Septem­ber ar­rivals

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drive Time Extra - Ex­cit­ing new­com­ers

Volvo’s new S90 sa­loon and V90 es­tate mod­els will cost from £32,555 and £34,555 when they ar­rive in the UK in Septem­ber.

Like the XC90 off-roader be­fore them, the new­com­ers fea­ture the new face of Volvo, in­clud­ing the Swedish brand’s T-shaped LED headlights, and are pow­ered by the ef­fi­cient Drive-E en­gines.

Both mod­els will ini­tially be avail­able with a choice of two 2.0- litre, four- cylin­der diesel en­gines – the tax-ef­fi­cient D4 and the re­fined D5 Pow­erPulse – and in two trim lev­els, Mo­men­tum and In­scrip­tion.

The front-wheel-drive 190bhp D4 comes with an eight-speed au­to­matic gear­box and of­fers com­bined fuel con­sump­tion of 64.2 mpg and CO2 emis­sions of 116g/km in the S90. In the V90, the cor­re­spond­ing fig­ures are 62.8 mpg and 119g/km.

De­vel­op­ing a hefty 235bhp, D5 Pow­erPulse uses com­pressed air to boost the turbo at low revs, and also comes with all-wheel drive.

Volvo says ev­ery ver­sion of the S90 and V90 will be lux­u­ri­ously equipped, even en­try grade vari­ants in­clud­ing the likes of leather up­hol­stery, LED headlights, two- zone cli­mate con­trol air- fil­tra­tion, key­less en­gine start­ing and heated front seats.

Volvo’s Sen­sus in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem is also stan­dard - bring­ing a nine- inch touch­screen, sat­nav), voice-con­trol plus ac­cess to the in­ter­net and cloud-based apps, and there’s also a pow­ered bootlid/tail­gate.

Pi­lot As­sist, Volvo’s semi­au­tonomous drive fea­ture, is stan­dard on ev­ery S90 and V90 along with the lat­est ver­sion of City Safety.Mov­ing up to In­scrip­tion adds stuff like soft leather up­hol­stery.
