Starting price for a XC90 T6 Momentum (in Sweden) is about $67k while the V90 is $55k. That is more than 12 % difference. With that said, I do think the price difference will be smaller in the rest of Europe and in NA than in Sweden.

It is very important for Volvo to keep their market share in their home market.

You're correct about the price difference. I compared wrong engines. Thanks for the correction.

Well if it does end up being !5%-20% cheaper to a comparably equipped XC90 then I will end up with a V90. Now if they would just install rear facing seats in the way back like Mercedes or Tesla.

I dream of it being that much cheaper, that's for sure.

Just as an FYI - R-Design and Cross Country info usually trickles out after the initial "new model" unveils. In many cases, they are delayed until six months to a year or so after the base model launches, but that may not be the case with this new generation.

I've never understood why people would want to put their kids in the trunk facing the rear. What if you get rear ended by an SUV (or a truck!)?

Many thanks, I would have expected to see the CC model at Geneva auto show but probably it's too soon.. Can't wait to see the new V90 in person BTW ;)

jack up the V90 by two inches it will become V90CC. :) Well of course some cosmetic stuff is needed.

I believe we'll see V90 at Geneve and the V90 Cross Country at New York.

I think about this when I put my dog back there. :(

That would be a good reason to actually go to NY.

Actually, Volvo wagons have a completely different rear structure compared to the sedans. In a rear impact the cargo area would stay intact and actually "tip" (rotate) upwards, resulting in a rather severe kink over the c pillar but keeping the interior structure intact. And in a front impact (which is a much more common crash scenario than rear impact) rearward facing is a much safer position to be in as the crash forces are spread across the full back rather that the much smaller surface area of a safety belt in a forward facing seating position. I had many Volvo wagons with third seats carrying kids. The only real issue was needing to use a roof box to carry stuff.

See, make it happen Volvo, some jump seats in the back and an R-Design without black being the only interior color! Make me put my money where my mouth is.

Yeah.

I have to say, I wish I didn't live in Houston. I sat in the R Design seats this past weekend, and they are noticeably more comfortable to this body than the Inscription seats.

What are the odds that the US market will get either the V90 or V90cc in R-design trim?

V90CC is a trim level, like R-design is.

With that, there will be a V90, V90CC and V90 R-design.
