New Volvo V90 D5 Momentum review

The Volvo V90 has already impressed us with its classy cabin and refined drive, but how does the higher-powered D5 diesel fare on UK roads?


With the more powerful D5 engine, the Volvo V90 is an excellent executive estate: it’s fast, comfortable, practical and feels very upmarket inside. The boot isn’t the biggest in its class, which sounds unusual for a Volvo, but there’s loads of space for passengers and the load space is still competitive in its class. The comfortable ride, especially on these 18-inch wheels, is a big plus in the UK as well. We’d still go for the D4, though: the four-cylinder D5 can’t match six-cylinder diesel units for smoothness, so you’re better off saving money and going for the cheaper model.
