It's hard to categorize the 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country, but think of it as a mix between a luxury sedan and a fairly capable midsize SUV.

Because the V90 Cross Country is so much fun and handles some fairly tough terrain, you almost forget it's a Volvo. We can't help but feel that luxury cars should be treated more gently -- but this Volvo is a lot more adventurous than your average luxury car. 8.3 inches of ground clearance helps, too. By comparison, the truck-based Lexus LX570 has 8.9 inches.

On the road, the V90 Cross Country is smooth and quiet, like you'd expect. There's plenty of power thanks to a turbocharged and supercharged 4-cylinder engine.

Yes, the V90 Cross Country feels quick, but the car is really about transitions -- how seamlessly it transitions from on-road to off-road and back again.

Even on muddy roads or gravel, the Cross Country manages to feel composed and refined -- similar to how it feels on pavement. This is largely thanks to double wishbone suspension up front and a multi-link in the rear.

Still, the car has some pretty cool, useful features like a disappearing trailer hitch and a 3,500-pound towing capacity. Again, something you might not want to do with a luxury sedan.

We drove the new Cross Counry on some back roads in Arizona, but this car feels more like it's designed for ski trips to Aspen.

Starting price is about $56,000, and that includes a LOT of standard features like Volvo's Pilot Assist system that helps you stay on the road, adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, Volvo's sensus navigation, leather interior, a big sunroof, keyless entry, heated front seat and steering wheel plus tons of other safety and convenience features.

Even if you're likely to spend most of your time on the pavement, the 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country is really designed for those who want the comfort of a luxury car but aren't afraid to get dirty when they want some adventure.
