We all saw the new XC90 of Sweden carmaker, but that is not all that comes from this frozen Scandinavian country. Volvo officially presented its all-new flagship sedan this year. Outgoing S80 model is replaced with 2017 Volvo S90 that has implemented all new design language. The first time we saw it in Gothenburg Sweden, but its premiere was in January, at Detroit Show.

With Company’s new design language, that we already saw for the first time two years ago on XC90, that will certainly be the case. What kind of innovations will new sedan bring? Many, but let’s talk about that amazing design first.
2017 Volvo S90 – Exterior
Unlike S80, new sedan slightly bigger, but that is not so important. The more important thing will mention is that it will share the same platform as its bigger sibling XC90. In other words, on Scalable Product Architecture platform body will be built with all Volvo’s key design and features. Front fascia will feature a wide grille with vertical chrome bars. In top corners, you can see Volvo’s new ‘Thor’s Hammer’ LED daytime running lights. If you look from the side you can see that it has distinctive coupe roof line which ends with the slightly shorter trunk lid. On both ends, you will see large, but thin see “C”-shaped rear lights. Two large chrome exhaust pipes blend in perfectly in the new design. To sum it all up, 2017 Volvo S90 looks more aggressive, but also quite elegant, unlike anything you’ve seen before.
