Checking out the exterior here the main thing that’s new for 2020 Volvo S90, is the brand new our design trim level. Which is what we have today so in essence everything. New feature you could say that does mean like the other Volvo trims we have a specific our design grille. This has kind of the black mesh finish with the matte silver around it as well as a more aggressive lower fascia.
The other two trims 2020 Volvo S90 don’t change in design. So you still have the black bars on the base momentum and on the top in description it is silver bars turning over there to your headlights just like every Volvo. You have these really clean and classy full LED headlights with the signature forest camera in addition. That you will also find LED fog lights and those are standard on every single trim.
Going along with a more aggressive front end here on our design we have some aggressive contrast alloy wheels. 2020 Volvo S90 Start with a 19-inch alloy when you also have the optional 20-inch hours now on the other trim levels you have an 18-inch alloy. On the momentum that does have a new design for 2020 and then on the top in description you have the same arrangement of a 19 standard and an optional 20-inch alloy. Now coming up here to your mirrors as you can see on our design, we have a black cap and then every single model has all the features so you have auto dimming power folding heating.
Before we get around to the rear design, we you pay attention at the side because this is an area where this 2020 Volvo S90 really looks very long and expensive. It actually is longer than its main competition it comes in at 200 inches in length which is around five inches longer than the E-Class and A6. It actually is longer than some of its competition and then walking around to the rear design you do have that nice Volvo sedan look of course most of that is due to these LED tail lights they look really quite nice.
Volvo does congruently make all of your safety systems standard across the board. You have standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, auto high beam headlights, Lane Keeping Assist and even a pilot assist system which allows for semi-autonomous driving. In extension to that you will also get rear auto braking for 2020.
Checking out the cabin of this 2020 Volvo S90, as you can see it makes a fantastic. First impression definitely a beautiful design. Everything inside of this cabin is new. This year now as far as your interior color combinations of all the trim levels on the momentum. You have standard real leather that is going to be new this year and your choice of amber blonde charcoal and maroon colors. The top-end inscription has those same colors but that will be finished in full nappa leather.
For your windows are going to be one touch automatic with 2-person memory seating. As far as your seats you do have 10-way power adjustment with four-way lumbar. As well as power thigh extension and then these seats themselves these are absolutely beautiful seats. Honestly of all those seats are probably our favorite in the entire auto industry because they just look so beautiful and they are so extremely comfortable.
Being a 2020 Volvo S90, we don’t have push-button start, we actually have a twist button start. Just like every Volvo in the entire lineup this 12-point 3 inch fully digital gauge cluster has become standard on every single model for 2020 Volvo S90 including the base model. It does have these same functions as in the other model. so you can change certain things like the design to allow for instance a map or you can also change like the color scheme and various other things.
Talk about interior storage, where the 2020 Volvo S90 surprisingly has just about the same amount of space as the XC90. Inside of your center console, and this is pretty deep. You do have a nice felt lining as well as a rubber pad in the bottom and two of your USB ports. When we put it to the test you can get all of the full stack of coupons in there.
As long as we fold them in half now up in front of that we have this big piece of aluminum which we slide back to reveal our two cupholders and another small storage area. Heading back to shifter, most of the models are gonna come with this traditional shifter. But if you choose the TA it will have the crystal electronic shifter. Pull back for drive and bump to the left.
If you want to shift manually here or with those paddle shifters and when we head into opposite you will find a regular backup camera with active trajectory as well as parking sensors. You will have 360-degree camera system if you pick advanced package. If we have that we would have the 360 cameras as well as automatic perpendicular and parallel parking. Basically, in the middle option you also will have 600-watt 14 speaker Harman Kardon sound system standard.
The part of 2020 Volvo S90 sensor system does remain pretty much the same this year. You have these little tabs which you tap on and they expand out so this is standard navigation system. You do have both Android auto and apple CarPlay both onboard. Hitting back into really nice rear seat. Honestly it will feel a lot like a Mercedes s-class and a lot of that has to do with that extra space that you get from being 5 inches longer than most of the competition. As far as your technical legroom figures they’re gonna come in at 40 inches of rear legroom and 38 inches of rear headroom.
It nice that our first time behind the wheel of this 2020 Volvo S90. We have to say first impression we really liked it very powerful engine. You know of course this is just like all the other polos and lineup it has that unique power train arrangement. That is actually a change for 2020 the base T5 model.
That’s been discontinued so you’re gonna go straight to the T6. And for 2020 we think that’s a good thing. The base setup is a two-liter four-cylinder engine with both a turbo and a supercharged component. All that together is gonna make 310 horsepower 295 pound-feet of torque. It really feels remarkably normal though when you’re behind the wheel of it.
Even though there’s nothing else that we aware of in the industry that has both the turbocharged or a supercharger on the same engine. You know and it’s a very small engine but you know it even does a good job and stuff like XC90. So, you know it’s the same engine that’s in the XC90 and this is a smaller sedan.
It unquestionably feels a lot more convincing than that model. We think you’re gonna really do not mind the engine and of course you can also get the T8 model that plug-in hybrid. As far as the transmission, this point it is an 8-speed automatic transmission. That the T5 is gone you have standard all-wheel drive, for base configuration is now a T6 all-wheel drive.
How much 2020 Volvo S90 Will Cost?
The best thing that we talked about is just the value. The value that we know we haven’t talked about the pricing just yet. But 2020 Volvo S90 is under $60,000 and it has a rear seat that’s like the Mercedes S Class.
