2018 Volvo S90

What We Like

Impressive safety features (a Volvo hallmark); tasteful yet luxurious interior design; impressive fuel economy for a large sedan; great infotainment system.

What We Don't

The smallest engine sometimes struggles with such a hefty car.

What's New in the 2018 Volvo S90?

More rear space. After just one year on the market, the S90 grows by 4.5 inches, all of which is just past the center pillar resulting in a generous 40.4 inches of rear legroom. A panoramic sunroof with a powered sunshade is also standard, joining an expanded list that also includes blind spot monitoring. Some options bundles have also been rearranged.

The Sensus infotainment system's interface has been updated for a more user-friendly experience, while active lane-keeping assist becomes available. All-wheel drive is now an option with the entry level T5 drivetrain. And the range acquires the T8 plug-in hybrid setup, as found in the XC90 SUV that shares a platform with the S90 sedan. See the 2018 Volvo S90 models for sale near you

Which S90 is the Best?

Naturally, it all comes down to cost, but a T6 version in Momentum trim comes with a decent amount of power and equipment.

2018 Volvo S90 vs the competition

2018 Acura RLX -- Updated for 2018. Always worth considering for the equipment/cost equation.

2018 Audi A6 -- Wonderful in so many ways, but a new generation is coming down the pipeline.

2018 BMW 5 Series -- An all-new generation debuts for 2018. Excels in so many areas.

2018 Cadillac XTS -- Front-wheel-drive and rides like a luxury car should. Spacious, well-priced and well-equipped.

2018 Genesis G80 -- Comes with a lot of equipment for the price, but doesn't seem quite as "fully baked" as most contenders here.

2018 Lexus GS -- Getting a little old now, but still spacious, luxurious, well put together and enjoyable to drive.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- A new generation debuted last year. Technology, safety features, comfort, driving abilities and smart styling are all in abundance.

Used Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- The trouble with buying a pre-owned car is that it won't have such up-to-the-minute technology. But the S-Class has never been short of great features. That's why it's the best seller in its segment.
