THE NEW VOLVO S90 At Volvo Cars of Exeter near Portsmouth

Swedish Sophistication and Top-Shelf Luxury - The 2018 Volvo S90

The Volvo you know and love has evolved, and so has its most genuine and luxurious offering-the 2018 S90. Now in its second model year on sale, the Swedish automaker's flagship sedan continues to turn heads thanks to Volvo's new design language, sanctuary-like interior treatments, and an intermingling of cutting-edge technology and traditional craftsmanship. But surprisingly, its evolution is also a literal one. The 2018 model's wheelbase has been stretched by 4.5 inches, filling out its already eye-catching looks, and increasing interior space.

The exterior of the 2018 S90 was envisioned by Thomas Ingenlath, who developed the car's concave grille design, as well as the T-shaped Thor's Hammer LED daytime running lights found across our modern Volvo offerings. Long and lean in silhouette, long-time fans of the brand might find some homages to the P1800 lurking amongst the styling cues, but even newcomers will appreciate it's handsome first impression at the curb.

"Sanctuary" is a word often associated with the S90's cabin, and it's quite apt. Aside from the digital gauges and Sensus Connect display, the rest of the cockpit is a study in traditional craft and high quality materials. Drawing from Scandinavian design sensibility, which favors simple, uncluttered shapes, drivers will find a feeling of serenity mixed in with the leathers and woods that are compulsory on every model. Best-in-class rear seat space, a standard sunroof, and controls that are easy to reach and use are also par for the course inside.

Models and Features
The 2018 S90 comes in two models-the Momentum and Inscription. Although the Momentum is the base model, it comes standard with a panoramic moon roof, blind-spot information, leather upholstery, and dark flame birch wood inlays. New this year is Pilot Assist II, a semi-autonomous driving system that provides support for acceleration, braking, and steering to keep you safe and rested over long drives. The Inscription further raises the bar with full LED headlights, four-zone climate control, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, and more.

 

Both Momentum and Inscription can also be outfitted with a number of options, including a Convenience and Luxury package. The latter includes options ranging from a 360-degree camera and parking sensors to unique, upscale materials and heated seats. Stand-alone options include a heads-up display, premium rear air suspension, and a Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound System. There are also a number of accessories to be had, which can be ordered or installed by our Volvo parts department.

Engines and Performance
The 2018 S90 offers the full sampling of Volvo's innovative new powertrain lineup, which consists of three engines designated T5, T6, and T8. Only available on the Momentum trim in front-wheel drive, the T5 uses a turbocharged inline-four engine with 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The T6 option-with a 316 horsepower supercharged/turbocharged inline-four with 295 lb-ft of torque-is available on both Momentum and Inscription, and is AWD only. Both trims also get the potent T8 Plug-in Hybrid, which uses a similar engine to the T6 with an electric motor and AWD for 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque.


All three engines offer crisp, responsive power delivery, but that's only one facet of the comfortable ride to be found on the new S90. The Volvo flagship has confident road manners, a plush ride from the standard suspension, and even more comfort from the optional setup. Selectable driving modes for Comfort, Eco, Dynamic, and Individual let you tailor throttle, steering, and suspension feel.

Stately, elegant, and packing cutting-edge safety and convenience features that are always looking out for you, the 2018 S90 is the exemplification of a brand flagship-one we think our Portsmouth, NH drivers will love. But unlike other premium full-size and executive picks, the S90 doesn't require you to pay premiums for the features you want. Volvo of Exeter takes a similar, customer-first approach.
