Volvo has gained global recognition for developing one of the most opulent and safe cars. The company has recently introduced its new flagship sedan, the Volvo S90, in the Indian market in its fully-loaded Inscription trim. The sedan, similar to the entire Volvo product line-up, would be retailed as CBU while replacing the ageing S80 in the Indian market. It comes loaded with a plethora of premium features, while the exterior styling takes cues from Volvo’s latest Scandinavian design language, which has already been seen on the all-new XC90 SUV. For the time being, it has been launched in the diesel fuel trim only as the petrol variant is expected to launch next year. Volvo S90 2016 is up against the likes of BMW 5-Series, Mercedes E-Class, Audi A6 and Jaguar XF.





Carrying forward the legacy of Scandinavian designing and based on the globally-acclaimed ‘Concept Coupe,’ the S90 is probably the best-looking sedan in the segment. Volvo S90 images flaunt a chrome-finished front grille and Volvo Ironmark, which are flanked by the XC90-inspired Full-LED Thor’s Hammer headlights.

Volvo S90 is the longest sedan in the segment, with a length of nearly 5 meter. Coming to the rear end of the Volvo S90 exterior, there is a new LED tail-lamp cluster to further accentuate the appeal of the sedan. The Swedish automaker is also offering a special chrome finish exterior package. Volvo S90 colours are not yet known.


Ford EcoSport interior match the exterior in every respect. The vehicle is a tall one. The designing of the cabin makes it look more spacious than it is. In spite of the high ground clearance, the car provides adequate headroom for occupants. One of the salient features of Ford EcoSport interior in the top-end models is the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Ford’s latest SYNC 3 system features both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The lower-end models get a similar system, but with a smaller touchscreen measuring 6.5 inches.

You can experience the difference as you enter the Ford EcoSport. Plush seats with high-quality fabric beckon you to have a seat. The height of the cabin is such that you get enough headroom. The driver seat presents an ideal view of the road ahead. A fantastic dashboard with both analogue and digital indicators greets the driver. Adjustable headrests for all rows add to the overall comfort.

Infotainment system is compatible with Bluetooth and has adequate connectivity options, like Aux-In and USB. The driver gets immediate reminders like engine malfunction, headlight alert, low fuel warning, fasten seatbelt warning, and key off alerts. Different indicators like fuel gauge and distance to fuel empty status are welcome additions. Ford EcoSport does not have a big boot, but it is adequate to store your luggage when you go on long trips




Volvo S90 is powered by a sub-2.0 L 4-cylinder in-line turbocharged diesel engine. It is a Euro 6 compliant motor and is derived from the Drive-E family. The power train develops 190 bhp of top power and 400 Nm of peak torque. The Volvo S90 specifications clearly reflect that it is a perfect amalgamation of power and comfort. It is linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which transmits the power to the front wheels. There is a drive mode selector with three modes: Eco, Comfort and Dynamic. It does the 0-100 kmph sprint in just 8.2 seconds.

The Volvo S90 mileage figures are not officially announced, but we expect it to deliver around 10-11 kmpl in ideal conditions.

The Volvo S90 reviews have revealed that NVH levels of the sedan are refined and that there is barely any engine noise audible in the cabin. It features an independent air-suspension on the rear wheels, which makes the journey even more comfortable. It sails smoothly on the highway and even at the corners, it performs exceedingly well due to impeccable handling.




Safety has been Volvo’s forte right from the inception of the brand, and the Volvo S90 proves it, coming with several avant-garde safety equipment, which include Lane Keeping Aid, Emergency Brake Assist, Seatbelt Pretensioners for all seats, Child Booster Cushion, High strength Boron Steel, Whiplash Protection and Side Impact Protection.



Given how aggressively the company has set Volvo S90 price in India, it is an all-out winner in the segment that is dominated by the Germans. It is at par with its German foes, owing to the fully-loaded Volvo S90 variants, be it in terms of performance, features or design. Despite being a CBU, the Volvo S90 price is an eye-opener and has fetched the Swedish automaker several orders, and it might do better than expected in near future.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Volvo S90


When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

Volvo S90 Expert Reviews

Excellent car with a glitch
for Volvo S90

This car has all the pros buy only me cons and that’s a problem with the tyre. They are using very low profile tyre according to the car and Indian roads so if the car runs on to any small or big pothole the tyre will be bumped or burst every time and the company didn’t support at all as they blame Indian road conditions
