Volvo’s new flagship saloon is nothing short of extraordinary. Boasting superior safety, an elegant and understated design, impressive performance and the latest intuitive technological advancements, you’ll want for nothing more.
Momentum and Inscription specifications both offer luxurious leather upholstery in the S90’s calm, spacious, upmarket interior, satellite navigation as standard, plus a selection of sophisticated driving modes to heighten your experience.
The cabin is clean and fresh thanks to CleanZone and climate control, creating a calm and relaxing environment for each and every journey you take in your S90.
The Volvo S90, which sits on the Swedish marque’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, is being launched with D4 and D5 engine options: the D4 manual emits just 109g/km CO2 and can accelerate from 0 – 62mph in just 8.2 seconds. Upgrade to D5 to reduce that to 7.3 seconds, emitting only 133g/km CO2.
Volvo is a brand that’s known for its superior safety, and the S90 doesn’t disappoint. Equipped with Volvo’s City Safety technology, the S90 can calculate collision risks when you’re approaching slower moving or stationary vehicles from behind and even emergency brake on your behalf if deemed necessary.
This Volvo also comes equipped with Pilot Assist, which automatically maintains a set speed or distance to the vehicle ahead, and keeps the S90 properly aligned within lane markings by taking small corrective steering measures. This semi-autonomous driving feature is available at speeds of up to 80mph, meaning that it can take care of you even when motorway driving.
Large Animal Detection features on the S90 too, sensing animals such as deer and horses in the road; the system warns you and consequently brakes for you if no action is taken.
A whole host of other standard safety features also feature on the S90.
A sleek exterior and suave interior epitomise the Volvo S90. Subtle bonnet contour lines, a strong belt line stretching down the length of the car and a smooth coupe-style roofline make for a stunning silhouette, an image that is reflected inside.
The Volvo S90 has been intelligently designed with you in mind – spacious, heated seats are upholstered in high-quality leather and the dashboard is angled towards you to ensure that all controls are easily accessible as you drive.
Momentum entry level trim provides leather upholstery, an 8-inch display screen, LED lights and the marque’s autonomous driving system. High-end Inscription offers Nappa leather seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, hands-free tailgate opening and a 12.3-inch display screen.
Striking ‘Thor’s Hammer’ daytime running lights come as standard on the S90, illuminating the road ahead but also giving this new Volvo creation an authoritative appearance from the front, complemented by a bold grille.
In addition to the many cutting-edge safety features on the Volvo S90, drivers also benefit from a whole host of innovative advancements.
In addition to benefitting from daytime running lights, Active High Beam automatically adjusts headlights from high to low beam when oncoming traffic is detected, reverting to high beam when the road is clear.
The S90 makes parking as easy as possible, with Park Assist calculating whether a parking space is sufficient in size, then taking control of steering to guide you into the space. This is enhanced by an optional 360-degree camera, providing a bird’s eye view of the area surrounding the vehicle. This is displayed on the centre screen and makes parking and low-speed manoeuvring in narrow places easier than ever.
Technology in the S90 is as entertaining as it is advanced, with Apple CarPlay available on the touchscreen and sound played through an advanced Bowers and Wilkins stereo.
