The Latest Features on the 2017 Volvo S90
Narrowing down new features on the 2017 Volvo S90 can be a bit intimidating at first since this is an all-new model and the first ever S90. Even so, it was based on the outgoing Volvo flagship, the 2016 S80. As such, a great way to see changes on the 2017 S90 is to compare this model to the 2016 Volvo S80. The S90 is sleeker overall than the S80 and it has a new grille, along with improved LED headlights that create a distinct appearance. It also has a completely new platform and almost no carryover pieces.
The powertrains in the S90 are all new and include three options for you to select from. The T5 is a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 250 horsepower while the T6 is a 2-liter turbocharged and supercharged version with 316 horsepower. There is also a T8 Twin Engine that pairs the T6's engine with an electric drive to deliver 400 horsepower, along with plenty of efficiency.
The Pilot Assist feature within the S90 has been updated from that of
the S80, now working at up to 81 mph. There is also new animal detection as
part of the collision prevention system, helping protect you and wildlife while
on the road.
How the S90 Developed Over Time
