Suave and sophisticated is the name of the game when stepping into the interior of the Volvo V90 Cross Country. The surfaces are extremely clean, with the dashboard being uncluttered aside from the touchscreen display right in the middle. You'll also struggle to find any cheap or unattractive materials, as most touchpoints are covered in soft materials, while low-traffic areas are trimmed in genuine wood or cool metal. The cabin is otherwise spacious and high-tech, with upscale materials and great build quality being key features.
There is seating for five inside the Volvo V90 Cross Country, while interior space is exceptional thanks to the wagon layout that enhances not only cargo capacity but also rear passenger room. Nevertheless, it is still those in the front positions that can stretch out the most, with 37.8 inches of headroom and 42.2 inches of legroom. Passengers in the second row get almost as much headroom at 37.7 inches, but not quite as much legroom, with just 35.9 inches. The front seats in the Volvo V90 Cross Country are power-adjustable as standard, so finding a comfortable driving position is easy, and you get heating, too, for those cold mornings. The high ground clearance also makes it easy to enter and exit the vehicle.

Unsurprisingly, the materials used inside the V90 are top-notch, with leather coming standard in the base-level Plus trim, while the Ultimate upgrades to perforated Nappa leather. The interior colors for the Volvo V90 Cross Country include Charcoal, Maroon Brown, or Blond upholstery in the Plus, all paired with a Charcoal interior or Charcoal, Slate, Amber, or Blond in the Ultimate trim. None of these options cost any extra, and there are no restrictions on how you pair the interior color scheme with the exterior.
Wagons are generally known for their superior passenger and cargo space, but this is where the Volvo V90 Cross Country falls a little short of the competition. Behind the rear seats, there is just 25.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Still, this is more than any sedan and should accommodate almost any daily need. The trunk volume can be expanded by folding down the second-row seats, presenting you with a total of 53.9 cubes. Rival wagons like the Mercedes E-Class are better regardless of the seating arrangements.
Luckily, the V90 offers loads of in-cabin storage for smaller items. This includes four door pockets, two cupholders in the front, and another two in the rear fold-down armrest, as well as a standard glove compartment and a small bin in the center console. The center armrest cubby is capable of storing larger items.

Plenty of features come standard in even the base-level Plus trim. These include power-adjustable front seats with heating, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, push-button start, a 12.3-inch digital cluster, and a long list of safety features. Comprising the safety suite is forward collision avoidance, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, park assist front and rear, and Pilot Assist. Moving up to the Ultimate trim adds a head-up display, front-seat ventilation, and rear-door sun curtains. A heated steering wheel and heated rear seats can be added optionally.
Volvo equips all its models with impressive infotainment suites. In the case of the V90 Cross Country, this comprises a portrait-oriented, nine-inch touchscreen that houses the latest operating software. Functions supported include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth streaming, navigation, SiriusXM, and Google Assistant as part of Google built-in. Many of these can be accessed via the voice controls by simply saying, "Hey, Google." Sound is provided by a 10-speaker high-performance audio system in the Plus trim, though it can be upgraded to the 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system that is standard in the Ultimate. The top-tier trim can also upgrade to a 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins system.
As standard, 22.5 cubic feet of space is available behind the rear-most seats. However, if they are folded down, you get 53.9 cubic feet.
There are five seating positions as standard.
A total of four upholders are present within the cabin: two in the front and two in the back.
