Posted on by
When Swedish company decided to design 2017 Volvo S90, they decided to build on S80 and XC90 models. Using the best features from those 2 previous cars, they added extra safety features and more luxury to this model. As part of their big project Volvo’s Vision 2020, (it is based on lowering the collisions and injuries on the road), this model will be the first one to come with a Pilot Assistance as a standard feature.
When it comes to this 4 door sedan, the exterior is very elegant and luxurious. The front grille is following the concept of XC90 when it comes to size and a typical logo. It comes with a sports bumper as well. Headlights come with a standard LED feature and they do match the looks of the headlamps, giving this model a little bit of a sportsy feel. Taillights are shaped as a letter C which adds to the impression of a fast car. It’s interesting that plate space is now moved under the trunk opening. Overall look is a little longer and wider than the previous model.
Interior becomes more spacious since the dashboard is longer and it is more luxurious due to combination of leader and wood pieces. It comes with a standard touch screen and ability to sync in with either Iphone or Android. Biggest focus for Volvo S90 is safety. Extra features will include: Lane Keeping Assistance, Road Sign Information, Run-off Road Mitigation and protection, Driver Alert control, blind spot sensors, distance alert and the City Safety package. This feature is especially useful detecting large animals and pedestrians from a longer distance. Special and main feature is Pilot Assist System that will control speeding, braking and overall traffic control and following the safety features. Interestingly this will be able to function without having a vehicle in front of the car.
Transmission for this model will come with 2 options: 6 speed manual and 8 speed automatic. Horsepower is estimated at 254 at 6,000 rpm. Top speed is estimated at 155 mph and acceleration time for 60 mph can be reached in 6 seconds.
