2016 Volvo V90 revealed ahead of February 18 launch


Just one week before the official unveiling of the Volvo V90, Volvo has generously published the first few official images of its latest wagon (previously leaked), one that will sit next to the new S90.

The V90 also receives a different set of rear lights, which looks more conservative compared to the controversial S90. The front end meanwhile, is an exact copy of the S90, which is good.

A hotter treatment from Polestar is also in the works as well, bringing memories of the flying Volvo 850 wagon back to our minds.

No official release date has been revealed, but by the looks of it, the V90 will most likely grace our roads sometime in 2017, right after the S90’s Malaysia arrival.
