Volvo V90 Cross Country: What else can you buy

Volvo V90 Cross Country has been launched in India at Rs 60 lakhs (ex-showroom). The third entry of the 90 Series from Volvo after the XC90 and S90, the V90 is an Estate. The V90 Cross Country has no direct rival in the country. Here are the top alternatives for V90 Cross Country that you can opt for in the price of V90 Cross Country D5 Inscription.

The V90 Cross Country is priced on par at the other German executive sedans. For a whole Rs 6 lakhs less, you can get yourself a long-wheel-base E-Class saloon in the E220d trim. Or for a lakh extra, you can get the BMW 5 Series in the top spec 530d M Sport with a 3.0-litre diesel motor and ‘pure driving pleasure’. The Jaguar XF Portfolio is the leaping cat which is stunning to look at and is Rs 3 lakhs less than the Scandinavian Estate.

If the executive sedan is too boring for you, then there are proper SUVs to consider as well. The top-spec Rover Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic gets you a potent off-roader with a cheeky-looking SUV appeal at an undercutting price tag. The three-pointed star here is the GLE in the 250d guise. With a 2.2-litre diesel mill, the GLE is a proper five-seater SUV with bigger boot space, higher ride height, massive fuel tank and larger boot space. The same goes for the X5 xDrive 30d, but the Beemer is a lot expensive than the V90. For a little more, the Mitsubishi Montero brings in seven seats with a 3.2-litre V6 under the hood and locking differentials.

One of the reason to buy the V90 Cross is to stand out amongst the common crop of cars plying on the road. However, there are other unique body styles that can also be opted for at the price of the Cross Country estate. The Audi TT is at the priced exactly the same price, but it is a sports coupe with a petrol engine and is also primarily an enthusiast’s car. The Mercedes-Benz C-Cabriolet, which runs like greased lightningthe wind, is also at least Rs 3 lakh cheaper than the V90. Apart from these two, the Audi S5 Sportback is a performance sedan with a coupe-like styling and houses a very potent engine under the its hood. The V90 Cross Country, however, is a lotmuch more practical, spacious and a sensible choice compared to these the other three.
