Volvo S90 with inputs from leaked scale models – Rendering

Posted on: Nov 9, 2015 - 2:18pm IST

Debut likely at 2016 NAIAS (Detroit Motor Show).

Autobild has updated its rendering of the upcoming Volvo S90, which will serve as the replacement of the Volvo S80. The mid-size luxury sedan is expected to debut at the 2016 NAIAS in January.

Drawing inputs from the leaked scale models, the exterior of the new Volvo S90 is influenced by Volvo’s design language that was first seen in the 2015 Volvo XC90. It features a long vertical-slat grille, LED headlamps with Thor hammer DRLs, and a new bumper design with chrome accents. Like all Volvo’s, it has a muscular shoulder line, chrome bezel for the window lining, and a chrome bar in the lower portion.

Revealed by a pre-production prototype, the interior follows the simple, button-free design direction that Volvo introduced to the masses through the XC90. It features a 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel, driver’s display, Head-Up Display, and a speaker tucked in the upper dashboard (likely part of the Bowers & Wilkins system).

The S90 will ride on Volvo’s newest SPA (Scalable Product Architecture) platform, which will be lighter and more efficient than the outgoing S80, that is built on an old Ford platform. Engine lineup is most likely to include the 2.0 Drive-E four-cylinder engines available in power states between 190 hp to 400 hp (Twin Engine hybrid).

An 8-speed automatic gearbox from the XC90 will serve as the sole transmission option, while an AWD system could be optional in higher variants. A go-faster Volvo S90 Polestar could also be in the mix later on in its lifecycle.
