10) Volvo V90
The V90 is Volvo’s luxurious estate car which finds itself at home among serene vistas. Volvo offers the car with a choice of engines including four-cylinder turbocharged diesels, and four-cylinder supercharged petrol variants. There is even a gas-electric hybrid option.
The standard 2.0 liter, 150 hp diesel engine pairs with the 8-speed Geartronic automatic transmission and propels the V90 from 0 to 60 mph in 10.5 seconds. Top speed is 127 mph. The car’s in-built speed limiter functionality is accessible from steering wheel-mounted buttons.
Part of the car’s unique safety and comfort suite is a feature which supplements adaptive cruise control by adding gentle steering support to help keep the car in its lane. It also assists in maintaining a set speed or distance from the car in front. Another Volvo feature known as ‘City Safety’ detects large obstacles on the road and supports the driver with audible and visible warnings, and braking assistance when needed.
