Volvo says it has ‘a very strong offer’ as new V90 unveiled

Time 11:25 am, February 18, 2016

THE new Volvo V90 was unveiled today in Stockholm, Sweden.

The car is the latest in the manufacturer’s top-of-the-line 90 series, sitting alongside the award-winning XC90 SUV and the recently-launched S90 premium saloon.

Building on Volvo Cars’ heritage in the estate segment, the carmaker says the new V90 takes the premium estate a step forward in terms of aesthetics, materials and finish, while still being extremely practical.

The new V90 is the third car unveiled in Volvo’s top-of-the-line 90 series, all of which are built on the company’s specially designed and fully modular Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which has opened up a range of new opportunities in terms of how Volvos can be designed, built and equipped.


It is equipped with Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive technology; a highly advanced standard safety package; and class-leading connectivity, including smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay.

Dr Peter Mertens, senior vice president of research and development at Volvo Cars, said: ‘We have a very strong offer in the V90.

‘Our PowerPulse technology is designed to deliver a distinct performance boost to our diesel engine, while the T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid will deliver around 410 hp and a pure electric range of around 31 miles.’
