The Volvo S90 is a Finalist for the 2017 North American Car of the Year Award!
Currently the only vehicle available in the United States with standard semi-autonomous driving technology, the new Volvo S90 just became a finalist in the 2017 North American Car of the Year competition. The 2017 Volvo S90 is an executive 4-door sedan with a 5-door estate model, with a design that won the Production Car Design of the Year Award in 2015. A 2.0L, 4-cylinder engine provides 250 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque. This vehicle has been released in competition with the BMW 5-series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class and competes with the Acura RLX, Audi A6, Cadillac CTS, Hyundai Genesis, Infinity Q70 and Jaguar XF.
A Stylish Look Updated for the Modern Era
The Volvo S90's design is low slung, with a lower roofline and a narrow concave grille. Both the windshield and the back window are heavily sloped, with passenger side windows narrowed and elongated. All of this combines to give the vehicle a bolder and more aggressive look than previous models of the Volvo. Compared to the Volvo S80, a traditional executive luxury vehicle, the Volvo S90 is both modernized and updated.
The Technology of the Volvo S90
As with many luxury and executive vehicles, the Volvo S90 comes with a wide array of entertainment and technology options. Technology includes a built-in navigation system and trip computer, backup camera, rear parking aid and a fully-featured Sensus infotainment system. SiriusXM's Bluetooth audio makes it easy to sync media devices, while a 360 camera improves parking and safety. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both available for easy connection to smartphones and tablets, and the adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping system comes standard.
A Lot of Power in a Small Engine
Executive vehicles aren't just intended for luxury: they're also intended to be superb, all-around drivers. That's why the S90 comes with a 250 HP engine that is able to achieve an impressive 34 MPG on the highway. But some individuals want both luxury and performance; there's also an option for them. An added supercharger in the S90 T7 model brings it up to 316 HP, at the cost of reducing the vehicle to 31 MPG in highway driving. The S90 T7 also has all-wheel drive for better handling and offers optional suspension packages.
