Ladies and gentlemen of the Internet, please stand for the newly facelifted Volvo V90 and V90 Cross Country wagons and the updated S90 sedan. All three have been given a radical redesign from the ground up—nah, just kidding. It’s just new headlamps and admittedly interesting interior additions.
Actually, that might be a bit harsh, because in the arty press shots above, the nerdiest among you may be able to spot that Volvo has given its 90 series some new foglights and front bumpers, too. And new spoilers at the rear.
Although if we’re honest, Volvo got things very right on the styling front with the pre-facelift V90 and S90, didn’t it? There really wasn’t much it could do to improve the looks.
So, to those interior upgrades. The 90 series has been given an all-new Bowers & Wilkins sound system with an upgraded amplifier and noise-cancellation tech. Apparently, it also features a new setting that ‘mimics the sound of your favorite jazz club.’
Then there’s the new ‘interior air-filtration system’ that allows drivers to monitor the cabin’s air quality and clean it of tiny particles in a matter of minutes. Lovely. There might just be a few less particles in there, too, because the 90s have now gained 48V mild hybrid powertrains across the range.
So, what do you think? Would you fancy one of these over a 5-Series or an E-Class?
