10 Things You Didn’t Know about the 2019 Volvo S90

When it comes to luxury cars, quality is everything. However, that quality can take place in many forms. Obviously, the car has to look appealing or no one seems to be interested, no matter how much thought was put into its construction or how much punishment it can take. Therefore, building a new car is something like walking a tightrope. You have to be able to incorporate things like quality, performance and technology, yet you’re putting it into something that has to look almost like a work of art in order to get anyone’s attention. That’s precisely what the S90 from Volvo has done. If you want to know more about this remarkable machine, you can read about 10 more things related to the car below.

1. The S90 is a relatively new car for Volvo

The car hasn’t really been around that long. As a matter of fact, the first S90 that rolled off the showroom floor was a 2017 model. Currently, 2019 models are becoming available. While the original S90 was certainly a very good automobile, the 2019 models are enough to turn heads, even for people that don’t consider themselves fans of Volvo. If you think that you’re not interested in driving a Volvo, keep reading. You’ll probably change your mind.

2. It comes in two different configurations

For 2019, the car will be available as a four-door sedan or in what is being marketed by Volvo as an estate car. This basically takes the company back to its roots, but it certainly has a modern twist on things at the same time. There’s even talk of creating a third variation, a coupe, although that won’t be available for at least another year.

3. Most people don’t really know what an estate car is

If you’re wondering what an estate car is, it’s a fancy term for station wagon. Remember, Volvo automobiles used to frequently appear in this configuration and then the company sort of got away from doing it. While they’re still offering the car as a sedan, the addition of the station wagon allows the company to accomplish two things. As previously mentioned, it takes them back to their roots and it also gauges consumer interest for future production models.

4. It’s assembled in Sweden

Granted, you probably already know that Volvo is a Swedish automotive company. However, it seems like cars are made all over the globe these days and they’re not always made in the country with which they are most commonly associated. This one, however, is still assembled in Sweden. The car is then exported to other countries for sale, as well as being sold all over its country of origin.

5. The car is considered a mid-size luxury sedan

The base model for 2019 is considered to be a mid-size luxury sedan. It’s also being marketed as an executive car. Those two terms can largely be used interchangeably. In either case, the car is being marketed towards people that want both performance and luxury, not to mention having enough room to move around without being too cramped.

6. You can get it with different drivetrain options

The vehicle can be purchased with a rear-wheel drivetrain or it can be configured as an all-wheel-drive model. That gives drivers more options when it comes to things like traction and control.

7. There are several different engine combinations to choose from

Drivers also have a lot of choices when it comes to the engine. They can choose a model that runs on gasoline, a diesel version, or a hybrid that is partially electric. A full electric model is also available.

8. It’s the successor to the much-loved Volvo S80

For a number of years, the S80 was Volvo’s most beloved vehicle. It was basically phased out to bring in the S90, and by all indications, people love this automobile even more than its predecessor.

9. The car is now considered the company’s flagship sedan

As a direct result, this is an automobile that is now considered the flagship for the company. Obviously, Volvo has put a lot of work into designing this automobile and everything from the powertrain to the smallest details of its design show it.

10. Models sent to the United States are configured somewhat differently

The cars that are exported to the United States are slightly different, as they have a longer wheelbase than other automobiles of the same name. This is because Volvo felt that American automobile drivers would respond better to a luxury sedan that was slightly larger, providing more leg room, especially in the back seat.
