That pretty much sums up the 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country.
It is a good fit for all Canadian seasons with its sleek styling, high ground clearance and all weather capability that can take you along roads where the snow hasn’t yet been plowed. The Cross Country has an impressive 8.4 inches of clearance.
Styled like a wagon but with all-wheel drive and the rugged durability of an SUV the Cross Country lives up to it’s name.
You can select from five different drive modes depending on where you are and what type of driving you will be doing. Comfort, Eco, Dynamic, Off-road, and Individual modes are available.
Under the hood, there is a 2.0 Litre, four-cylinder power-plant, supercharged and turbocharged, that will produced 316 horsepower while creating 295 foot pounds of torque, so travelling on hilly terrain won’t slow you down.
Inside, the Cross Country is created with unique Scandinavian design that wraps around the driver and allow a maximum amount of light into the cabin.
Advanced technology assists you along your way and best of all, it’s high tech that is easy to use.
The Sensus Navigation system provides detailed routing with minimal attention from the driver.
The Detect and Respond system allows for large animal detection for when you are out exploring the backroads or mountain ranges. The same system can be switched to City Safety which detects danger ahead and help avoid collisions with animals, pedestrians, and cyclists.
There is also Pilot Assist that can make gentle adjustments to steering when following lane markings up to highway speed.
For those that really like to be in command of their vehicle, Volvo On Call will connect you to your Cross Country and allow you to send commands through your phone.
Top this all off with an 8-speed speed automatic transmission and there is no limit where your Cross Country can take you.
