Volvo S90 flagship luxury sedan which will pickup a fight with accomplished German trio of Mercedes S Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8 has been leaked through what appears to be a set of official scale models. The made-in-China miniature has design lines conforming to Volvo’s latest philosophy, with inspiration coming from Concept Coupe.
The premium sedan based on Volvo’s Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA) would share powertrain and several components with new XC90. The sleek headlamps with ‘Thor’s hammer’ daytime LED signature, new chrome outlined rectangular grille and a sporty bumper with silver fog light ornaments make up the front fascia.
A long bonnet, arching roof line and clean sheet metal design render an understated yet elegant appeal to the sedan. The rear fascia gets a fast back-like windshield, massive C-shaped taillights sandwiching ‘Volvo’ badge and a protruded bumper with chrome tipped dual exhaust.
The interior design, materials and trims are expected to be heavily borrowed from its SUV sibling. A comprehensive infotainment system, a complete suite of advanced driver assistance systems and a plethora of safety equipment would be in the offing.
A range of downsized four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines under VEA family will constitute the powertrain lineup. Higher variants would use hybrid assistance to offer more power without compromising on efficiency.
Expect Volvo to be ready with S90 sometime next year. A Geneva Motor Show debut in March is probable.
