Not surprisingly, all the artillery more sporting variant is found on the S90 and V90. Shields, rims five branches with a matte black finish / diamond (which goes very well by the way), fog lamps integrated into the front spoiler or very shining tailpipes are of the game. The situation is the same in the cockpit with steering wheel, pedals and typed sport seats and leather and aluminum inserts and carbon fiber to spice things up.
Under the hood, the mechanics remains unchanged and is based on three diesel units: the 150 hp D3, D4 which reaches 190 nags and D5 which climbs to 235 horsepower. Listed gasoline, T5 and T6 nags 254 to 320 horsepower. The rechargeable hybrid-T8 version where a 2.0 liter engine is combined with another electrical unit for a combined output of 407 horsepower and 640 Nm of torque, also add to the catalog.
Under the hood, no power increase is planned pending Polestar versions. However, S90 and V90 R-Design hide a sophisticated sports suspension which, according to Volvo, offer “driving dynamics and give the impression to marry the road. “
“The production launch of the V90 marks a milestone for Volvo,” says Hakan Samuelsson, CEO of Volvo Cars. “We have so much invested in the preparation of the Torslanda plant to build vehicles based on the APS platform, it is encouraging to see the enthusiasm generated by the new models of the series 90. We continue our consolidation and our transformation continues to bear fruit. “
“If the new XC90, S90 and V90 have helped to rejuvenate the brand, Volvo transformation is just beginning,” added Samuelsson. “In three years, the XC90 will be the oldest model in our showroom. In other words, the new Series 90 will mark the beginnings of the revival of Volvo.”
