The S90 will also feature the updated Sensus Connect Touchscreen interface debuting in the XC60, as well as Oncoming Lane Mitigation, BLIS with steering assist and updated City Safety. 



As we offer both European and US models, the specific features of the particular models are too numerous to list. Instead, we will highlight some of Volvo’s principles in the design and concepts of this fantastic new Volvo. Contact us for complete information on any model you wish.

The all-new Volvo S90 is the most luxurious sedan Volvo has ever built, with an interior that exudes quality and craftsmanship. Three principles guided the interior design:

  • Proportion
  • The intelligent use of technology
  • The best Scandinavian expression of luxury

In terms of proportion, the visual lines of the interior are stretched horizontally, which gives an impression of width and space, the hallmarks of an elegant and luxurious experience.

The design also reflects our “Designed Around You” concept where we start with the human in sharp focus and develop everything from there.

  • Steering wheel is designed for the best possible ergonomic experience – the rim features just the right thickness for comfort and feel. The positive grip is particularly useful during dynamic driving.
  • 9-inch Sensus Touchscreen used to replace the large number of switches that tend to plague the interiors of luxury cars reflects our own intelligent use of technology.
  • We have angled the touch screen and dashboard slightly more towards the driver, to give a more driver focused look and feel.
  • The dashboard air vents have uniquely designed control knobs, placed on elegant vertical design elements in the same metal finish.

All in all, the interior design of the S90 creates a harmonious and relaxing environment.

The focus of the all-new Volvo S90’s powertrains is lightweight design, performance, efficiency and a great driving experience.

At the heart of this strategy is our range of aluminum four-cylinder engines that actually offer performance equivalent to six and even eight-cylinder powerplants.

You reap the benefits with an exhilarating driving experience delivered with lower fuel consumption and emissions.

Traction & Stability

Electronic Stability Control (ESC):

ESC enhances driving stability in slippery conditions by comparing the rotation of the drive wheels and, if needed, varying the power supply. The system uses information from the anti-lock brake (ABS) sensors, which constantly monitors the rotation of each wheel. If the sensors detect that one of the driving wheels has a higher rotational speed than the other, it is interpreted as wheel spin and the brakes are applied to the spinning wheel. In the S90, the traction control system is adapted to allow for an optimal amount of wheel spin to get the quickest possible acceleration from a standstill.

Corner Traction Control (CTC) through Torque Vectoring:

Traction Control with Torque Vectoring is a technology that measures the rotational speed of the driving wheels and makes Corner Traction Control act like a differential brake at higher speeds and under high cornering loads. During fast cornering, it is common that the inner wheel starts to spin. Torque vectoring solves this by using the traction control to brake the spinning wheel. Torque Vectoring also reduces understeer when cornering at higher speeds.

All-Wheel-Drive with Instant Traction:

The advanced AWD system with Instant Traction™ has an electronic management system that constantly monitors the speed of the wheels, the throttle, engine torque, engine speed and the brakes. As conditions change, so will the wheels with the best grip.

Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS):

The anti-locking disc brakes are designed for optimal performance even during repetitive and intensive use. Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA) detects an attempted emergency braking.

Luxury Driving Experience

Some features are optional equipment.

Pilot Assist – Standard Feature

The advanced Semi-Autonomous Drive System gives gentle steering inputs to keep the car properly aligned within lane markings up to highway speeds of 80 mph and no longer needs to follow another car. The system controls acceleration, braking and steering.Pilot Assist is another step towards full autonomous drive – a key innovation area for Volvo Cars.

Sensus Connect**

Standard feature on Momentum and Inscription trim levels. With built-in USB and auxiliary connectors – plus wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and broadband technology – you can disconnect from home and reconnect with the road. Optional feature with Kinetic trim.

Premium Air Suspension – Option

The system automatically keeps the rear at the correct level regardless of load, and also adapts to the road and driving conditions. It’s combined with our electronically controlled damper system Four-C and offers outstanding driving pleasure and comfort. The air-suspension system consists of an air-chamber for each wheel – which replaces the traditional spring, in this case the transverse leaf spring – pipes, a compressor and an air tank. A computer constantly controls how much air each air-chamber should be filled with by the compressor.

