Volvo V90 Cross Country Hasbrouck Heights 

A Look at How the 2018 V90 Cross Country Compares to its Top-of-the-Line Competition

When you want a car that can do a little bit of everything, a good crossover is hard to beat. Incorporating all the best elements of an SUV with the nimble road performance of a sedan, there's a reason many drivers prefer them as their vehicles of choice. If you're a driver in Hoboken or Jersey City and you're looking for a luxury-equipped crossover car, you might be wondering which one's the best for you.

And when you're looking for a luxury vehicle to boot?  Deciding on just one vehicle can become even harder. What makes one feature-rich vehicle better than another? Why should you buy one car over another? We wouldn't blame you for feeling unsure about what to choose. Respected automakers like Volvo, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW all have solid options in their vehicle lineup. That being said, there is one choice that stands out from the rest of the pack in our mind. That would be the 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country.

What makes it so special? The best way to explain is to simply look at it alongside its road rivals.
