What’s new? Upmarket Swedish saloon is lengthened for those who prefer to be driven

The Volvo S90 has been given the long-wheelbase treatment for the Chinese and US markets. The rear doors are longer as a result of the 120mm stretch, leading to a more balanced look to the car’s design.

Rear passengers, seated in heated and cooled chairs, gain considerable legroom. The person sitting on the right can control the sunroof and the window blinds, as well as move the front passenger seat forward.

To drive, the S90 is more sluggish than the 250bhp produced by its 2.0 turbocharged four-pot petrol might suggest. In the manner of a classic limousine, it steers lightly, rides softly and handles adequately – but laid-back cruising comfort is plainly all it aspires to. MA
