About the Volvo S90

The Volvo S90 delivers unrivaled refinement and cutting-edge technology blended with contemporary Scandinavian design. Make a lasting first impression with the elegant exterior of the S90 featuring an extended wheelbase for a smoother ride and a low roofline for a sleek profile. Volvo S90 models also have one of the most spacious interiors in their class. With enough standard safety features to rival the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class – the S90 prioritizes your safety like never before. In addition to the standard turbo- and supercharged B6 powertrain, you can also choose the Recharge powertrain, a plug-in hybrid that gives you blistering performance, impressive efficiency, and low emissions.

What the Critics Say

"The S90's cabin is by far its most impressive feature. A mixture of high-end materials-open-pore wood, genuine leather, brushed metal, and finely grained plastics-come together in a cohesive and undeniably modern space." — Car and Driver

"We understand the temptation to go for an established midsize luxury sedan like the E-Class or BMW 5 Series, but automakers like Volvo provide a compelling alternative. The S90 offers standout style inside and out, not to mention a capacious cabin and a reason to look past the usual players." — MotorTrend

What's New for 2023

You might see some major updates on many Volvo models this year, but as the flagship model, the S90 got these last year. The big change for this year is new trim levels, with Volvo dropping the base trim and renaming the remaining two "Plus" and "Ultimate". The S90 Recharge plug-in hybrid received additional power for 2023 as well, increasing to 455 horsepower and 523lb-ft of torque.

Volvo S90 Performance

High-Performance Powertrains

Volvo S90 drivers will have their choice of two distinctive powertrain options. The B6 powertrain is a turbocharged and supercharged Mild Hybrid 4-cylinder gasoline-powered engine delivering 295 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque for exceptional performance in both cities and on highways. The B6 AWD proves to be an ideal powertrain for its blend of turbocharged and supercharged technology, a smooth 8-speed Geartronic™ automatic gearbox, and versatile all-wheel drive. The Mild Hybrid addition to the B6 engine delivers a nearly 20% improvement in fuel economy versus the outgoing T6 non-mild-hybrid powertrain.

For exhilarating driving thrills combined with unparalleled efficiency, the top-tier Recharge Plug-In Hybrid with eAWD offers the ultimate Volvo S90 experience. Blending a high-performance gasoline engine to drive the front wheels, and an electric motor driving the rear wheels, this 455-horsepower powertrain delivers surprising acceleration, while also allowing for zero-emission commuting of up to 38 miles.

Volvo S90 Interior

Luxurious Interior

Inside the Volvo S90, drivers and passengers alike will find a comfortable environment tailored with premium materials and expert craftsmanship. Natural materials such as Gray Ash Wood set the mood inside this luxury S90. Standard seating and steering wheel leather upholstery complement its naturalistic inlays. Advanced tech features blend seamlessly with its contemporary interior design.

Automatic climate control paired with CleanZone technology helps ensure a healthy interior environment and fresh cabin air by filtering particulates, odors, dust, and pollen while continuously monitoring air quality. Add some fresh air as well with a standard power moonroof to bring in natural light and air. For an even higher level of comfort, you can make the S90's ventilated front seats even more comfortable with massage functions for the ultimate experience in relaxation.
