The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is probably the most direct rival to the V90, as it’s the only one of the mid-size German luxury sedans to offer a normal, passenger-car station wagon.
Compared to that Volvo, the E-Class is slightly smaller, although in wagon form it manages to go a bit more utilitarian in its roofline, adding up to a bit more usable cargo space.
The Audi Allroad is essentially a wagon version of the A4; as such, it’s a lot smaller than the V90.
The Subaru Outback is a generous mid-size model and essentially the wagon version of the Legacy sedan—albeit with more of a focus on rugged, all-weather capability (which is on the way for Volvo in a V90 Cross Country model).
The Ford Flex is an unusual, super-boxy alternative to the V90 wagon; don’t let the profile fool you, as it drives like a car.
And the Jaguar F-Pace is shaping up to be a strong rival for a wide range of vehicles, including wagons such as the V90; the Jaguar is the most like a sport wagon of all the SUVs, so it may be even closer to the sweet spot for some who would prefer something closer to an SUV ride height but the driving experience of a passenger car.
