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.

We like the coupelike roofline, the broad shoulder look that runs the length of the car, and the BMW-esque kickup of the styling line at the rear roof pillars. Volvo's latest LED integrated running light design (the company's self-described "Thor's hammer") and a standard-issue Volvo corporate grille help tie the S90's visuals to the brand's other current models. Inside, however, is where Volvo has most effectively upped its game. The look is relaxed and modern, with most of the car's controls routed through the central touchscreen display. The S90's open-grain wood trim looks and feels just like real wood, which is a refreshing change from the overly lacquered or shiny wood trim look. We also like the knurled drive mode and ignition knobs on the center console and, on the higher Inscription trim level, the crystal-trimmed gear-shift knob, and classy metallic speaker grilles for the optional Bowers & Wilkins sound system. It's a great-looking and high-quality cabin. For 2018, there's also more room for rear passengers. All 2018 S90s are now a long-wheelbase version, which was previously unavailable, and Volvo utilizes the setup to boost rear legroom by 4.5 inches, for a total of 40.4 inches. That's a few inches more than what you'll find in similarly priced sedans such as the Genesis G90 or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Of course, numbers aren't everything, but we did verify in our brief time sitting in the back of the S90 that the seating is suitably palatial. Go ahead, kick back and listen to ABBA's Greatest Hits or build a castle in Minecraft while you wolf down some meatballs you sneaked out from your local Ikea store. We guarantee you'll enjoy the experience.

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.
