2017 Volvo S90 review, a high-tech luxury sedan


Creamy light leather and open-pore walnut wood frame a cutting-edge, iPad-style center screen. Metal grilles cover the Bowers & Wilkins stereo. Volvo says the system was tuned to replicate the Gothenburg Concert Hall. Sure, it sounds like a gimmick, but I can confirm the speakers are pretty darn good.

Essential controls like the starter, drive mode selector and volume knob are all wrapped in gorgeous metal trim. The entire interior is old-school luxury — think East Coast country club — playing in harmony with new-age technology.

Volvo’s well-known for making some of the best seats in the industry, and I can confirm that the thrones in the S90 are fit for even the most sore-backed king. They hug kidneys without squeezing too tight and offer comfortable lumbar support that’s not too hard.