Run-off Road Mitigation – Standard Feature

This is a new World First standard-fitted preventive safety system in the all-new Volvo S90. It supplements the standard-fitted Lane Keeping Aid to help prevent unintentional road departure at vehicle speeds between 40-86 mph. Run-off Road Mitigation with steer assist technology operates at higher speeds, working out if you stray over lane markings to the road edge. It only intervenes if a road departure is calculated to be imminent. When a potential run off road situation arises torque is applied to the steering to support the driver along with braking action if needed. The system can always be overridden by the active intervention of the driver.  The calculation is based on information from the standard-fitted radar/camera unit in the windscreen and relies on visible road markings and road edges. The system is active day and night.

Run-off Road Protection – Standard Feature

In 2014 Volvo launched Run-off Road Protection in the XC90. It is a world first solution focusing on accidental road departure. Using input from the car’s advanced sensor system, the technology is able to detect a run off road scenario. When an unavoidable run off road situation arises the front safety belts are electrically tightened as much as possible to keep the occupants in position. To prevent spine injuries Volvo has designed an energy-absorbing functionality between the seat and seat frame which deforms mechanically to cushion the vertical forces that can arise when the car encounters a hard landing in the terrain. Based on real-life data, Volvo Cars has developed three complete vehicle crash test track methods, called Ditch, Airborne and Rough terrain, for evaluating the consequences of various Run-off Road protection scenarios.

City Safety technology – Standard Feature

With Volvo’s City Safety technology, your car can work out whether there’s a collision risk if you’re approaching slower moving or stationary vehicles from behind.

Autobrake in intersection

If a driver is about to turn in front of approaching traffic in an intersection, vehicle intersection braking will apply the brakes automatically, helping to avoid or reduce the severity of a collision. Autobrake in intersection works day and night.

Pedestrian and Cyclist detection

This helps drivers avoid accidents by detecting people in front of the vehicle. The car even brakes automatically if the situation should demand it. Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection works day and night.

Large Animal Detection

A world first is the ability to detect large animals like deer and moose on the road and brake if necessary. The standard-fitted radar/camera unit can detect large animals standing on the road or slowly moving across it with the side towards the car. If a large animal is detected, the Volvo S90 warns the driver. If the driver does not react the car applies the brakes to mitigate the possible effects of an impending collision. Detection includes large animals such as moose/ elk, large deer, horses and cattle at night or day.

Park Assist – Option

Park Assist is like having your own valet to park your car for you. It works out whether a space is large enough, then takes over the steering to guide you into it.

360˚ camera – Option

The 360˚ camera option makes parking and low-speed maneuvering in narrow places simple, providing a bird’s eye view of everything surrounding the car on the center display.

Active high beam – Option

You’ll no longer need to think about when to switch between low and high beam, as active high beam automatically reacts to oncoming cars.

Sensus Navigation

A standard feature on USA Models and an optional feature for European models, Sensus navigation connects you seamlessly with your digital world, Sensus Navigation is easy to use and doesn’t distract you from the road ahead. Finding your way is now simpler than ever.

Head-up display – Option

Volvo’s head-up technology means you can always see important information at eye level, at all times, without having to take your focus away from the road.

Apple CarPlay

Seamlessly connected to your car’s center display, Apple CarPlay allows you to enjoy everything you love about your iPhone, inside your Volvo S90. A standard feature on USA S90 Inscription Models and an optional feature for USA Momentum and all European models.

Premium Sound – Option

1.400 watt, 19 “Bowers & Wilkins” speakers, Bluetooth, USB connectivity and auxiliary input coupled with Volvo Sensus Connect. This premium audio system is at the cutting-edge of technology with features such as an air-ventilated subwoofer integrated into the structure of the car, and a tweeter on the dashboard.
