Scandinavian design is known for its simplicity and functionality, and as the sole Swedish carmaker selling road-legal cars, Volvo puts this aesthetic front and center with the 2018 S90 sedan. From the outside, there’s a stately heft that used to be the domain of German car companies. This year, that heft is further emphasized as the car is 4.5 inches longer than the previous year. On the inside, it’s elegantly simple, with impeccable materials and an undeniable air of luxury.
The S90 also rides high on Volvo’s reputation for safety and comes with all of the latest advanced features found in other cars, as well as a few that are unique to the brand. The sedan’s appeal is further bolstered by some of the most comfortable seats in the industry and a large, ultra-modern central touchscreen that reminds us of the massive screen in Tesla vehicles.
Pricewise, the 2018 Volvo S90 is in lockstep with midsize luxury sedans that include the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The S90 is quite a bit larger, however, so it could be argued that you’re getting quite a bit more for your money.
From any angle, the S90 looks elegant and powerful. A solid, sculpted whole that is always sophisticated. The muscular lines are distinctly Volvo, anchoring the car to its heritage while connecting it to the future. The S90 is packed with innovative technology that serves one purpose: to simplify your life, and one principle: it must be easy to use. A large touch screen means we’ve been able to reduce the number of buttons to a minimum, and it’s laid out in portrait format so reading and scrolling maps is much easier. Run-off Road Mitigation, which comes standard on every S90, is a world-first innovation that steers you back on track if the car starts to veer off the road accidentally. This is our approach to technology – it simply works for you.
Impressive safety features (a Volvo hallmark); tasteful yet luxurious interior design; impressive fuel economy for a large sedan; great infotainment system.
