Volvo S90 D5 235PS variant will be added later
Volvo has launched its flagship sedan S90 in India. The pricing of the car has been kept at Rs 53.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The S90 replaces the S80 luxury sedan in the Volvo line-up and promises increased desirability for the brand. The Swedish sedan will compete with cars like BMW 5-Series, Audi A6, Jaguar XF and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
The Indian-Spec S90 will be powered by 2.0-litre D4 engine that produces 190PS of max power and 400Nm of peak torque. The engine transfers the power to the road via 8-Speed automatic transmission with three driving modes: Eco, Dynamic, and Comfort. Soon, the company will also add the 2.0-litre D5 engine that makes 235PS of max power and 480Nm of peak torque.
Look-wise, just like the XC90, Volvo’s bold straight line design is beautifully incorporated in S90 also. The first thing that catches attention are the ‘Thor’s Hammer’ DRL headlamps that are complimented very well with the front chrome grille. The design at the rear with its C-shape tail lights is very unique, and if you see this on the road it can’t be mistaken for some other car. That said, it’s a love it or hate it design.
Coming to the interiors, the Swedish Manufacturer’s flagship sedan is loaded with luxuries. Some of them include Bower and Wilkins sound system, Nappa leather upholstery, 9-inch infotainment touchscreen, climate control for the rear passenger, driving modes, electric tailgate etc. Famous for making some of the safest cars, Volvo S90 comes with features like head-up display,park assist, pilot assist, brake assist, and 6 airbags among others.
