The S90 is engineered to strike the perfect balance between comfort and precision. At the front, aluminium double wishbone suspension contributes to quick steering responses. At the rear, our unique integral link suspension keeps weight to a minimum and ensures a smooth ride. Optional rear air suspension keeps the car level and stable on all road surfaces, even when fully loaded.
The S90 offers a choice of Drive Modes to match the road ahead, and your mood. A roller control between the front seats allows you to switch between three settings – which are displayed on the 9" Sensus Touchscreen. These alter the characteristics of the engine, automatic gearbox, steering, brakes, stability control system and engine stop/start. Comfort mode means maximum comfort, Dynamic sharpens up the car's responses and Eco helps maximize efficiency. And, with Individual mode, these characteristics can be combined to create a car tailored to you.
Our compact, lightweight engines keep weight at the front of the car to a minimum to help maximize handling agility. They balance smooth power with exceptional efficiency for responsive acceleration and low fuel consumption and emissions. The turbo- and supercharged T6 engine offers even stronger low-rev responses.
With Drive Modes to suit every journey, your S90 T8 Twin-Engine Plug-In Hybrid is like having three cars in one. In Pure mode, electric-only power allows you to travel far enough on battery power alone for most daily commutes, providing zero-emissions travel in near-silent luxury. Switch to Power mode and the turbocharged and supercharged gasoline engine and powerful electric motor combine to give you powerful acceleration. Hybrid – the default mode – uses the gasoline engine and electric motor in concert for smooth and efficient driving.
250 hp, 258 lb. ft. torque, Direct-Injected Turbocharged Engine, Eight-speed Geartronic™ Automatic with Start/Stop and Adaptive Shift Using low friction engine technology, innovative engine management system, common rail direct fuel injection and advanced turbo technology this engine maximizes power and efficiency. For your everyday driveability, the turbo provides particularly good response at low to medium engine speeds.Low engine weight contributes to balanced handling on winding roads, while Start/Stop technology and our Eco function optimize the powertrain and the climate system to further reduce fuel consumption and CO2-emissions.
LED headlights with our signature "Thor's Hammer" daytime running lights give the S90 a strong identity, and give you clear vision at night. Range-topping Full-LED Active High Beam Illumination technology automatically switches between low and high beams to give you the best light coverage without dazzling other road users. It also includes Active Bending Lights that turn in the same direction as the steering wheel (up to 30˚ in either direction) to give a better view through corners.
Beautifully crafted integrated tailpipes. This is true Scandinavian precision engineering.
Our power-operated panoramic roof adds a superb experience of airiness and light inside your Volvo. For ventilation, the front section opens or tilts at the push of a button. A power-operated sunshade in perforated textile reduces glare on sunny days. The sunshade also maintains the airy feel inside the cabin.
Every seat in the S90 is designed for maximum comfort. Standard Comfort seats provide exceptional support, and optional Contour seats include power-adjustable side bolsters and extending seat cushions. Passengers in the rear get the same levels of comfort, with optional heating and plenty of legroom, thanks to the long wheelbase and the front seats' slim design.
The relaxed and refined feeling of the S90 is enhanced by Volvo Cars' CleanZone technology, which helps keep the air inside your car feeling fresh and clean, no matter the quality outside. All air, even if it is recirculated, passes through a multi-filter to minimize the levels of dust, pollen and other particles entering the cabin.
Hand-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel in uni-deco trim adds a satin silk frame to the wheel's boss and spokes. Distinctive zig-zag stitching adds to the finely crafted feel.
4-Zone Electronic Climate Control, 12.3" Digital Driver Display Headlight High Pressure Cleaning, Active Bending Lights (ABL) - added to standard LED Headlights w/ Thor's Hammer DRL & Auto Highbeam (AHB)
Our safety innovations are the result of decades of innovation, and lie at the heart of every Volvo car. A rigid safety cell constructed from ultra high-strength boron steel protects the car's occupants, while pre-tensioners and load limiters allow safety belts to work effectively in the event of an impact, without exerting too much pressure on the body.
Protecting people – whether inside or outside the car – is the aim of City Safety. This Volvo Cars innovation looks out for potential danger by using radar and camera technology to identify other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals ahead, day or night. If City Safety detects an imminent collision, it alerts the driver and can automatically apply the brakes if the driver doesn't react in time. This can help avoid or mitigate a collision. Steering Support is also part of City Safety, an innovation that helps the driver to steer away from danger as effectively and safely as possible.
Accidents where a vehicle leaves the road are one of the most common types. Volvo Cars' Run-off road Mitigation helps make these less likely to happen by detecting if the car is about to leave the road unintentionally between speeds of 65-140km/h. It can then use steering and braking to guide the car back onto the right path. In the event of a car leaving the road, Run-off Road Protection – another Volvo Cars innovation – reduces the chances of serious injury. The front seat frame absorbs the impact of a hard landing on the body, while optional variants of Volvo Cars safety belts automatically tighten.
As you steer, the headlights turn to illuminate the curve ahead. LED illumination allows you to enjoy high beam with even greater radiation and range. The system uses a camera at the upper edge of the windshield to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles or the taillights of a vehicle directly ahead. When this happens, the headlights will automatically switch from high beams to low beams. When the camera no longer detects the headlights/ taillights of other vehicles, your headlights will switch back to high beams after several seconds. Active Bending Lights are added to standard Full LED Headlights w/ Thor's Hammer Daytime Running Lights & Auto Highbeam.
