2015 Volvo S90; Best Just Got Better
Fans all around the world, especially that of SUVs are all praising for the 2015 Volvo S90 and they have a reason in the shape of excellent performance, re-engineered design and amazing looks. S90 has replaced the previous flagship model S80 which in itself was a class apart. But things have even gone better as the all-new Volvo is greatly inspired by the XC90, which has already proved a very economical model for the company.
The Swedish car manufacturing company has high expectation from the vehicle and with improved features and design, it looks like they are all going to be met. The vehicle, however, is slightly overpriced, especially if you’re a fan of extra or added features. If you like S90 and thinking about owning one, expect nothing less than $80,000. 2015 Volvo S90 contains a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine coupled with an electric motor of 60kW. All this power generate a total of 250 hp and a torque of nearly 260 lb-ft. Talking about the transmission, Volvo S90 has a crisp 8-speed automatic. From a standstill position to 62 mph it only takes about 5.5, which is pretty impressive. Moving on to another aspect of the performance which is nothing short of exceptional is the mileage. The vehicle gives around 26 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on straight, fast highways. The mileage figure is better than many of the competitors and that makes the Volvo S90 one of the favorites of the critics.
The vehicle is greatly inspired by the XC90 when it comes to design. It has the similar headlights, front grills and chrome. However, the tail lights are bigger and rear quarter windows is a good addition to the overall design. Talking about the interior, there is a lot of leather used in 2015 Volvo S90. The seats are elegantly wrapped in fine leather covers. Most part of the dash gives you that nice hard and warm feeling. Other than that, the car has the huge tablet-like console in front which is equipped with all the latest infotainment features.
We always expect top-class safety features from every vehicle made by Volvo. With 2015 Volvo S90 it is not different as well. The vehicle is packed with cutting-edge safety features. The vehicle has the world’s first animal detection system which works hand in hand with the braking system of the vehicle. This system identifies animals such as kangaroos and cattle and warns the driver. To avoid the collision, this system is even capable of applying automatic emergency brakes.
Although not much has changed when it comes to the exterior of the vehicle but when we consider the latest features and driving experience, the S90 is surely one of the cars you would want to drive this year. Especially if you are fine with spending a little extra for all that.
