L-shaped taillights.

Compared to boxy Volvo estates of old (like the preceding V70), the V90 has been designed to be a premium product first and foremost. This change of heart is best represented by the slanted rear window. From the front fascia to the B-pillar of the 2016 Volvo V90, there’s little in the way of visual differences between it and the S90. Curious about the interior?

Sorry, folks, no surprises here either. Put simply, it’s identical in every aspect to the S90’s cabin. From the HVAC unit’s buttons to the shape of the gear lever, everything is as you expected it to be. As is the case inside the XC90, the Volvo V90 also uses 9 inches of touchscreen goodness for its infotainment system. The instrument cluster, on the other hand, is a reconfigurable 12.3-inch high-definition LCD display.

Peel off the body shell and you’re left with a front-wheel- or all-wheel-drive SPA modular platform. The powertrain lineup will mirror that of the S90. From an entry-level 2-liter D4 turbo diesel engine (193 PS) to a T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid with 413 PS, there’s a V90 for all people out there in the market for an estate.

Expect the Swede to make its North American debut in NYC at the end of March as the 2017 Volvo V90.
