Volvo’s biggest estate comes in a plug-in petrol electric version, which may be ideal for drivers wanting space for dogs and other accoutrements in the back without having to go the whole hog and get an SUV (several German manufacturers please note!). All-electric driving range is a very reasonable 28 miles. Overall power output is just over 386 bhp with company car tax-assisting CO2 emissions of just 46g/km and a combined fuel economy of 141.2 mpg. This figure is helped by the fact that the electric section of the drive-train can continue working up to motorway speeds and beyond (78mph). The V90’s 4-cylinder petrol engine produces 312bhp driving through the front wheels. Talking of which, we like the neat way the car’s FWD petrol-only mode morphs into 4WD when slippery conditions require it. Several attractive options are available including adaptive damping with air rear suspension. The dog (if you do have one) will then enjoy an even more comfortable ride in the back.
