Luxury sedan gets a super luxurious interior - Features, Review Volvo is moving the production of the S90 from Sweden to China with the promise of making the luxury sedan the most “premium car ever made” in the world’s biggest automotive market. It’s a lot to live up to, but Volvo is confident that it’ll work, or at least confident enough to announce a top-of-the-line trim that pretty much includes anything and everything that Volvo has to offer. The model is called the S90 Excellence, and if the name sounds familiar, that’s because the car’s breathtaking interior was already previewed in concept form back in April at the Beijing Motor Show. It’s not a concept anymore because the S90 Excellence is going to hit the market in 2017. The Chinese market is expected to get first dibs, but since the model is going to be exported all over the world, there’s a possibility that the U.S. and European markets will get theirs too at some point in the future. In the meantime, the S90 Excellence, together with the standard S90, will make its debut at the 2016 Guangzhou Motor Show later this month. So what makes the S90 Excellence a major step up in luxury for Volvo? The short answer is “Lounge Console,” which is basically the same interior we saw in Beijing as a concept, only it’s actually set to be used in production form. Care for a rear-seat touch screen control interface, handmade crystal glasses, and a built-in refrigeration compartment? Yep. That’s what you get – and many more – with the Volvo S90 Excellence. Continue after the jump to read more about the Volvo S90 Excellence. What makes the Volvo S90 Excellence special The Volvo S90 Excellence will be based on the long-wheelbase S90 L, a model that’s only being sold in China. So in case you’re wondering why the S90 Excellence looks particularly longer than the standard S90, that’s because the S90 Excellence is effectively a limousine, and an über luxurious one at that. The exterior doesn’t change too much other than its overall dimensions, but the interior is where owners will find a world of difference. The S90 Excellence is effectively a limousine, and an über luxurious one at that. Essentially, the S90 Excellence’s Lounge Console cabin is a mobile hotel that can morph into a luxury work station or an entertainment center with a few pushes of some buttons. The first thing you’ll notice about it is that it doesn’t have a front passenger seat. In its place is a small compartment that contains a few items, most notably a large touch screen that can be used for a variety of functions. The compartment can apparently store a pair of shoes too so that’s another neat addition. Most of the offerings can be found in the rear section of the car where massaging rear seats can be reclined for supreme relaxation. There’s also a rear center console that has its own refrigeration compartment inside the armrest. Notice those champagne glasses too? Those are handmade crystal glasses from noted Swedish glassmaker Orrefors. The console also contains a folding table that be accessed and positioned in front of the rear seat, providing a usable work space for the occupant. The S90 Excellence’s Lounge Console cabin is a mobile hotel that can morph into a luxury work station or an entertainment center with a few pushes of some buttons. Engine choices for the S90 Excellence are limited to just the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid setup, which puts out an output of 410 horsepower. That should be enough to justify the ridiculous opulence of a car with matching performance characteristics.

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.

The 2018 Volvo S90 luxury sedan is a major part of the Swedish marque's rebirth. After years of producing good vehicles, the company is now making great vehicles. This is accomplished by addressing every major and minor area, establishing a fresh design approach, developing new engines and setting even higher standards for interior quality, while staying true to traditional Volvo values like safety and comfort. The S90 displays all those attributes, making it well worth including on the short list of anyone looking to buy a midsize premium sedan. More rear space. After just one year on the market, the S90 grows by 4.5 inches, all of which is just past the center pillar resulting in a generous 40.4 inches of rear legroom. A panoramic sunroof with a powered sunshade is also standard, joining an expanded list that also includes blind spot monitoring. Some options bundles have also been rearranged. The Sensus infotainment system's interface has been updated for a more user-friendly experience, while active lane-keeping assist becomes available. All-wheel drive is now an option with the entry level T5 drivetrain. And the range acquires the T8 plug-in hybrid setup, as found in the XC90 SUV that shares a platform with the S90 sedan. Impressive safety features (a Volvo hallmark); tasteful yet luxurious interior design; impressive fuel economy for a large sedan; great infotainment system. T5 versions have a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine developing 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates fuel consumption at 24 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway and 27 mpg combined (front-wheel drive) or 23 mpg city/32 mpg hwy/26 mpg combined (with the optional all-wheel drive). T6 models have a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that's both turbocharged and supercharged to develop 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is standard in the T6, and fuel economy is 22 mpg city/31 mpg hwy/25 mpg combined. The T8 plug-in hybrid also has a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with turbocharging and supercharging, which is augmented by an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. System output is a muscular 400 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, driving all four wheels as standard. In EV mode, maximum range is 21 miles. The EPA estimates a combined miles-per-gallon equivalent (MPGe) of 71 when using both power sources. As a regular hybrid, it's rated at 29 mpg combined. The quickest battery charging time at 220 volts is 2.5 hours. All versions of the S90 use an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2018 Volvo S90 is available in Momentum trim with a choice of all three drivetrains. Inscription trim offers just the T6 and T8 plug-in hybrid setups. The T5 Momentum ($49,095), T6 Momentum ($55,095) and T8 Momentum ($64,645, before any federal or state tax credits) versions have a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED exterior lighting, adjustable drive mode settings, leather upholstery, birch wood inlays, 10-way power-adjustable front seats with driver's-side memory settings, power-folding rear headrests, self-dimming rearview and side mirrors, Volvo Sensus infotainment system with a 9-in touchscreen and navigation, satellite radio, 8-in driver information display, keyless entry/ignition, rear parking sensors and camera, heated front seats (optional on T5/standard on T6 and T8) 330-watt 10-speaker audio system and a USB port.

Heated front seats and a heated steering wheel are also available ($750). T6 Inscription ($59,595) and T8 Inscription ($69,145, before any federal or state tax credits) include the contents of that Momentum Plus package, then add heated/ventilated front seats, powered rear window sunshade, manual sun shades for the rear passenger-side windows, Nappa soft leather upholstery and 19-in alloy wheels. Inscription models are eligible for a Luxury package ($3,450) that consists of a Nubuck headliner, heated/ventilated outboard rear seats, massaging front seats and an extra-wide deluxe rear center armrest. A Convenience Package ($2,550) brings Park Assist Pilot, front parking sensors, a HomeLink automatic garage door opener, a compass set into the rearview mirror, a 360-degree camera system, heated washer nozzles, a 12-volt power outlet in the trunk and a power-operated trunk lid.

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.
