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.
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.
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.
Everyone hears the best possible sound, courtesy of its 14 individually monitored and adjusted speakers, with Harman Kardon Premium Sound. With Automatic Level Adjustment, differences in volume and intensity on the recording are evened out, so you don’t have to constantly change the settings. And with the bass management system, the bass notes in your music are adapted to the car’s acoustics, making them richer and clearer.
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.
Please note: the driver is responsible for how the car is controlled at all times.
