NEW YORK — Volvo dealers are taking orders now for the all-new 2017 Volvo S90 midsize luxury sedan, which arrives in showrooms this summer starting at $47,945. The price includes a $995 destination charge.
In addition, car shoppers also can buy the S90 online with the assistance of a Volvo Concierge. All cars ordered online will be delivered through Volvo dealers.
"The Volvo Concierge will stay in constant contact with the future S90 owners, notifying them of when the car has been shipped from Sweden and when it is expected to arrive," Volvo said in a statement at the 2016 New York Auto Show.
In comparison, the base 2016 S80 starts at $44,390, including a $940 destination charge.
The base price is for the 2017 S90 T5 Momentum, which is equipped with the 2.0-liter T5 turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 250 horsepower. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
A leather interior and Thor's Hammer LED headlights are standard.
The S90 T6 AWD Momentum is priced at $53,945, including shipping. It is equipped with a 316-hp 2.0-liter T6 turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
Standard features include heated front seats, all-wheel drive and dual integrated tailpipes.
Semi-autonomous driving technology is standard in the S90. The Volvo Pilot Assist lets the car speed up, slow down, brake and steer at speeds of up to 80 mph.
Large Animal Detection, which automatically stops the car to avoid or mitigate a crash with a deer or other animal is standard.
Run-Off Road Mitigation is another standard safety feature. It detects if the car is about to leave the road and gently steers it.
Volvo did not announce pricing on the S90 T8 plug-in hybrid model. It said the plug-in hybrid version debuts later.
Edmunds says: The Volvo S90 gets a significant price increase compared to the outgoing S80, but all the standard technology should make it worth it to many luxury shoppers.
