Volvo is planning to unveil the V90 on February 18, but some people don’t care a great deal about embargoes which is why the first official images have hit the web.

If you are a fan of the S90 Sedan that was unveiled several weeks ago, most likely you will also appreciate what Volvo’s designers have done to the wagon. The V90 combines the front half of the S90 Sedan with a rear end derived from the sexy 2014 Concept Estate and dare we say the Swedes have done a remarkable job.

It looks considerably less blocky than the V70 as the new midsize wagon adopts a sloped roofline which creates a more dynamic profile. The L-shaped taillights are nicely executed and remain faithful to those seen on the concept.

Riding on the same Scalable Product Architecture as the S90, the new V90 will be offered exclusively with four-cylinder engines. The cream of the crop will be the T8 version featuring a hybrid setup delivering 410 horsepower thanks to a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter engine teamed up to an electric motor. It won’t remain the flagship version forever as Polestar will get its hands on the V90 for a hybrid performance edition.

Expect to see the all-new Volvo V90 show up in Geneva at the beginning of March and go on sale in the second half of 2016.
