Overall LOVING my 2018 S90 Momentum
PSR, 4/21/2018
Silver with the blonde interior; the car looks fantastic! I love the Thor's hammer headlights and the wide stance of the vehicle with the big 19' Pirellis. I've got lots of extras on it, which are functional and work super well. But my only concern with this car is the ride...at times very hard and not as sophisticated as a car at this price point should feel. Excellent gas mileage; great on the road feeling. LOVE LOVE LOVE the backseat legroom and the extra right passenger side buttons that control front right seat and sunroof. The car LOOKS serious, which I love. I've gotten many compliments on it. Pick up on this super well designed 4-cylinder turbo is beyond impressive. Love the stereo (standard) and the 360 camera. At times, the sensors for parking and other safety functions seem a little too sensitive but rather that than the opposite. Seat comfort is FANTASTIC, front and back. Ventilation and climate control are superb. Interior materials on all surfaces are FAR SUPERIOR to many makes of car. No rattles, squeaks or creaks throughout. I'm very happy with my S90, an upgrade from my 2016 S60 Inscription sedan. No regrets. Volvo is ROCKING the automotive world in many ways!
Better than my Audi and Lexus
Greg, 4/27/2018
This is my first Volvo, and I like it much better than my 2018 Audi. The touch screen eliminates all the draw pads and knobs which I thought were a pain. Everything is so simple and intuitive. The auto pilot beats every other gizmo out there. I waited to see th 2019 Lexus ES300h, which I also owned when it first came out and loved the gas mileage. That is not such an issue these days, and, I’m tired of how Lexus keeps making their grill more and more crazy horizontal, vertical, etc. The Volvo has an elegant look, and the back seat has even more room than the Lexus. It drives nicely and has a huge sunroof. The rear seat has buttons to move the front seat forward, and can also adjust the sunroof shade. Both rear seats fold down for extra trunk space. The trunk opens with your foot and closes automatically. In addition to the touch screen, which behaves like an iPad with swiping, Volvo has a great iPhone app that starts the car using On Call. It can also lock and share stats. It’s much better than the Audi app that was created with weird, multiple tabs. I got the T5 for better mileage. The engine is a little noisy, but, that’s ok. I’m very happy with driving this luxury sedan and got a good deal on it. Signing the contract was awesome. Th finance office desk is a actually a 3 x 4 giant screen and all you do is review and click. Completely paperless! I was in and out in minutes and they didn’t push all the extra warranties like Audi. Very pleased!
NEED EXPLANATION,
R.Werwinski, 11/25/2017
STILL LOOKING , I see comments on the ride and some problems with the console screen.. Hope to get some responses from Volvo makers on anything being done to answer these negative comments. Thank, you
V for Volvo!
MOHAN DAVID, 9/19/2017
It's pricey with all the bells and whistles I got! Extremely techy - which I love! Seems to have taken care of all the intricate details. For a car that is at this level of price, the mud flaps and floor mats should have been provided - with the Volvo logo!

More about the 2018 Volvo S90

Volvo likely isn't the first brand you think of when it comes to luxury sedans, but the S90 might change your mind. With stately exterior styling, a very attractive interior and all of the latest high-tech safety features, this big four-door is poised to challenge competitors from Audi, BMW and Mercedes.

Standard feature highlights for the base T5 Momentum trim include LED headlights with automatic high beams, a panoramic sunroof, selectable drive modes, leather upholstery, wood interior trim, a 9-inch touchscreen with Volvo's Sensus infotainment system, a navigation system and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. You also get forward collision warning and mitigation, the Pilot Assist semiautonomous driving system, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, Run-off Road mitigation and protection, Oncoming Lane Mitigation, a drowsy driver alert system and a traffic sign reader. The T6 Momentum adds heated front seats and a 12-inch virtual instrument panel.

The T6 Inscription trim adds adaptive headlights, four-zone automatic climate control, a cooled glovebox, upgraded wood interior trim, premium leather upholstery, leather coverings on the dash and door panels, ventilated front seats and power sunshades for rear windows. The optional Convenience package includes items such as front parking sensors, an automated parking system, a power trunklid and a surround-view camera system.

Other options include an air-ride suspension, a head-up display, a premium audio system and a heated steering wheel. The Inscription trim is eligible for 20-inch wheels and the Luxury package (massaging front seats, heated rear outboard seats, ventilated rear seats, an upgraded rear-seat center armrest, additional leather coverings and a suede headliner).

In terms of price, the 2018 Volvo S90 is competitive with midsize luxury sedans such as the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. In terms of size, however, the S90 is closer to the larger flagship sedans that include the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class. It can then be argued that for the price of a midsize, you're getting a larger luxury vehicle with a distinct edge in feature content and an unparalleled reputation for safety. Check out all of Edmunds' tools to see which model is right for you.
