Getting to the interior, new features of the facelifted Volvo S90 include an advanced air cleaner with a PM 2.5 particle sensor (was exclusive to China in the old car), upgraded Bowers & Wilkins audio system with an upgraded amplifier and automatic vehicle noise cancellation, double USB-C charging points in the rear (as a replacement for the 12-volt outlets) and wireless charging functionality for smartphones. Buyers of the new Volvo S90 will be to select the exclusive tailored wool-blend seats, which were first introduced in the new Volvo XC90 last year.

Last year, Volvo had introduced mild-hybrid technology on the XC60 and XC90 luxury SUVs. Now, it has introduced the fuel-sipping system on the S90 as well. The company says that its mild hybrid vehicles offer up to 15% fuel savings and emission reductions.
