The New V90 Wagon is on Dealer Lots… It’s Not Special Order Only

According to Jalopnik and confirmed by an Auto Trader search, the special-order-only new Volvo V90 is not actually a special order car. As I type, there are 30 V90s sitting on dealer lots across the country.

Back in January, I posted about the unfortunate special order-ness of the new V90, given that Americans seemingly to a wo/man dislike non-crossover wagons, or just LOVE the higher seating position and faux-offroading scent that envelops crossovers.

Well it seems like some dealers are getting a message that wagon love is back.

My two cents is that the love is back because of, among other things, performance is enhanced on non-crossover models because there’s typically less weight to move and they sit lower to the ground.

Wagon-enthusiasts rejoice — the new V90 is coming to America! Alright, so it won’t exactly be on dealership lots, but you will be able to purchase the V90 through Volvo’s Online Concierge or via Overseas Delivery. Details on the North American version of the V90 are still sparse, but one thing everyone can agree on is that it is gorgeous.

Car and Driver says “While the S90 is handsome, the V90 looks even better, with the elongated greenhouse enhancing the new model’s clean sculpting.” Motor Trend is even more enamored with the design, calling the Volvo V90 “arguably the most stylish conventional wagon on the market, with an avant-garde design and a clean, stylish interior in the grandest of Scandinavian tradition.”
