The all-new for 2017 S90 is Volvo’s top-tier luxury sedan, and there is no denying that it’s a handsome car. It retains Volvo’s masculine, yet refined, styling that is sure to appeal to luxury car buyers. While the S90 is a completely new model, it’s intended to replace the outgoing Volvo S80. As the largest sedan in the lineup, it’s placed above the S60 — both in price and accoutrements.

It’s obvious that Volvo is intending the new S90 to be a straightforward executive sedan to compete with the BMW 5-series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Audi A6. In that role, it looks to fill the space well — it’s well-appointed, powerful (despite only having 4-cylinder drivetrains), and luxurious. Like the V90 Cross Country and XC90, it’s built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, designed to be used across all of Volvo’s large models. Predictably, it uses most of the same drivetrains and equipment as those models, and there is little to differentiate it — other than the obvious point of it being a sedan.

New S90 Trim Levels

Unlike many of Volvo’s other models (particularly the XC90), the new S90 is currently available in only two trim levels: Momentum and Inscription. While for many the simplicity of only having two options to choose from is a good thing (just go with the Momentum if you’re on a budget, or the Inscription if you want to be fancy), others might prefer more choices. The XC90, for example, has a number of trim levels, including the very high-end Excellence. We might, however, get more choices in the future. For now, here’s what’s available:

the very high-end Excellence


While this is the base trim level for the S90, it would be foolish to consider it basic. Standard features are still what most would expect in a luxury sedan, including: active and passive safety features, leather power seats (with driver memory), power moonroof, dual-zone climate control, large driver and center LCD displays, Sensus, and Rear Park Assist.

Notably, however, there is currently no performance S90 model, meaning even a well-optioned S90 is priced below the S60 and V60 Polestar models.
