Motor Trend Volvo S90 First Review

The All-New Volvo S90 reviews are rolling in and they are nothing short of amazing.  Motor Trend published their first S90 drive review on June 3rd titled, “Look out Germany, Here Comes Sweden.”
Motor Trend writer, Angus Mackenzie, makes it clear that the Volvo S90 is in-fact a competitive luxury sedan.  “This new Volvo sedan is a luxury car, a genuinely credible alternative to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, and Audi A6. Oh, and Jaguar XF and Lexus GS, too.”
Exterior--Motor Trend Review:
“That confidence and elegance is reinforced by taut exterior surfaces and a handful of crisply defined character lines. The C-pillar rakes dramatically down to the trunk, stretching the greenhouse and visually reducing the height of the roof, giving this three-box sedan an almost coupe-like profile. The concave vertical elements of the bold grille are a subtle homage to the 1972 Volvo P1800’s front end, and dramatically geometric taillights emphasize the S90’s width.”

Interior--Motor Trend Review:
“The interior design is an evolution of themes seen in the XC90, with calm, structured forms and authentic materials… There’s a noticeable lack of switchgear, as most functions, including navigation, audio, climate control, and vehicle settings, are controlled by the 9-inch, portrait-format touchscreen at the center of the dash.”

The Drive--Motor Trend Review:
“You hardly notice the engine’s there at all. Wind noise is also commendably low—even with big wheels and tires, the S90’s drag coefficient is less than 0.30. But what impresses most is the lack of tire noise and impact harshness from the suspension along with the deft control of secondary body motions.”

Motor Trend’s glowing endorsement for the S90 could not have come at a more perfect time.  The all-new S90 demos arrive next month at Lehman Volvo Cars.  To learn more, visit or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
