Driving a luxury vehicle means taking advantage of more power under the hood and exterior styling that you can show off on the road. The Volvo V90 and the Mercedes E-Class Wagon are top-selling models that prove to be reliable and have a high value with the materials that are used. Here are a few of the comparisons between both vehicles when you're looking to drive a new luxury wagon.

Interior Features 

The interior of the 2021 Volvo V90 features a roomy cabin that makes it easy to stretch out due to an ample amount of head and legroom. Suede and leather seats create a luxurious design that is purely Scandinavian, combining beauty, simplicity and functionality. A panoramic sunroof, satellite radio, 10-way power driver's seat with memory, a 9-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and four-zone automatic climate control are offered and create an accommodating cabin. 

Inside the 2020 Mercedes E-Class Wagon is a quiet and comfortable cabin that will feel like an extension of your home. Ambient lighting adds a luxurious touch, along with front seats that are supportive but still offer a high level of comfort. Unfortunately, the back seats sit lower than the V90, which affects visibility and makes it difficult to get comfortable. Voice controls, a 12-inch infotainment system, two USB ports, Bluetooth, a WiFi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are also standard. Many of the impressive features are only available as upgrades, which includes the cabin fragrance system, a 13-speaker surround sound system, a panoramic sunroof, and wireless charging. 


Equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower, the new Volvo V90 proves to have impressive performance compared to many of its rivals. For a wagon, the car proves to be fun to drive with different driving modes that are available, which includes Eco, Individual, Off Road, Comfort, and Dynamic. The V90 offers ground clearance ranging from 6 inches in the R-Design to an impressive 8.3 inches in the V90 Cross Country, which makes it easier to drive on rough surfaces and in the snow. With 23 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, the wagon proves to be economical without compromising on performance. 

Adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking are some of the highlights of the 2020 E Class Wagon's performance. The wagon has a top speed of 129 mph and can reach 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Although the car proves to have excellent acceleration, the handling is compromised and will remind you that you're driving a larger vehicle compared to the superb handling of the V90. It's output is also average and the engine doesn't encourage as many joy rides as what you'll get with the Volvo wagon. 


The 2021 Volvo V90 continues to be a leader in safety and doesn't compromise with the amount of driver aids that are available. Some of the most competitive safety features that come standard include rain-sensing windshield wipers, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, cross traffic alert, and rear-collision mitigation to compensate for mistakes that are made by the driver and increase the level of safety in harsh weather conditions.
