The new Volvo S90 is now available in South Africa, making its local debut as the second brand-new Volvo since the company began its ‘New Dawn’ renaissance with the local launch of the all-new XC90 in 2015.
Marking Volvo’s return to the large executive sedan segment, the new S90 offers unprecedented Swedish luxury, supreme comfort and space, modern Scandinavian design, Drive-E efficiency and semi-autonomous driving as standard on all models.
The new S90, like the XC90, is built on Volvo Cars’ new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) and features a mixed offering of petrol and diesel engines, and is available in three trim levels to cater to a wide audience while also offering a broad spectrum of value and Swedish luxury.
The new Volvo S90 launches in South Africa initially with two engines – the D5 (173 kW; 480 Nm ) and T6 (235 kW; 400 Nm), both with all-wheel drive – in Momentum or Inscription guise. Later in 2017, the D4 (140 kW; 400 Nm) and T5 (187 kW; 350 Nm) derivatives will follow, with front-wheel drive, and the range-topping T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid (PHEV) will make its way to South Africa at a later date.
