There is a vehicle that holds a solid position in Korea, the grave of the wagon. The Volvo Cross Country V90. The vehicle we met on the 21st of last month was so unique that it was confusing whether it was an SUV or a sedan just by looking at the exterior.
The unusual appearance of the long overall length of 4960mm catches the eye first. Even while driving, the comfort and livability that come from the long body stood out. Above all, the advantage of this vehicle is that it contains all the good points of a sedan and an SUV. The comfortable driving feeling provided by a low garage, the spacious rear seats and the spacious feeling of an SUV that comes when the second row seats are folded, the power to not hesitate on rough roads, and the scarcity of the wagon style are the reasons for choosing this car.
The interior of the car follows the old Volvo grammar. It has a hard yet comfortable seat, a massage function that Koreans like, as well as heated and ventilated seats. In addition, it is equipped with a Bowers & Wilkins sound system that boasts of noise canceling and clear tone, which has been in the spotlight recently. In addition, the Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) worked well on the road without any discomfort.
As Volvo focused on eco-friendly policies, the gasoline mild hybrid engine installed was excellent in quietness. The fact that double laminated glass is applied also contributes to creating a quiet space. There is no vibration or vibration of the engine while driving. However, the powertrain consisting of 250 horsepower (B5) and 300 horsepower (B6) and the front-wheel drive method may be somewhat disappointing for drivers who want a fast and agile driving sensation.
The all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which climbs rough slopes without hesitation, also did not miss the inherent advantages of cross-country. This vehicle, which seems to go well with Mother Nature, is classified as a type 2 low-emission vehicle in the case of the B6 model, and benefits such as exemption from congestion charges such as public parking lots and Seoul Namsan Tunnels No. The price of the car is 69 million won for the B5 model and 79.2 million won for the B6 model. It seems that it is necessary to think about whether to spend an additional 10 million won to increase the 50 horsepower. Even if you decide to buy a wagon over the prejudice, you can get a Volvo key only after enduring the long waiting time of at least 6 months.
