Overview (Final Score: B+)
The 2017may not be the sportiest or offer anything larger than four cylinders, but it stands out with an impressive interior, sharp looking exterior and smooth ride if you stick with the smaller wheels.
Volvo has always marched to the beat of its own drum. Its nonconformist attitude has been both good and bad for the Swedish automaker. The past couple of years have seen Volvo rising back up, thanks to its new parent company, Chinese automaker Geely. The XC90 crossover has earned raved reviews and is considered by many to be one of the best luxury crossovers on sale. Now Volvo has introduced the second act in their comeback story with the 2017 S90 sedan.
The S90 faces a large and tough crowd when it comes to midsize luxury sedans. The all-newcould possibly be the best all around in terms of its ride and handling balance, along with a revised engine lineup and more tech. The comes close to the S90’s interior appointments and smooth ride.
If you’re looking for something sporty, both theand Lexus GS give their German rivals a run for their money. The all-new follows Volvo’s idea of doing something different by being one of the most luxurious models in the class.
Volvo might not have the same name recognition as its rivals. But if the new S90 is any indication of what’s coming down the pipe, Volvo may become a force to be reckoned with.
