The 2016 Volvo S90 Sedan has made its debut online and will be heading to dealerships next year. It serves as a replacement for the S80 and as you can see it looks entirely different and comes with those fancy LED daytime running lights known as the Thor’s Hammer. At the back, there are C-shaped LED taillights, while the side profile with the sloping roofline gives the mid-size sedan a more dynamic appearance. It’s bigger than the S80 and this has had a positive impact on the interior cabin room thanks to the stretched wheelbase. From a mechanical point of view, the S90 is a brand new car and doesn’t have anything in common with its predecessor.
The platform and engines have been carried over from the second generation XC90, so customers will have to take their pick from a T6 supercharged unit, a T5 turbocharged motor and the range-topping T8 Twin Engine featuring a plug-in hybrid arrangement.
It’s the same story with the interior as it has been largely carried over from the XC90, but with some changes to the shape of the air vents along with fresh upholstery and trim options. It has a ton of safety and assistance systems like the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving function and there’s even a system that can detect moose and automatically apply the brakes to avoid an impact.
A public reveal for the 2016 Volvo S90 Sedan will take place next month at NAIAS in Detroit.
