Engineered to strike the perfect balance between comfort and precision, the V90 is a car to be enjoyed. At the front, aluminium double wishbone suspension contributes to responsive steering and good handling. The rear suspension uses Volvo Cars’ unique integral link, which improves the ride and helps to save weight.
With a choice of Drive Modes, the V90 offers different driving experiences to match the road ahead, or your mood. Switching between three settings alters the characteristics of the engine, gearbox, steering, brakes, stability control system and engine stop/start. Comfort mode sets the car up for comfort, Dynamic sharpens the responses and Eco maximizes efficiency. A fourth mode, Individual, allows you to combine characteristics to create a drive tailored to you.
The chassis of your Volvo has been tuned to deliver a refined, smooth ride as well as sharp handling. All to give you a car that is just as comfortable and fun to drive on challenging country roads as it is on the highway. The advanced aluminum double wishbone suspensions at the front wheels provide perfectly balanced road holding and steering characteristics. At the rear, an exclusive integral axle allows all characteristics to be individually tuned for your comfort and enjoyment.
Our AWD technology with Instant Traction™ gives you an edge by increasing driving stability and traction – on all road surfaces and in all weathers. As conditions change, wheels with the best grip get the most power to optimise your drive. Under normal conditions practically all the power is distributed to the front wheels to minimise fuel consumption without compromising on stability. And when needed, up to 50% of the engine's power can be distributed to the rear wheels. At standstill, full all-wheel drive is always engaged to prepare for maximum traction. This also facilitates take-off in slippery conditions or if you for example pull a boat trailer up a ramp.
The V90 is a car of character and sophistication, balancing pure Scandinavian design with purpose. Its distinctive outline is reinforced by tail lights that frame the rear window. The impression is one of strength and solidity, with details that are subtle and distinctive.
LED headlights with our signature “Thor’s Hammer” daytime running lights give the V90 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.
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. And when you enter your car in sunny days, the sunshade closes automatically as soon as the outside temperature reaches 25° C. Dark tinted laminated glass further increases comfort and security. And if you've forgot to close the panoramic roof after you've parked your car, it can be closed from the outside with the remote control.
The V90 has a spacious, flexible interior that helps you live life to the full. The 25.5 cubic foot load compartment increases to 53.9 cubic feet with the backrests down, simply by pressing a button in the load compartment. An underfloor compartment provides secure storage that locks with the tailgate.
The V90 is full of thoughtful touches to make loading and carrying easier. Four metal eyelets in the floor provide lashing points to secure cargo, and a load net helps to secure loose objects. Shopping bag hooks and a bag holder that folds out of the floor stop bags from sliding around the load compartment. And the tailgate comes with a hands-free option, allowing you to open it by moving your foot under the rear bumper.
The seats in your Volvo may well be the most important ones in your life – over the lifetime of your car, you will probably spend thousands of hours sitting in them. That’s why we spent so much time developing their ergonomic sculpted design, firm yet comfortable, with supporting side cushions and ergonomic padding.
CleanZone lets you and your passengers enjoy clean, healthy cabin air. It monitors incoming air and shuts the cabin's air intakes if harmful substances are detected. A multiﬁlter reduces the levels of dust, pollen, particles and chemical odours. And to prepare a fresh cabin environment on a warm day, the automatic CleanZone function efﬁciently ventilates the cabin when you unlock the car.
Pilot Assist helps reduce the effort of driving in heavy traffic, by keeping the V90 at a set speed and distance to vehicles in front, and using steering input to keep you in the center of your lane. Working at speeds up to 80 mph, it’s particularly helpful in highway conditions.
The 360˚ SurroundView Camera available for the V90 helps to make parking easier by giving you a bird’s-eye view of your car and its immediate surroundings. It’s especially useful when negotiating tight spaces and allows you to see the car’s position in relation to its surroundings. The surround view from the four wide-angle lens cameras appears on the center touchscreen and is available at speeds up to 8 mph.
Let your V90 do the hard work when parking, thanks to Park Assist Pilot. This smart feature uses sensors to gauge the size of parallel or perpendicular spaces as you drive by them, and lets you know if one is big enough to fit into. It can then steer the car into a parallel space just 1.2 times the length of the car - all you need to do is operate the accelerator, transmission, and brakes according to the prompts on the center screen. Your V90 will do the rest for you.
City Safety helps to protect people inside and outside the V90 by looking out for potential danger and reacting to it if necessary. Radar and camera technology identifies potential hazards such as other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals ahead, day or night. If City Safety detects an imminent collision it warns you. If you don't react in time, the brakes are applied automatically to help avoid or mitigate a collision. City Safety also includes Steering Support, which helps you to steer away from danger as effectively and safely as possible.
Run-Off Road Mitigation helps to make accidents where a vehicle leaves the road less likely to happen. It detects if the car is about to leave the road unintentionally between 40 and 86 mph and can use steering and braking to guide the car back onto the right path. If the car does leave the road, Run-Off Road Protection reduces the chances of serious injury. The structure of the front seat frame absorbs the impact of a hard landing, while prepared safety belts automatically tighten to hold front seat occupants in place.
