Dean Shaw, Volvo Cars USA’s handsomely bespectacled VP of corporate comms, bellows the word to a ballroom full of sleepy-eyed car journalists—conceivably to both wake them up and emphasize what the morning’s lecture would focus on: “Electrification!”
The 2018 Volvo S90 will make you feel fancier just by sitting in it. Between its clean Swedish lines and ornamental buttons, you may leave this car wondering why any other luxury car exists. If it’s not as fancy as the Volvo, just take it away. It is unworthy of carrying you.
As I have laid out to you before, I hate using public roadways. Not only is the plebish threat of traffic a very real thing, I am also forced to look at the common folk—an event that leaves me with migraines and mild indigestion for hours afterwards. Which is why I was so thrilled when I heard about Volvo’s new S90…
Every car nowadays has to be some other dumb thing. “It’s not a car, it’s a lounge,” they say. “It’s not a car, it’s a fighter jet,” they bray, ignoring the fact that fighter jets primarily exist to kill people. Cars are active “urban utility lifestyle vehicles,” or “technology.” But what if—and I know this sounds…
As if there weren’t gas stations all over the place or something like that, Volvo announced on Thursday that owners will be able to have gas delivered right to their vehicles by using a smartphone app. Owners can also have their cars taken in for a wash or service, because only peasants do that stuff by hand.
I don’t know if there’s a normal car on the market that makes you feel like a more satisfied, better person than a full-size Volvo, and I’m not sure there’s a better Volvo than a big, tall wagon.
Volvo’s most luxurious new car will be made in China and oddly it’s a three-seater.
The first vehicle out of New Volvo was the Volvo XC90, and that was pretty swell. But if we’re going to be talking about traditional Volvos, it’s got to be a big Swedish sedan. That’s what the 2017 Volvo S90 is supposed to be, and already it is very, very good.
After driving the all-important, all-new and admittedly all-fantastic Volvo XC90 SUV, I was curious to see whether Volvo could cook up a mid-sized luxury sedan and wagon that can make one forget about the German or Japanese competition. After stepping out of the new Volvo S90 sedan and V90 wagon, I would say the job…
Because Volvo’s resurrection is not complete until everything is bedecked in the finest wood and crystal, the 2017 Volvo S90 is getting the Excellence treatment. We first saw the ultra-luxe variant on the Volvo XC90 Excellence, but this is for the non-SUV crowd. And along with a fridge, it’s got a shoebox.
Superman is known for his unrivaled strength, x-ray vision, ability to fly, and his indestructibility. It’s that last element of the superhero that Volvo seems to have clued in on with its modern range of vehicles, and the new S90 luxury sedan make should make you feel as indestructible driving it as possible.
Volvo is clearly in the middle of some big changes right now, and during my trip to Gothenberg this week I had a lot on my mind. I wanted to know why the 2016 S90 turned out the way it did, how fast Polestar will go, what Volvo thinks of the Germans, and how it will respond to those who miss a few cylinders from their…
Few things in the world of cars suck as much as turbo lag. We want power, and we want it now! Volvo agrees, so with the new diesel 2017 S90 sedan, they’re using an air compressor, a bottle and a valve to let those sweet prancing horses out as quickly as possible. Let’s find out how it works.
Following the full-scale presentation of the all new Volvo S90, Volvo confirmed that the sportier-tuned versions of its new flagship sedan and its V90 wagon sibling will be getting the Polestar tuning treatment - possibly with hybrid-electric power.
What are words? Or better, what is car design?
This is the new 2017 Volvo S90, packing a 407 horsepower hybrid drivetrain, the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive system upgraded to work at up to 80 mph, the anti-kangaroo tech they call City Safety and a huge tablet in the middle with Apple CarPlay (or Android, if you’re one of those people) and a bunch of…
The Volvo S90 sedan will be revealed tomorrow in Gothenburg, and since I’m here to witness the miracle, let’s go on and dig into Volvo’s future together!
The Volvo S90 is the brand’s return to building flagship vehicles that we’ve been waiting for and this image above is allegedly it. Why allegedly? Well, the source of these photos, actually, is almost as interesting as the car itself.
