Which new Volvo Wagon is the best fit for your lifestyle?

When it comes to luxury cars around the greater Atlanta area, there's always been a wealth of premium sedans and SUVs to choose from. But when it comes to luxury wagons, the Volvo brand is one of the few players in the segment. Now, the wagon may have fallen out of fashion with many legacy luxury brand, but fortunately for premium wagon devotees, the Volvo brand is still doing the segment justice with models like the new Volvo V60 and Volvo V90.

Now, if you've been looking into your options with the Volvo V60 and Volvo V90, you're probably a little bit torn between the two. After all, these luxury wagons are remarkably well-rounded when it comes to features and design, but which of the two is best for you? Read our head-to-head comparison of the Volvo V90 and Volvo V60 below to find out more about each model's strengths and determine which of the two is ideal for your needs.

What are the differences between the new Volvo V60 and the Volvo V90?

While that's always an important question to ask when considering to different luxury cars, we think it's just as important to explore the similarities between the Volvo V60 and Volvo V90. After all, both are Volvo luxury wagons, so there's a lot of commonality between the two.


For example, when it comes to performance, both the Volvo V60 and Volvo V90 come standard with the Volvo T5 powertrain, which is motivated by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces up to 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Now, while this makes both the new Volvo V60 and Volvo V90 dynamic daily drivers for most Atlanta drivers, those who want a little more muscle in their next luxury wagon will want to opt for the new Volvo V90. With available trims like the Volvo V90 T6 R-Design and Volvo V90 T6 Inscription, you'll enjoy an available turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's good for up to 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

That said, while there's a few disparities between the Volvo V60 and Volvo V90 on the performance front, there's quite a bit of parity on the tech front. Both the new Volvo V60 and Volvo V90 feature the latest version of the Volvo Sensus infotainment system, which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support on its 9-inch touchscreen display. On top of that, both models feature Volvo City Safety technologies, providing an added layer of protection and security when cruising through busy areas like Downtown Atlanta.


In fact, speaking of cities like Atlanta, we should mention the difference in size between the Volvo V60 and Volvo V90. If you frequently find yourself in the metro area, it's worth nothing that the Volvo V60 is a bit more compact than the Volvo V90, meaning you'll often have an easier time parallel parking. However, that's not to say that it's difficult with the Volvo V90 given the fact that both models offer a surround-view camera system to make it easy to negotiate your way around tight spaces.

But if you're in need of more cargo space for your next ride, the new Volvo V90 is undoubtedly the best option for your needs. With up to 69 cubic-feet of luggage space available, the new Volvo V90 has quite the interior space advantage over the new Volvo V60, so it's perfect for family getaways and road trips.
