After Volvo was taken over by Geely Holding of China, the first new model to come out under new management was the all-new top-of-the-line S90 sedan in 2017. Initially, built in Sweden, production shifted to China. Not only that, in only its second year, it has grown by several inches.
The S90 is a global car and the extra length in the 2018 S90 all goes to rear seat legroom; with the addition of 4.5 inches. In fact, the S90 outclasses the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series in rear legroom. Other carmakers have available extended-wheelbase models, but the 2018 S90 comes standard with that extra length.
For 2018, also added to the line-up in some markets is the 400hp plug-in hybrid model called the T8, which gets a completely redesigned back seat. Also, all-wheel drive is now available on the T5 model.
The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four cylinder which in the front-wheel-drive S90 T5 offers 250hp. The S90 T6 with all-wheel drive uses a supercharged and turbocharged combination version of that engine, offering 316hp. The S90 T8 plug-in hybrid uses a version of that engine combined with an electric powerplant, to make its total 400hp.
All S90s gets Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission an optional air suspension.
The S90 offers world-leading active safety features. Standard large-animal detection can automatically reduce speed or brake to a halt. Front seats are designed to help curtail high vertical forces that might result in back injury if the S90 leaves the road.
