Bold, beautiful and innovative, the Volvo S90 has a legitimate claim to being the only real challenger to BMW’s dominance of the luxury sedan market. While much of the attention will rightly focus on the spectacular job Volvo engineers have done with the exterior, this is a vehicle that’s been fine-tuned for a wonderfully enjoyable and comfortable drive. The luxurious and feature-packed interior also ensures unbeatable value without compromising on quality.
With this in mind, if drivers want to stand out amongst the BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi crowd, we’d highly recommend checking out the Volvo S90.
Turn heads with eye-catching S90 style
Part of the Volvo’s appeal is its understated refinement and cool Swedish style. While BMWs and Mercedes look the part, their market dominance means that they’re no longer as exclusive or representative of aspirational executive style as they once were. The Volvo, on the other hand, benefits by being a little unusual, yet still stylish. Boasting slightly extended proportions that lend the car a long, sleek look, the subtle contours that define the front end also ensure that the S90 communicates an understated elegance and relaxed sophistication.
Driving innovation – high-end performance and tomorrow’s technology
In 2019, Volvo became the first large car manufacturer to announce that it would pivot towards hybrid or fully electric vehicles. The S90 represents the vanguard of that transition resulting in a new generation of Volvos that are both driver and environmentally friendly.
With the S90, Volvo has seriously refined hybrid technology and have succeeded in designing a truly exceptional engine.
One of the best safety records on the market
In recent years, Volvo has steadily built a reputation for excellence when it comes to safety. Utilising Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) safety platform, the S90 has performed exceptionally well in the most rigorous safety tests the manufacturer can put it through. In large part, this is due to the extensive array of safety features shipped as standard. They include,
- Rearview camera
- Blind-spot monitoring
- Automatic emergency braking
- Adaptive cruise control
- Front and rear parking sensors
- Lane departure warning and lane-keep assist
- Automatic high beam headlights
The pristine finish comes as standard
While not quite as bold as the exterior, the S90’s interior is just as satisfying. Taking a minimalist approach, the car’s cabin is refined and elegant, with excellent value for money. Leather seats come as standard, as does a panoramic moonroof and automatic climate control.
The high-end trim provides a touch of class, and there is a wide range of materials, including wood, leather and brushed metal, across the interior, showing that Volvo has taken care of even the smallest details.
Enjoy total control without the distractions
The Volvo S90 also delivers when it comes to in-car gadgetry. Centred around the highly regarded Volvo Sensus infotainment system, the central console includes an intuitive touchscreen display – though it is given a little twist via a neat and surprisingly practical vertical orientation. Alongside the 9″ touchscreen, there is an array of additional features, including:
- Satellite radio
- 10-speaker stereo system
- Bluetooth connectivity
- USB port
Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto come as standard in all models, as do keyless lock/unlock functionality and a push-button ignition system.
