Tyskland Beware: Volvo S90 Officially Presented
|   Sunday, January 03, 2016
Yes, Tyskland exists and it's actually Swedish for Germany. Now, even if the new Volvo S90 world premiere will take place at the Auto Show in Detroit in January 2016, the Swedish luxury sedan was unveiled at a special event at Gothenburg.

Much of the exterior of the new premium sedan is inspired by the Volvo Concept Coupe. The similarities with the concept can be seen in the calender with LED lights in the shape of a horizontal T, the contour and shape of the side windows and at the rear original blocks.


Overall, the look of the new Volvo S90 is expressive, dynamic, elegant and even futuristic; a real fresh breeze from Scandinavia! The interior is very spacious, especially for rear passengers, while the front receives a similar design with the XC90, but with minor adjustments that make it more elegant and refined.
Air intakes on the center console are elegantly integrated in the multimedia display system's contour, while wood inserts are larger than those found in the XC90. From the Swedish SUV, the new S90 has borrowed elements like the dashboard, steering wheel and gear lever.

Being built on the same SPA platform, on which the SUV XC90 is based too, the new S90 will borrow from the latter practically the whole range of engines - D4 (190 hp and 400 Nm of torque), D5 (225 hp and torque 470 Nm), T6 (320 hp and 400 Nm torque), and the hybrid drive T8 Twin-Engine which develops 400 hp and 640 Nm of torque.

The new S90 will be front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, with a manual 6-speed gearbox or automatic gearbox, in 8 steps. More than this, with the new S90 debuts a new technology for the D5 diesel version coupled to an automatic gearbox (FWD or AWD) called PowerPulse, which offers better acceleration, thanks to a reservoir of 2 liters of compressed air (compressed during driving), which aspires under pressure the air in the exhaust manifold, thereby increasing the rotation of the turbine, which in turn increases the power and acceleration. Something similar is used in rally racing, although the working principle is different.

The new Volvo S90 will not be deprived of active and passive safety systems. At the chassis' construction high-strength steel that is 35 percent of the total weight of the bodywork has been widely used.

Active safety systems called IntelliSafe package are very different, starting with the famous City Safety, and ending with new systems presented for the first time, like the Large Animal Detection, Run-off Road Mitigation and Pilot Assist.

Thanks to Large Animal Detection, the new S90 can detect large animals and avoid collision with them at lower speeds, while at higher speeds the system can reduce speed by 15 km / h, thus reducing the impact consequences.

In turn, the Run-off Protection system "feels" when the car tends to go out of control and avoids accident at speeds between 65 and 140 km / h by acting the steering wheel and brakes. This system is unique in the world!

The S90 will compete with models like the BMW 5 Series, Jaguar XF, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6.
