Used Volvo S90 for sale
The S90 is an executive car that is built to a high degree of luxury; perfect for comfortable cruises up and down the motorways of Britain. Flagship of the Volvo brand, it sits above other models in the range such as the S60 and threatens popular German alternatives that have dominated the market for so long.
Cars of this nature can often demand serious money, meaning they must offer a range of features to catch the eyes of potential buyers. The following benefits are just a few of the reasons why you should consider the S90:
- Sleek exterior styling
- Loaded with advanced technology
- Excellent safety rating
- Various powertrains to choose from
- Fairly spacious interior
Engines and Driving Experience
The S90 is built with a focus on comfort rather than performance, soaking up the bumps and cracks of the average British road with relative ease. This does mean it's not the most dynamic to drive however, with rivals, such as the BMW 5 Series, feeling more controlled when cornering. The most common powertrains include:
- 2.0-litre D3: 148bhp, 0 to 62mph in 9.9 seconds and up to 53mpg combined
- 2.0-litre D4: 187bhp, 0 to 62mph in 8.2 seconds and up to 50mpg combined
- 2.0-litre D5: 232bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7.0 seconds and up to 43mpg combined
Plug-in hybrid 'Recharge'
- 2.0-litre T8: 299bhp, 0 to 62mph in 5.1 seconds, up to 166mpg and 32-mile EV range with the batteries fully charged
You may also be able to find cars with a mild hybrid powertrain ('B' badged cars) such as the B4 and B5, but these are less common.
Practicality and Running Costs
Four adults will be able to ride comfortably in the spacious interior of the S90, although taller passengers may find it tight in the rear due to a lower roofline than other options. There's no issue when it comes to leg and kneeroom though, and there's plenty of handy storage compartments placed around the cabin.
500 litres of boot space is enough for a few bags of luggage, but if you require more space you can drop the rear seats in a 40:20:40 setup, granting access to a larger area. ISOFIX mounting points on the outer rear seats are also present, allowing you to easily fasten a child seat for the journey ahead.
Insurance is around what you'd expect for an executive car, ranging between groups 27 and 44 (out of 50) dependent upon specification. To save a bit of money, low cost servicing and maintenance can be carried out at your nearest Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Sharing a lot of features with siblings such as the XC90 SUV, the S90's interior is well-built and a pleasant place to spend time. The dashboard provides a minimalist design, opting for a large touchscreen infotainment system as the hub for controls and settings as opposed to traditional physical buttons and knobs.
Within the easy-to-use infotainment system lives tech such as Google services, whilst LED headlights and front and rear parking sensors come as standard too. Opting for a higher specification sees you blessed with further advanced technology such as a Bowers and Wilkins audio system and a climate pack which includes heated front seats.
As expected, the S90 performs well when it comes to safety too, earning the full five-star rating from Euro NCAP thanks to safety features such as:
- 360-degree camera
- BLIS with cross traffic alert
- Rear park assist
- Lane keeping aid
- Post impact braking
Is the Volvo S90 right for me?
The Volvo S90 offers top levels of luxury, a refined ride and plenty of advanced technology, making it ideal for commutes and long journeys around Britain's motorway network.
Rivals include contenders from popular German brands such as the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6. If you're working with a smaller budget, alternatives such as the Skoda Superb are great value for money.
