About the Volvo S90

The Volvo S90 delivers unrivaled refinement and cutting-edge technology blended with contemporary Scandinavian design. Make a lasting first impression with the elegant exterior of the S90 featuring an extended wheelbase for a smoother ride and a low roofline for a sleek profile. Volvo S90 models also have one of the most spacious interiors in its class. With enough standard safety features to rival the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class - the S90 prioritizes your safety like never before. In addition to the standard turbo- and supercharged T6 powertrain, you can also choose the Recharge powertrain, a plug-in hybrid that gives you blistering performance, impressive efficiency, and low emissions.

What the Critics Say

"The S90's cabin is by far its most impressive feature. A mixture of high-end materials-open-pore wood, genuine leather, brushed metal, and finely grained plastics-come together in a cohesive and undeniably modern space." -- Car and Driver

"We understand the temptation to go for an established midsize luxury sedan like the E-Class or BMW 5 Series, but automakers like Volvo provide a compelling alternative. The S90 offers standout style inside and out, not to mention a capacious cabin and a reason to look past the usual players." -- MotorTrend

Volvo S90 Features

Volvo S90 Performance

High-Performance Powertrains

Volvo S90 drivers will have their choice of two distinctive powertrain options. The T6 powertrain is a turbo- and supercharged 4 cylinder gasoline-powered engine delivering 316 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque for exceptional performance in both cities and on highways. The T6 AWD proves to be an ideal powertrain for its blend of turbocharged and supercharged technology, a smooth 8-speed Geartronic™ automatic gearbox, and versatile all-wheel drive.

For exhilarating driving thrills combined with unparalleled efficiency, the top-tier Recharge Plug-In Hybrid with eAWD offers the ultimate Volvo S90 experience. Blending a high-performance gasoline engine to drive the front wheels, and an electric motor driving the rear wheels, this 400-horsepower powertrain delivers surprising acceleration, while also allowing for zero-emission commuting of up to 21 miles.

Volvo S90 Interior

Luxurious Interior

Inside the Volvo S90, drivers and passengers alike will find a comfortable environment tailored with premium materials and expert craftsmanship. Natural materials such as Linear Walnut Wood set the mood inside this luxury S90. The new R-Design trim adds unique metal mesh inlays for a sportier look. Standard seating and steering wheel leather upholstery complements its naturalistic inlays. Advanced tech features blend seamlessly with its contemporary interior design.

Automatic climate control paired with CleanZone technology helps ensure a healthy interior environment and fresh cabin air by filtering particulates, odors, dust, and pollen while continuously monitoring air quality. Add some fresh air as well with a standard power moonroof to bring in natural light and air. For an even higher level of comfort, you can make the S90's ventilated front seats even more comfortable with massage functions for the ultimate experience in relaxation.
