There is some good news from Volvo. We have received spy shots
of the anticipated 2017 Volvo S90 which is in the final
development stages. According to rumors, the S90 will replace
the S80 and will adopt Volvo’s new design language.
The next generation of Volvo S90 is an improvement
from the S80 though it will borrow some styling cues from
the retiring automobile. The automaker aim is to increase its
competitiveness against more established sedans like the
Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6 and the BMW 5 Series.
2017 Volvo S90 Exterior
From the spy shots we have received, the S90 borrows much of
its exterior styling from the XC90 SUV and Concept Coupe. The S90 will come in
four doors. The front fascia of the S90 is more stylish and
sportier compared to the S80.
The front fascia of the sedan includes a vertical-slat grille,
its headlights resemble the ‘Thor’s hammer while day time
running lights are T-shaped. Just below the grille is a sporty
bumper which is hooked with three-part intake.
The sides of each intake will feature chrome strips. At each
end, the car spots slim fog lamps to improve visibility when
driving along badly illuminated areas. Its engine hood spots a
muscular look just like the one on the XC90. At the rear end,
the model has adopted the Concept Coupe’s styling which
features C-shaped taillights. The rear bumper is less
aggressive and is integrated with big exhaust pipes.
The vehicle also features slim pillars and a slanting roof line
that give the car a Coupe appearance. The auto maker is yet to
release official dimensions of the vehicle, make sure to come
back for more information on such specs. The 2017 Volvo S90
will ride in either 20-inch or 22-ich R-Design wheels.
2017 Volvo S90 Interior
Changing gears to the inside of the 2017 Volvo S90, motorists
will be welcomed by a modern looking stylish exterior. The car
will comfortably accommodate five passengers who will find
plenty of leg room between the seats. The seats are covered
with Nappa leather and they are ventilated and adjustable.
The center console will be hooked up with a 12-inch touch
screen that will control the vehicles infotainment system, air
conditioning and satellite navigation as well as other features
of the vehicle.
The new 2017 Volvo S90 will also feature Park Assist
Pilot, and Cross Traffic Alert which detects a car approaching
90 feet away from either side. We believe more features will be
installed as it is still early days before the vehicle hits the
