This car is one of the brand new cars from Volvo, which was released in 2017. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the latest 2017 Volvo S90.

2017 Volvo S90 Redesign

In the recent past, we have seen Volvo significantly bridge the gap between its sedans and those from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The automaker is still determined to bridge the gap even further. After releasing a new design language with the S90 sedan, the automaker has now added extra performance features to the sedan to make it even more attractive.

The 2017 Volvo S90 sedan arrives to replace the S80 in the Swedish automaker’s lineup. Though it’s more than that; Volvo is starting over, with the S90 a fully reconceived flagship sedan built on a new platform, with new engines under the hood, a new design concept, and virtually no carry-over pieces from the previous sedan.

The S90 is built on Volvo’s highly flexible Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which also underpins the 2016 SUVOTY-winning Volvo XC90 crossover. The front suspension features control arms and conventional springs, while at the rear is a multilink axle with a single transverse composite spring, like the Corvette. Stefan Karlsson, the S90’s vehicle dynamics engineer, says the new rear axle design ensures all the energy from wheel motions is directed into the rear shocks, reducing impact harshness. Air suspension, standard all around on the XC90, is available as an option on the rear axle only.

The S90 sedan becomes far better looking make it head-turning compared to the svelte yet somewhat dated-looking sedan it replaces. Volvo has had, in recent memory, a boxy, utilitarian side, and a rounded, bulbous era of design, and the new S90 leapfrogs past both of those themes, into something new, yet distinctly Scandinavian. The new S90 gets a clean, uncluttered look on the outside, with the swept-back silhouette of a sport sedan, an athletic stance from the front and rear, and in general, some very pleasing proportions. The design follows some of the themes and details of the Concept Coupe that made auto-show rounds in 2013 and that’s a very good thing. With the combination of the upright grille and organic hoodline, as well as the distinctive, “Thor’s hammer” headlights, it’s likely to be instantly recognized as a Volvo.

After hooking up the R-Design treatment to the XC90 SUV, the automaker has hooked up the S90 sedan with the same treatment. This treatment involves tweaking the exterior body kit to look sportier. The treatment is also extended to the cabin; however, it is not accompanied by a drive-train upgrade.

From a far, the 2017 Volvo S90 R-Design is identical to the standard S90. Actually, you can only tell the difference upon a closer look.   The exterior upgrades are similar to those done on the XC90 R-Design. At the front, the S90 R-Design features a smaller lower grille that is narrower than the main grille unlike the standard model whose lower grille stretches the entire width of the apron. The bumper has also been modified.

Volvo has also rebranded the floor mats, tread plates and pedals with R-Design logos. In addition, the models feature a 12.3-inch infotainment system. To complete the upgrade is an illumination package that makes the interior look more stylish and exudes the great attention to detail the automaker had in crafting the cabin.

The intakes below the main headlights have been modified also and they now feature LED fog lights. The main grille features horizontal slats rather than the standard model’s vertical ones. A black trim completes the front fascia redesign; it has replaced the chrome trim on standard models.
