Volvo has taken the wraps off its latest luxury car, the 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country, a beefed-up, ruggedized version of its new V90 wagon.

Like the S90 and V90, the new car is a particularly Swedish take on luxury – plenty of leather and open-pore black walnut wood – but, unlike its siblings, the Cross Country specification increases ground clearance by 2.5-inches to 8.3-inches.

It s an important change, since Volvo drivers aren t just looking for a car that looks like it can go off-road: a significant proportion actually use it that way.

Volvo took the V90 Cross Country to north Sweden for -40 centigrade extremes, to test out the various tweaks and adjustments made along the way.

That includes getting a completely new tire with a softer, more rounded profile.
