Though the old station wagon is a thing of the past, as are most minivans these days, wagons and hatchbacks have experienced a resurgence in popularity. In fact, you could say they are more popular than ever... and more fun to drive than ever, too. Many brands provide such options, but which should you choose? Well, let us help by comparing the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon vs the 2019 Volvo V90.
Like we said above, many of these wagons are fun to drive. They offer sporty sedan-like driving dynamics while also having the versatility of an SUV. But, not all models are created equal. Indeed, the E-Class Wagon comes with a standard engine that cranks out an impressive 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The standard engine on the V90 doesn’t even come close, nor does the available engine option on the V90 for those who want to pay more. Moreover, while the V90 comes standard with a FWD powertrain, the E-Class has standard 4MATIC® AWD.

Now, let’s talk about cargo space for a second. After all, that’s probably one of the biggest reasons you’re looking at buying a wagon. If you do a simple search online for maximum cargo capacity in these two models, you’d find that the V90 has a little bit more cargo space. But, thankfully, you came to this page to do your research, and here you’ll find that although that statement is true, the E-Class delivers significantly greater cargo volume with the seats up than the V90. In fact, the V90 disappoints with only 19.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up, making it hard to really utilize that wagon shape for cargo if you also have a need for transporting passengers in the back seats at the same time.
