It’s pretty clear Volvo wants the new V90 to stand on the shoulders of giants: in this promotional shot, the new car is parked next to the Duett, the Amazon, the 1800ES, the 240, the 740 and the 850 T-5 R. The rear end isn’t quite as vertical as on most of the old boxes, or the recent V70:s, but the car is still quite obviously a Volvo wagon – more so than the V40:s, V50:s and V60:s.

As our Hooniversal commentariat consists largely of fans of the old bricks, which one of the above cars is your favorite? I would probably go for the wild yellow streak that is the 850, but I wouldn’t kick any other out of my parking spot.
