Motor1 Managing Editor Brandon Turkus takes Volvo’s full size luxury sedan, the S90, for a spin to see if we like it as well as it’s V90 and XC90 platform mates. For more Volvo S90: https://www.motor1.com/volvo/S90 As-tested price: $69,140 Restrained and conservative, the Volvo S90 is a splendid luxury sedan. And since it’s loaded down with modern technology, it serves as a pleasant change of pace from today’s German luxury cars. But just because it looks pleasant and wears a traditional Volvo color and has a killer active safety system, doesn’t mean there isn’t some Swedish weirdness. Most of that weirdness is under the hood, where there’s a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. Not all that unusual, except that our test car has both a turbocharger and a supercharger. The latter kicks in at low rpms, providing power while the former is spooling. As the engine speed climbs and the turbocharger’s boost builds, its power arrives. The result is 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and EPA fuel economy estimates of 22 miles per gallon city, 31 highway, and 25 combined. Volvo’s reputation for safety is on full display with its Pilot Assist active safety system. Blending today’s cutting edge active safety systems – full-speed adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist, among others – into a single unified suite means getting started is as easy as pressing two buttons. Once underway, Pilot Assist takes a tremendous amount of stress off the driver. Highway cruising is effortless and safe, meaning that driving long distances is less tiring.

If you want your car to serve you longer and save money on expensive service and maintenance, pay attention to these simple yet really important rules. Experts recommend a few things to keep in mind and a few common mistakes to avoid to make your car last longer. If you stick around till the end of the video, we’ll tell you how you can fix a cracked windshield with garlic. Having the correct tire pressure is a sort of “Goldilocks” situation. If it gets too low OR too high, you can have serious problems. Don't forget about seasonal tire changes and remember to swap your front and rear tires at least once a year. Sharp acceleration and abrupt braking might feel like fun, but they’re actually extremely harmful to vehicles. If you decide to park on an incline and put your car in Park, it puts too much pressure on the transmission. In rare cases, it can even become dislodged or break down. So the best option is to use the emergency brake. With the help of the symbols on the car's dashboard, your car can tell you when something's wrong, like when the engine's overheated, something's wrong with the electrical system, or the brake fluid level is too low. Go to an auto repair shop as soon as possible to save yourself from expensive repairs or even an accident. Weighing your vehicle down excessively does nothing good for the car's suspension, steering, transmission, tires, and engine. Plus, overloading increases fuel consumption and makes the car more difficult to handle. Remember that cars, just like people, need regular check-ups and “health” tests. Music: Retro - Wayne Jones https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS Keep your tire pressure in-check. 0:40 Take it easy on the gas and brake pedals. 2:03 Park correctly. 2:42 Don't ignore the dashboard. 3:54 Don't forget about vehicle inspections and repairs. 5:13 Avoid overloading. 6:03 Don't overload the clutch. 6:50 Bonus: fix a cracked windshield with garlic! 7:18 SUMMARY -Check your tire pressure at least twice a month (but once a week is even better). While adding air to your tires, make sure they aren't warm to the touch and don't overfill them. -If you’re a fan of sharp acceleration and abrupt braking, remember both of them are actually extremely harmful to vehicles. Plus, you’re just burning more gas than you need to. -Avoid throwing the car into Park before coming to a full and complete stop. The same goes for putting the car into Drive or Reverse before stopping fully: don’t do it. -If you notice the engine light flashing while you're driving, slow down right away because this might be a sign of a serious problem. The brake light lets you know that somewhere in the braking system something has gone wrong. -Check your car’s manual to find out how often you should change your oil or air filter and remember that a lot of it depends on your driving habits. Get yearly inspections and keep in mind that routine maintenance will depend on the season and the mileage. -Get acquainted with the maximum load capacity for your car and stick to it. Try to get rid of all of the useless stuff in your car. -Don't hold the clutch in at long traffic lights. During short stops, shift to Neutral and press the clutch right before you start moving. -Take a clove of garlic, cut it lengthwise down the middle, rub the cut side over the crack, and wipe away the excess juice with a paper towel or napkin to keep the crack from getting worse until you can get it repaired.

What's the difference between all-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive? 4WD is not on all the time, under normal conditions, only the rear wheels drive the vehicle forward, while the front wheels spin freely. To activate a modern four-wheel drive system, the driver has to push a button or pull a lever to engage it. But four-wheel drive isn't meant to be on all the time so you have to know when to turn it on and when to turn it off. AWD is on all the time, and mostly used in cars, and the computer manages the system. Just going down the highway, the system will send most of the power to the rear wheels, for maximum fuel efficiency, if the road condition changes, such as rain or snow, the system adapts and evenly distributes the power evenly to all 4 wheels, so you have maximum drive grip, with little to no chance of wheel spin. 2WD Cars are less complex than those with AWD or 4WD, and their simpler drivetrains mean improved fuel economy in the long run. In general, cars equipped with 2-wheel drive get better gas mileage than models that use all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive.

It’s Sweden’s latest take on the German executive saloon. After the ageing, slightly anonymous S80 comes the super slick S90. It takes the traditional three-box Volvo shape and brings it bang up to date with XC90 styling cues. It’s bold, but in a class dominated by sense and rationality, we like that a lot.
Consider this a calm and serene E-Class alternative rather than an athletic, up-on-its-toes 5-Series rival. The aura of feel-good begins as soon as you climb in, with a lovely tactile ‘on/off’ switch as opposed to a starter button. Nice.
Sharing its mechanicals with the XC90, it’s a neat and tidy thing to drive. The ride might be firmer than you expect, but otherwise this is a quiet, cossetting place to spend time. All of its controls are stress-free and there’s abundant grip and composure. Throw this it any commute and we guarantee you’ll notice your usual stresses evaporate away.
Engine wise, you’ve a choice of two four-cylinder turbodiesels, with 187bhp and 232bhp tunes. The latter is better not only for moving the S90’s large frame around, but because it comes with clever turbo lag-beating technology and standard all-wheel drive. The lower tune makes do with front-drive. In time, the T8 petrol-electric hybrid from the XC90 – all 407bhp of it – will join the range. Next motorway cop car of choice, anyone?
Here’s where it’s got the Germans licked, by deliberately going in a completely different direction to them. The controls manage an excellent trick of being quirky, yet ergonomically satisfying.
The large portrait touchscreen takes some getting used to, but is superb once you’ve got your head around it. You can even hook it up to an optional 1,400 watt, 19-speaker stereo.
The seats are sublime, too, and only add to the soothing feeling of being inside the S90. Plenty of room, too, as its stocky exterior dimensions might have you expecting.
For the price of nicely specced four-cylinder S90, you can have a six-cylinder BMW 5-Series. Prices start at £32,555, but the one you want is a whisker under £40k. That it doesn’t feel bad value tells you of the quality on offer.
Naturally, its lower cylinder count means the fuel economy figure is strong: 58.9mpg for the more powerful engine, with the entry-level car topping 60mpg while sliding into the cheaper tax brackets with 116g/km. For a 1.6-ton, 5m saloon, that’s damn good.
Want a more assertive exterior? There’s an R Design option box awaiting you.
