It’s the first car and second vehicle, with a premium luxury swag-appeal, to be introduced by a Chinese-owned company. And it’s the first car from the brand that combines the best elements of safety and design, both inside and out.
When Available: On sale now.
To address any trepidation midsize luxury car buyers may have with a 4-cylinder, one must note that Volvo is able to offer such due to its lightweight architecture. More importantly, the S90 will literally be fueled by a pair of gas saving 4-cylinders, with either a turbo or a supercharged engine, which pumps out 250- and 316-horsepower, respectively. Despite the lack of a true 6-cylinder, Volvo’s supercharged engine horsepower is within the range of many of its competitors. Ironically, Volvo’s traditional customers have become accustomed to the automaker offering a cylinder or less than its segment competitors. In fact, in 2014, Volvo discontinued its 5-cylinder engines.
