Volvo S90Thu, 09/01/2016 - 16:08
Innovation and renovation. Those words best describe Volvo’s new S90 vehicle. First unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2016, the S90 is an ambassador for Volvo’s global rebirth. The executive sedan offers the latest features in terms of technology, power, connectivity, design and elegance.
A replacement for Volvo’s S80 model, the S90 introduces Pilot Assist technology, a semi-autonomous driving cont rol system as standard in every version. Pilot Assist allows drivers to maintain constant speed and distance from other cars, while also enabling the car to come to a complete standstill and keeping the vehicle from crossing lanes.
The car is also equipped with City Safety and Large Animal Detection technology that detects pedestrians, bicycles or large animals and prepares the car to react and brake. The Momentum AWD version features a semi-autonomous parking system to better facilitate the driving experience.
Connectivity is the S90’s backbone, powered by the Sensus Connect system that accompanies drivers every step of the way. The information, connectivity, control and entertainment system is featured on the 9-inch vertical tactile screen that is compatible with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The S90’s screen is elegantly merged with the car’s dash, almost eliminating the need for buttons.
Volvo’s S90 excels both in design and performance. The 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter Drive-E engine pledges fuel efficiency and low emissions. The automatic transmission with eight speeds ensures full use of the S90’s 320hp but without hindering its mission to be environmentally friendly. This includes CleanZone technology that constantly monitors pollutant levels and filters dust, pollen or particles inside the car.
The S90’s design is pure Scandinavian inspiration. The car’s LED headlights emulate the shape of Thor’s hammer. The inside is ergonomically designed to offer exceptional comfort on every ride, be it a 10-minute trip or multi-hour journey. The vehicle offers a fourzone, electric climate control, as well as heated back seats. The front seats offer electric leg-rest extensions and have a ventilation system that ensures maximum comfort while driving.
