If there's one word we would use to describe the all-new Volvo S90, it would be "stately." Everything about it, from the way it looks to the way it effortlessly cruises down a stretch of road, gives the impression that you need to be a person of success and influence to be able to handle such a vehicle. A stately kind of person, if you will.
Fortunately, for those who are successful and influential enough to own one, the S90 was recently launched here in the Philippines. Soon enough, you'll be seeing these four-door, five-seat sedans cruising down our streets and highways in class.
Inside the S90, you can experience the wonders of Sensus, a touchscreen interface that combines car functions and entertainment in one intuitive package. True to Volvo's reputation for safety, the car comes equipped with City Safety Technology. This combines automatic braking and collision avoidance systems to help keep you and your car as safe and stately as possible.
Two variants are available in our market. The S90 T5 is powered by a four-cylinder turbocharged engine capable of 254hp and 350Nm. The S90 D4, which has a four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine under the hood, has fewer horses (190hp), but packs more torque (400Nm). Both variants have a top speed of 230kph. The D4 touts a fuel consumption of 22.72km/L, while the T5 variant is said to be able to achieve 15.38km/L. Below are their prices:
* S90 T5 - P4,195,000
* S90 D4 - P3,995,000
