What's New For 2018?
Volvo is now offering a longer wheelbase version of the 2018 Volvo S90, having elongated it by 4.5 inches. Also new for the model year is the T8 plug-in hybrid variant. To top things off, several previously optional features are now standard.
The S90 is only available as a large luxury sedan, and there is no option for the shorter wheelbase that we have seen in previous years. You can opt for a gas-powered T5 or T6 or the hybrid T8 model.
There are two different trim levels to choose from on the 2018 Volvo S90, and either trim can come with the T5, T6, or T8 powertrain configuration. The Momentum is the base trim, and on the T5, it features a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition and entry, a 10-speaker sound system, and the Pilot Assist system, which is Volvo's semiautonomous driving feature. The T6 Momentum adds a 12-inch instrument panel and heated front seats. The Inscription is the line-topping trim level, and it features a cooling glove box, a chic leather interior design, and ventilated front seats. The T8 hybrid variant gets a stunning crystal shift knob in addition to the other luxurious features you will find on the S90.
Each of the three powertrains provides ample power to the S90. The T5 features a 2.0-L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that generates 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The T6 outdoes that with a 2.0-L that is both super- and turbo-charged, puts out 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, and comes with standard all-wheel drive. The T8 takes the T6's gas-powered engine and slaps an 87-hp electric motor onto the powertrain to create a combined 400 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. These are all paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth shifting between gears and gives the 2018 Volvo S90 a swift acceleration rate. Braking on the S90 also feels natural and secure, outperforming some of the other Volvos. Steering can be a little bit fatiguing on longer drives, but it feels on-point during shorter ventures. While the car's weight does limit its overall performance, switching over into Sport mode can create a more thrilling ride.
Having 4-cylinder engines that sit on the smaller side of the spectrum help to make the 2018 Volvo S90 one of the more fuel-efficient luxury sedans. The top numbers you can get are on the T5 with FWD, which will garner you a combined 27 mpg (24 mpg city/34 mpg highway). A T5 with AWD will get you 26 mpg combined (23 mpg city/32 mpg highway). The lowest fuel economy you can get on the S90 is on the T6 with AWD, which gets 25 mpg combined. The T8's numbers have not yet been released, but you should be able to get about 20 miles on electric-only.
The 2018 S90 is being hailed as one of the best large luxury sedans for the model year. Despite some issues with steering and being weighted down, the S90 is a reliable and fuel-efficient vehicle that is worthy of taking for a test drive.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Volvo S90 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Volvo S90 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
