The visual expression of the S90 exudes leadership and confidence on the exterior and features the signature new design language with Thor’s Hammer LED lights. This is complemented with a high-end luxury experience that promises comfort and control on the inside, and the driving dynamics, performance and ride quality push segment benchmarks a notch higher. Equipped with a host of new technologies in safety, cloud-based apps and services, the sedan comes with a powerful T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain and connected infotainment systems.
The S90 comes with an advanced semi-autonomous drive feature, Pilot Assist. The system gives gentle steering inputs to keep the car properly aligned within lane markings up to motorway speeds of around 130 km/h and no longer needs to follow another car. Pilot Assist is another step towards full autonomous drive – a key innovation area for Volvo. The S90 also introduces a system capable of detecting large animals such as elk, horses or moose, night or day. The technology offers an intuitive warning and brake support to help avoid a collision.
In India, the car is likely to be unveiled in the 4th quarter of 2016 to coincide with the festive season.
