Used Car of the Day: 2018 Volvo V90 T6 R-Design
Yep, we're going back to the wagon well with today's used car of the day. What do you expect? We're journalists. We're obligated to love wagons.
Today's wagon of choice is a 2018 Volvo V90 T6 R-Design. This 31,500-mile car is in San Francisco and is Polestar optimized. It's an automatic and the seller is asking $47,000.
Features include 20-inch wheels, heated seats, and carbon-fiber decorative inlays. The seller is the sole owner and says the car has most available options.
There is some minor cosmetic damage and the CarFax does have three reports for minor damage -- all apparently repaired.

- MaintenanceCosts The GT-Line and Long Range aren't going to get more than about 250 miles EPA. That's pretty disappointing for a vehicle in a class that often gets used for long trips. I would have expected at least one trim to hit 300 miles EPA.
- Watersketch I didn't like them but my cost-conscious boss loved them. Said the 4-cyl versions were a lot cheaper to run than the full-size vans they replaced.
- William Piper Awful exterior styling…would be a hard pass for that alone. Perhaps for $60k, but $100 large? For this?
- Sgeffe Gee, a hybrid can have some actual horsepower behind it! With a four-pot ICE as the generator!See what Stellantis can do, and with 1.3 liters, Honda?! (Whose “Accord” will be spanked by a PRIUS!! 🤬🙄)
- Kcflyer I get the argument to not compete in the sedan market in order to maximize short term profits on SUV's and Trucks. But what happens if Toyota ever gets serious and builds a full line of light and heavy duty trucks? What I'm saying is maybe Ford should continue to build the best vehicles they can in this and other mainstay segments. To paraphrase the last good Dem president, not because it is easy, but because it is hard. Even if the Japanese don't eventually bankrupt Ford, Tesla just might. I understand their sedans sell quite well.
NormSV650, I like the Regal TourX styling a lot, but the interior materials are cheap and look and feel bad by comparison to the V90. In addition, the Volvo has more interior width, a wider track, more horsepower, better mileage and a greater range of available equipment. That said, the TourX was discontinued three model years ago, and the non-Cross Country V90 is no longer available for order in as of 2022 (the V90 Cross Country continues to be sold here). That makes both only available as used cars, and as used cars, there asking prices are no longer nearly as far apart. If I had it to do over again, I'd still buy the Volvo. It's been a comfortable good performer that has been flawless and remains one of the best looking cars on the road. I hate that I can no longer order a wagon. All the remaining ones are jacked up with cladding (Subaru Outback, V90 Ctross Country, Audi Allroad, Mercedes All_Terraine, etc.). That said, the TourX is a real bargain now, if you can find one that has been well cared for. YMMV.
Sorry, but when buying complex European machinery, I expect more of a discount in exchange for the lack of warranty. In the low $30k's, maybe we are talking. At close to $50k? Nah.
