There is an ongoing craze for SUVs but it does not mean that wagons are to be put away for good. Especially if you have the 2019 V90 Cross-Country that seems to have the same high-end utility features of a real SUV. The Cross Country version offers plenty of characteristics to like and you can instantly see why it is considered legendary when compared to a popular luxury mid-size car. In this comparison, we will match the V90 Cross Country against the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class to check which one is truly irresistible.

Design & Style

The V90 Cross Country's exterior is toughened up in a rather stylish way. It now has strong body lines, attractive Thor's Hammer headlights, and new grille to make it look smashing. The vehicle is also added with at least 2.7 inches of height if you want to take it to the wilderness.

Compared to the macho look of the V90 Cross Country, the E-Class is more on the sexy and curvy styling. Such a curvy shape is an iconic look from Mercedes and all variants, wagon, sedan, and cabriolet, sports it.

Technology & Safety

Like the attractive exterior, the V90 Cross Country's cabin is filled with modern in-car tech that is drool-worthy. It has the latest smartphone integrations as well as other popular apps like Spotify and Pandora.  It has the Sensus infotainment system with crisp screen graphics, intuitive controls, and a robust stack of safety aids. While the E-Class looks plain on the outside, it has impressive infotainment via the COMAND system.


To compare the cars for performance, the base engine of the V90 Cross Country has a standard 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque from the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The E-Class, on the other hand as a 241 hp engine under its hood. Both vehicles guarantee a fun driving experience but the V90 Cross Country runs more effortlessly on the road. It also has a reliable brake system and steering that feels direct and accurate.

The Bottom Line

Many people would not be surprised to see both the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the 2019 Volvo V90 Cross Country as alternatives for the popular SUVs. These vehicles are not the typical wagons that are generally compromised because of its size and limited capabilities. As you can see, both vehicles have characteristics that can take down most SUVs. In this comparison, the V90 Cross Country is a winner for having the best design and styling and better road performance.
