Volvo intends to shake up the premium sedan segment with its new Volvo S90. The new Volvo S90 will also offer one of the most luxuriously appointed interiors and connected infotainment systems in the large sedan segment.
The Volvo S80 T5 is powered by the new four-cylinder, two-litre, turbocharged petrol engine. It T5 delivers 180 kW (245 hp) at 5,500 rpm. The 350 Newton metres of torque is available between 1,500 and 4,800 rpm. Thanks to this huge torque, the engine feels much “bigger” considering that its displacement is just 1,995 cc
Volvo Cars unveiled the all-new XC90. The new XC90 will be the first car to carry the company’s new more prominent iron mark, which has the iconic arrow elegantly aligned with the diagonal slash across the grille. Together with the T-shaped “Thor’s Hammer” DRL lights, the iron mark introduces an entirely new, distinctive and confident face for Volvo’s forthcoming generation of cars.
For the all-new XC90, the top of the range Twin Engine will carry the badge T8 and be a plug-in electric car, hybrid car and high-performance car rolled into one. Normal driving is conducted in the default hybrid mode. This utilises a two-litre, four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged Drive-E petrol engine that powers the front wheels and an 80 hp (60 kW) electric motor that drives the rear wheels.
Volvo Cars has released the first interior images of the all-new Volvo XC90. The new XC90’s interior combines materials such as soft leather and wood with handcrafted details including a gear lever made of crystal glass from Orrefors, the famous Swedish glass maker, and diamond-cut controls for the start/stop button and volume control.
